Industry Partner Members (formerly Friends of IREM)

Delaware Valley Chapter implemented the Industry Partner Program in the fall of 1988. The purpose of this program is to foster professional relationships between IREM Delaware Valley Chapter and a mix of locally represented, reputable quality real estate professionals. Additionally, the program provides the Industry Partner Members with the privileges of limited participation in IREM Delaware Valley Chapter activities. Membership is by invitation only.
