Matthew Haines, chair of the NAA IRO committee, agreed with Ulep’s outlook. “IROs in particular have felt lingering pandemic challenges,” said Haines. “NAA is honored to join forces with Yardi Breeze to ensure this important segment of the industry has access to education and networking opportunities that will help chart their course forward.”
