CHICAGO-”Institute of Real Estate Management Day” in this city has been proclaimed by Mayor Richard M. Daley. IREM celebrated its 70th anniversary June 12.

The international organization that educates and certifies property managers has 86 chapters, including the 33-year-old Chicago group that has 600 members.
