At this virtual meeting MassLandlords staff will review the dues increase scheduled for November 15. Existing and renewing members will be given instructions on grandfathering in your current dues price.
MassLandlords membership now comes with 14 valuable benefits. We're helping so much we'll be increasing dues to make more resources available for our mission, especially improving the laws. On November 15, we will be switching from dues "per person" to "per unit owned and managed." All 2,360 members are eligible to be grandfathered into the old pricing:
Old pricing available before November 15: ~$100 per year.
If you are not on credit card autorenew by Nov 15: ~$225 per year + up to $6 per unit.
This is the first dues change since we restructured. The new schedule has been set by the Board of Directors. A hardship waiver will be available if dues are unaffordable. Members on autorenew will be grandfathered in indefinitely provided autorenew succeeds each rebill.
This event will present:
- MassLandlords financials, membership growth, and forecast needs.
- The "price per unit" dues schedule and regional scale factors.
- A demo of the new join page.
- Step by step instructions to receive grandfathered pricing.
Attendees will leave having learned how to grandfather their current price, why dues are changing, and where to go to make dues pay for themselves. (If you intend to follow along and grandfather your price live at the event, please verify that you know your username and password and can log into the site before the event starts. We will not troubleshoot individual logins at the event.)
This presentation will be given by Doug Quattrochi, Executive Director, MassLandlords, Inc. Doug was a founding member of MassLandlords in 2013. He became the association's first Executive Director under new bylaws in 2014. Since then, he has scaled the organization from a core of 160 members in Worcester to approximately 2,200 dues paying businesses from Pittsfield to the Cape, and from an all-volunteer team to approximately 20 full and part-time staff plus 50 volunteers. Doug has been instrumental in advancing democratic governance mechanisms, including score voting for policy priorities and a staggered and democratically elected Board of Directors. Doug also oversees the RentHelper spin-off, which is expanding access to electronic banking for those of us who are unbanked or underbanked. Prior to MassLandlords, Doug held leadership roles in various Massachusetts startups, two of which are still operating. Doug holds a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Networking time will be moderated by Patrick Sullivan. Patrick has been an avid landlord since 2007 primarily focusing on multi families in the greater Worcester area. Having worked in high level IT his whole life he looks at things from a different perspective which he applies to real estate. He became a Real Estate agent in 2015 and now primarily focuses on Sober living facilities for people recently out of drug and alcohol treatment centers.
