It's that time of year again for the KREIA election. The Election Committee would like to inform you of the election procedure.

KREIA is run by a board of directors consisting of five officers (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Treasurer Elect), twelve at-large board members, the immediate Past President and the Parliamentarian.

The officer positions serve for a one-year term. While the at-large board members serve for a two-year term, with six new members being elected each year. The only exceptions are when an at-large board member chooses to run for an officer position before his/her two-year term has expired or has to resign prior to the end of his/her two-year term.

Q&A With Ed Gibson: Investor thanks his mentors and pays it forward

Ed Gibson"KREIA is the only organization I know of – and I've been around the world eight times – and I have never, in my life, seen a group of people work so hard to try to make you a millionaire. I’m not kidding you."

Ed Gibson was speaking from experience here, and he believes in paying it forward!

Ed is a longtime KREIA member, a past board member, a past Lunch & Learn host, and a patent-holding engineer. He’s married and has four children and six grandchildren.

He is also one of KREIA's biggest cheerleaders, and he credits his investing success to our group. He’s not a typical real estate investor – he divides his energies between the stock market and real estate, and he makes a great case for why he doesn't like to put all his eggs in one basket.

His take on the synergy of two-prong investing is fascinating, and I sat down with him a couple of months ago to pick his brain – coming away with almost 6,000 words of pure gold.

There wasn't room to fit the full interview in print and, trust me, you’ll want to read the whole thing. In the full transcript Ed talks about how he rehabs houses, he shares his investing strategy, gives specific recommendations, gives shoutouts to his many mentors, and offers solid advice.

If you're a KREIA member currently logged into your account, you can read the full interview here.

National REIA's 1st Quarter UpdateNational REIA's Legislative Update for the first quarter of 2024 takes a look at a recent Harvard study that "has determined that rental markets are cooling after overheating for the last couple years. That the price increases have made more housing unaffordable, since wages didn’t go up as quickly. Which also means more people are being made homeless or in need of more rental assistance. Also, water is wet."

Other items in the Legislative Update include an overview of the housing market, property tax abatement, and water heater rules.

The most recent Download Amnesty Day window happened Monday, May 15th

Did you pay for an online, Zoom-based Saturday workshop a while back, but when you went to download your documents and video replay later from the event page, you found them missing?

Fear not! The files from these KREIA/RMG (Real Estate Mastermind Group) workshops aren't really missing — they've just been packed in cold storage by our web host, who makes a 6-month sweep to save space. The host does allow us to "revive" resources older than 6 months for a 24-hour window.

And we do that occasionally in what are called “Download Amnesty Days.” Watch your email for announcements on when they happen.

But if you’ve discovered you’re missing a workshop and would like us to bump up our schedule on holding an “amnesty day,” please let us know by sending email to support@kreia.com

When we announce an amnesty day, we’re opening up that 24-hour window, and we’ll let you know when it closes.

How to Fetch Your Workshop Documents & Video

Log into your account at kreia.com during the amnesty window, go to the event pages for those workshops you purchased, scroll down to th

"How do I transition into full-time investing?" And more.
