These meetings are the heart and soul of AZREIA. Chapter meeting are held monthly in Phoenix, Tucson and Prescott. Every month you have the opportunity to attend a workshop, receive an in depth market update presentation, network with your fellow Investors and our Business Associates..plus…hear a guest speaker. There is ample time set aside for networking. Many of our Business Associates elect to participate in a “trade show” like forum and host a table. This makes it easy for you to identify the business and experts you need to discuss your issues with and craft a solution. There is a community table where members can put flyers for properties they own or control and wish to sell.
The general session includes a guest speaker that is an expert in a specific area of real estate investing. Come early and learn from experts on a specific topic in our 5:15pm workshop.
