IREM Chicago’s Premier Awards and Casino Night was held at Chicago’s historic Drake Hotel and drew more than 230 chapter members, industry partners and guests for an evening of food and beverage, casino games, camaraderie, and of course, recognition for the winners in six Premier Awards categories. IREM 2018 national president Donald Wilkerson, CPM® and 2016 IREM Chicago president Brian Lozell, CPM®, served as co-hosts.
The Premier Awards were created to recognize people, organizations and companies for excellence in areas that include innovation and technology, energy conservation, community involvement and leadership, property management, vendor services and embodying the core principles of the ARM® and CPM® credentials.
