Our goal has been to create a forum for the exchange of ideas pertaining to financial strategies, tenant relations, business management, building maintenance and to keep our members updated on local and national laws, requirements, and concerns related to rental housing. We provide leadership in our area of business and work with local governments on housing related issues, advocating for reasonable regulations.
We especially encourage new and smaller landlords to Join the LATC. Our experienced landlords willingly share advice and information.
In an effort to promote a better and safer community we have created a Code of Ethics that our members agree to follow.
The LATC meets monthly and offers programs and speakers on all aspects of our business. Our Board of Directors also meets for a monthly luncheon to discuss timely issues, choose guest speakers and to keep current on local affairs. Our members receive a monthly mailing of the minutes of the last meeting as well as a more in-depth Newsletter that is published quarterly.
Our meetings are held at the Hotel Ithaca, 222 South Cayuga Street @ 4:30 on the fourth Monday of each month from September through May with the exception of December.
Each spring we also make a donation to a worthy local cause. Recently we have voted to support fire safety and over two years have donated funds to all of the Volunteer Fire Departments in the County as well as the City of Ithaca Fire Department. In conjunction with this we donated more funds, and board member Brian Grout volunteered and built a mock-up dorm room for demonstrations, which we donated to the local fire departments. With so many student-based housing apartments and for the benefit of our other tenants in the area, this mock-up room is set on fire to demonstrate the danger of just how fast a fire grows.
