Scholarship opportunity by Bill Martin RMP®, NARPM Denver Chapter President-Elect

For those of you either in or beginning the process of attaining your Residential Management Professional designation there is a scholarship opportunity through the Professional Development Committee at NARPM National.

I serve on that committee and this past summer was asked to chair a small group to develop and write a scholarship program in memory of Darryl Kazen a NARPM leader who passed away last year.  Darryl was passionate about leadership, specifically education, even more specifically designations.  Darryl lived his passion as a teacher, a mentor and an auditor.  I met Darryl on a few occasions and found him to be an honest, straightforward and compelling person.

The scholarship program is designed to identify, develop and promote leaders.  It was agreed and decided that the scholarship would be more merit based than need based alone.  There are some requirements that really any current candidate for the RMP designation may already have fulfilled. In addition there will be a requirement to write a 500 word essay on education, leadership and passion.    

A candidate will need a letter of recommendation from the chapter president and will need to have the application submitted by June 30, 2016.  The Professional Development Chair and the Designation Sub Committee Chair will then select the recipient.        

 The scholarship will reimburse the cost of the designation application fee, the cost of the 6 hour courses, and the cost of the convention registration fee totaling about $1,200.

All in all this is part of the path the Professional Development Committee is on with an eye for future leaders not only for chapters but for the national committees as well.  Some examples of the essays are:


"We will continue to be educated all through our life when we learn not just what to think, but how to think"  In your experience please recount a moment in time when you came to understand and see in a very clear way the beginning of change in your thought patterns.


"Great leaders use their power to empower others."  What is your experience of being in the presence of and empowered by a great leader and which of the leadership qualities do you wish to embrace and emulate?"


"It is a powerful force when passion and a career are joined together."  How do you nourish your passion in mind, body and spirit to maintain a balanced life in the demanding profession of property management?"

This Darryl Kazen Memorial Scholarship will be announced shortly on website.
