NICIA Members,

I would like to thank you for your participation in this past NICIA meeting where we had a very lively and informative meeting around land lording.  We had a great panel of landlords who shared their wisdom and gave us tips on navigating some of the mine fields that are part of “doing business.”

We also held our annual elections where the new 2012-2013 board was elected.  I would like to thank the outgoing board members for their great work this past year in moving the association forward and creating some great opportunities for member growth and education. Specifically, I would like to thank Mark Poland for his work as Program Manager and Jon Krumm for his work as Treasurer.

The newly elected board members are as follows;

  • Greg O’Donnell; President
  • Alicia Ortiz; Vice President
  • Milt Petersen; Treasurer
  • Teri Lynn Hamilton; Secretary
  • Mike Breaz; Program Director
  • Barb Poland; Membership
  • Dale Adams; Advertising
  • Joe Peterson; Legislative
  • Dave Shepherd; Newsletter

The Board is excited about the upcoming year and have already started planning out some great meetings as well as ways to continuing to grow our association into one of the best REIAs in the area.

We look forward to working with all members and would appreciate any ideas or comments you might have to build our organization stronger and to bring quality speakers and resources into the group. Contact any board member if you have something to share.  You can find our email addresses on our website at NICIA.org under the ‘About Us’ menu.

Thank you for your support and we will see you on May 12th for our annual Vendor fair at Brookestone Estates from 8 am to 12:00 pm including lunch and networking.


Greg O’Donnell

President; Northwest Indiana Creative Investors Association
