The Week Ahead

It’s an exciting a busy week around the Flaherty & Collins Properties offices this week.

If you’re in or around Muncie, be sure to stop by our booth and the Ball State University Cardinal Job Fair on Wednesday, September 16. The Fair runs from 11am-3pm at the Worthen Arena.

Our President, Jerry Collins and Senior Vice President, Jill Herron, were both on campus just last week to help celebrate the grand opening of the Weidner Center, home of the flourishing Residential Property Management (RPM) program. Ball State’s residential property management program began in 1999. Today it is one of only nine such university-based RPM programs in the country, offering undergraduate, graduate and online courses. Plans are underway to offer an introduction to commercial real estate management course in spring 2016.



Also this week, be on the lookout for the F&C Team at the 2015 Midwest Multifamily Conference, running Wednesday and Thursday in downtown Indianapolis. The F&C team should be visible in our retro-inspired Western t-shirts (be sure to check out our slogan). The President’s Dinner concludes the event, with the presentation of Prodigy Awards on Thursday night at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. Several Flaherty & Collins Properties are nominated for numerous awards, so we’ll be there in full force hoping to take home some hardware.


Last, but not least, is the exciting “River Days” – which just concluded this past weekend at The Landing in Mt. Vernon, Ind. River Days celebrates the history and heritage of Mt. Vernon and The Landing was in the middle of the fun, with a gorgeous weekend of celebrating. River Days includes a Children’s Pet Parade, a 5K run/walk, the River Days Parade, an art show, tow boat races and more.
