The RETA is an alliance of apartment and technology companies dedicated to promoting collaboration in the industry to support an open technology ecosystem that supports innovation. Through a collaborative volunteer process, the RETA creates and updates resources for the real estate industry.
Through your financial contribution and contribution of your time, you are supporting collaboration in the industry and saving countless hours of time by creating resources that assist with the adoption and integration of new technology and innovative business practices.
The RETA is self-funded and self-governed by RETA members. Through a “one company, one vote” policy, every RETA member gets equal representation. The RETA Governance Committee controls the workflow of the RETA and gives final approval for RETA resources. Subcommittees and workgroups are open to any RETA member.
Representatives from members companies can participate in RETA Workgroups which are formed to reach consensus to create and update industry standards. While several representatives from member companies can participate in a workgroup, a “one company, one vote” rule assures that apartment firms and vendors have and equal voice regardless of their size.
In addition to being self-governed, the RETA is also self-financed. Member dues are solely responsible for supporting this valuable service for the real estate industry. Member dues structure can be found here for more information on current renewal rates.
Most RETA meetings will take place via conference call. There is an annual in-person RETA meeting that takes place at the annual NMHC OPTECH Conference.
