Chicago–The Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) installed its officers for 2009 during the professional association’s fall business and governance meetings recently held in Chicago. Pamela W. Monroe, CPM, will serve as president; O. Randall (Randy) Woodbury, CPM, will serve as president-elect, and Ronald Goss, CPM, will serve as secretary/treasurer.With more than 25 years of professional industry experience, Monroe joined New Jersey-based Community Realty Management (CRM) in 2002 and serves as CRM’s senior vice president. Since beginning her career in Mobile, Ala., she has overseen properties throughout the Southeast, in Texas, Oklahoma, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and the Virgin Islands.  Reflecting on her new position, Monroe says, “Indeed, as more and more distressed properties come on stream, the need for highly skilled professional real estate managers is becoming increasingly apparent. In my view, the challenge for all of us in IREM is to lead in responding to the opportunities our profession has been presented in these troubled times, to respond as effectively as did our forbears some 75 years ago, when they founded IREM in response to the chaotic real estate market conditions that helped to define the Great Depression.”Monroe’s background includes managing all types of multifamily housing – including conventional properties, Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) housing, senior housing, and condominiums.Woodbury is corporate secretary and vice president in charge of property management for the Woodbury Corp. The firm specializes in developing and managing retail, office and hotel properties in the western U.S, mostly for its own portfolio.Woodbury has served IREM on various committees, as a regional vice president and as a member of the executive committee. Goss is senior vice president of RPM Management Co. Inc. He is also senior vice president, director and assistant secretary of RPM Management’s parent company, Rector Phillips Morse Inc.
