IREM's professional development seminar visits Houston.

The Institute's successful professional development seminar, Real Estate Portfolio Management, held in New York and California last year, will make its way to Houston for a two-day session at the Hyatt Regency on March 25-26. The program is designed for managers who work directly with portfolio or asset management issues or who interact with portfolio managers. The seminar provides an in-depth introduction to real estate portfolio management that combines academic theory with real world examples. Co-sponsored with the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Business's Center for Urban Land Economics Research, the seminar begins by differentiating between the different functions and objectives of property management, asset management and portfolio management. Attendees will also be given an introduction to portfolio theory, with an emphasis on developing intuition and understanding of theory and learning terminology.

Instructor Timothy Riddiough is the E.J. Plesko Professor of Real Estate at Wisconsin and is widely published. His research interests include financial intermediation and debt contracting, investment theory, option pricing, law and economy and regulation--all as they apply to real estate.

This seminar earns two elective credits toward the Institute's CPM designation, credit as an elective course toward the University of Wisconsin's Real Estate Certificate Program and one continuing education unit for each 10 classroom hours awarded by Wisconsin's Center for Urban Land Economics Research, 1.4 units.

IREM members can take advantage of a discounted registration fee ($715); the cost for non-members is $895. For more information, visit www.irem.org.
