As the situation surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to evolve, the Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles and the producer of the Income Property Management Expo & Maintenance Mania has been committed to working closely with the City of Pasadena Public Health Department, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and we have been monitoring guidance being communicated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.[AS OF March 19] The City of Pasadena, along with cities throughout Los Angeles County, have issued a Safer at Home Order to combat the spread of COVID-19. The Order requires residents to stay in their residences and limit movement outside their homes as much as possible. It prohibits public and private events of 10 or more people, and requires the closure of malls, shopping centers, children’s playgrounds, and non-essential retail businesses to slow the spread of COVID-19 within the community. The order does not prohibit outdoor activities such as hiking, walking, and shopping at essential businesses-including grocery stores and restaurants-so long as all persons practice social distancing to the extent practicable.
As a result, we are postponing the March 24th Income Property Management Expo until Wednesday, October 7th. The Expo at that time will again take place at the Pasadena Convention Center. In addition, Maintenance Mania will be cancelled until further notice. Additional information regarding the event will be made available as soon as possible.
According to AAGLA Executive Director, Daniel Yukelson: “As I am sure you are aware, our community is now facing a very challenging issue of large scale and importance. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is affecting all of us and our families. The Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles is always here to support you in any way that we can to ensure the viability of our member’s businesses, and we hope for the health and safety of all members and every member of our community. While we all navigate our way through this apparent unchartered health crisis, we feel it is incredibly necessary to postpone our Income Property Expo and Maintenance Mania event.”
The well-being of our members, community, visitors and guests is of utmost importance to all of us, and we are committed to doing everything we can to support and respond to this current situation. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this unprecedented time.
