The Income Property Association of Kern exists to provide knowledge, networking, and resources that assist landlords in operating profitable and ethical rental properties.
IPAK is a member driven trade association that engages in public affairs and government relations on behalf of owners, investors, developers, managers, and suppliers of rental homes and apartment communities.
IPAK is an independent chapter of the California Apartment Association. For more than 75 years, CAA has served owners and managers of rental housing and apartments to become the definitive voice of the single and multifamily housing industry in California.
The first CAA chapter in Kern County was founded in the mid-1980s as the Kern County Apartment Association. It initially focused on networking and government relations. KCAA continued to grow in membership through the 1990s. An organizational change at CAA led to the formation of IPAK in its current form.
Since then, IPAK has become known for its events that provide knowledge and networking opportunities for the local rental housing industry. Regular “Lunch and Learn” events feature community leaders like Sheriff Donny Youngblood, tax experts from the Small Business Development Center, and local vendor experts. Since 2011, IPAK has hosted a popular Fair Housing Seminar in Partnership with the Institute of Real Estate Management.
As a CAA chapter, IPAK offers its members access to many valuable resources. Rental forms and tenant screening make running your business easier, while books and webinars keep you up to date on changing regulations and best practices. Our tireless government advocacy has a proven track record of defeating proposals that threaten the rental housing industry.
IPAK is proud to facilitate the leadership of landlords in our community. For example, during the devastating Erskine Fire of 2016, IPAK members stepped up to provide housing to displaced residents of Kern River Valley. In 2018, IPAK responded to the homelessness crisis by producing the California Landlord’s Summit on Homelessness where landlords pledged over 80 units towards ending chronic homelessness.
