NWCLA Invites You to Join Us At Our Meetings!

You may visit us as a guest for a one time admission cost of $10 dollars. If you decide to join, that $10 dollars may be applied to your annual membership that night or at the next meeting you plan to attend.

MassLandlords was launched in early 2014 following the restructuring of the Worcester Property Owners Association (WPOA) in late 2013. The WPOA was founded originally in the 1940's. MassLandlords is a 501(c)6 trade association with the mission to create better rental housing in Massachusetts. MassLandlords helps owners rent their property and advocates for better laws. To date, nine regional groups like NWCLA have joined MassLandlords.

Code of Ethics fot the NWCLA

The members of NWCLA recognizing our duty to the public and the intimate nature of the relationship between the apartment resident and the owner or manager and being aware of the vastly increasing role of the apartment industry and providing the apartment residing public with the maximum in quality and service upon the highest standard of honesty and integrity, do hereby bind ourselves with the adoption of these Code of Ethics, with each and every member, together and alone, agreeing that so long as we remain members of NWCLA and so long as nothing contained herein shall be unlawful, we shall:

Promote, employ and maintain a high standard of integrity, obligations and services in the operation of all rental housing units. Maintain and operate all rental housing units in accordance with fair and honorable standards of competition, ever mindful of the purposes of NWCLA and in compliance with the articles and by-laws thereof. Strive continually to promote the education and fraternity of the membership and to promote the progress and dignity of the rental housing industry in a better image of itself in order that the public may be better served. Seek to provide better values, so that an even greater share of the public may enjoy the many benefits of the rental housing industry. Establish high ethical standards of conduct with rental agencies, suppliers and others doing business with the rental housing industry. Endeavor to expose all schemes to mislead or defraud the renting public and to aid in the exposure of those responsible. Refrain from attempting to obtain residents, through advertising or otherwise, by means of deceptive, misleading or fraudulent statements, misrepresentations or the use of implications, unwarranted by fact of reasonable probability. Members shall be truthful in representing current and former tenants qualifications to other members.

The power to interpret, administer and endorse the provisions hereof shall be vested in the Board of Directors of the NWCLA with the power of suspension or expulsion, after hearing of any member found violating same, or the spirit hereof.
