2016 Is Flying By...
Summer Is Here!
ongratulations to everyone for making it through Atlanta pollen
season once again! It is a necessary rite of passage from spring
into summer for all of us. And as we head into summer, your
Atlanta Apartment Association will be as busy as ever.
We have just wrapped up our annual Membership Campaign with
very successful results. I want to send out a huge thank you to our staff
and committee for all of their hard work and dedication. We would not
be a successful association without our members and volunteers!
Your Government Affairs team and several board members participated in the
NAA Capital Conference in Washington, D.C. We were able to meet with many
congressional delegations to discuss items important to us in the multifamily
housing industry. The highlight of the trip was meeting with Senator Johnny
Isakson who has been a friend to the industry for many years. Issues discussed
this year included future funding of workforce housing programs, pending
expiration of federal flood insurance programs and litigation associated with
Fair Housing/ADA concerns. It was a packed day on the hill but we were lucky
enough to have a spectacular sunny 70-degree day in D.C. Thanks to all who
participated, and we hope to see many more of you participate in the coming year.
Make sure you have your calendars updated as we have many upcoming
events you won't want to miss. The Trade Show is fast approaching
on May 18 from 1 to 6:30 p.m. Free pre-registration is open on the
AAA website for owner/manager members. We are looking forward to
another sold-out show this year. You won't want to miss it.
This year's NAA Education Conference is in San Francisco on
June 15-18. This conference is the largest annual meeting of multifamily
professionals and offers some of the very best industry education available.
We hope to see many of you there taking advantage of opportunities to
improve your knowledge about apartment leasing and management and
to strengthen relationships, make new friends and have a great time.
Following behind the trade show, is the Food-a-Thon Kickoff Event on June 22
at the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Every year we push to break our previous
year's total as we strive to help those less fortunate in our communities. For 2015,
we were able to provide over 7.3 million meals. We are thrilled to have Chris Burns
and Virginia Love chairing our
committee this year. If you are
interested in being a sponsor, please
reach out to them or our AAA staff.
The Peggy Waskom Super Bowl
will take place on July 14 this year.
In Peggy's honor, this event benefits
the Georgia Apartment Industry
Education Foundation, an organization
that promotes, educates and trains
individuals to enter our industry.
This organization is now operating
out of our AAA offices and we
couldn't be happier. You won't want
to miss this worthy and fun event.
And last but certainly not least, is
our next Dinner Meeting on July 28
with hypnotist Rodney Rash. Take
advantage of our Reverse Trade
Show ahead of the dinner meeting
where our associate members have
an opportunity to get in front of our
owner/managers. Always a fun time.
It is going to be a busy summer,
and I hope to see all of you at our
upcoming events. Thanks for all
that you do for our association.
