CHAIR'S MESSAGE

I

t's hard to believe that the year is coming to an end. I was cautioned
by many of those before me that my year as chair would be over in the
blink of an eye.
It has been said many times before; it's all about the people! AAA's
volunteers have spent hundreds of hours to put together best in class events.
The passion at AAA is evident in the phenomenal results of our activities.
We collaborate, assist each other in emergencies and support the AAA
mission as if we were family. Being 2017 Chair has been a blessing and honor,
especially in a year of new opportunities for the association.
AAA was the proud host of the largest NAA conference in history this June
with record attendance and volunteers that showed our visitors good ole
Southern Hospitality.
We also launched a new career center allowing more visibility of jobs
postings and candidates that are looking for a job in our industry. This will
also serve as the location for resumes for the many viable candidates that
come through our workforce development initiatives.
Of special note, AAA along with some private donors contributed to the
funding of the Martin Luther King Jr. statue, which now stands in front of
our State Capitol to commemorate the positive changes Dr. King brought to
our nation through his passion for equality.
We moved the needle on our approach to Green Living by promoting
the many benefits that multifamily provides vs. single-family housing.
We offered education sessions on ways to create a higher return by
reducing utility costs. AAA has created a new STAR award to recognize
the accomplishments of energy-saving projects that reduce utility usage.
Our green initiative is housed on the AAA website and provides valuable
taking points of the many benefits that our industry offers to the community.
Our 2018 AAA Chair is Tommy Brunson with Fairfield Residential.
Tommy's quick wit, leadership skills and passion for government affairs will
bring many benefits to AAA.
I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the AAA staff and the work that
goes on behind the scenes. The team is collaborative, passionate and is the
foundation that makes it possible for AAA to be best in class.
See you soon at the S.T.A.R. awards!
With gratitude,
Christie Eash
