Why Should You Participate in Lobby Day? Get real member advice!
The above is a group picture of some of the Burkely Communities' team members who participated in the 2018 Lobby Day.
"I have attended AANC’s Lobby Day for the last two years. It is an incredible opportunity to network with other industry professionals, earn continuing education credits, and learn about pressing legislative items for our industry. Further, once becoming educated on these topics, teams of property management professionals then go to the North Carolina State Legislative Building to meet with our state representatives and senators to discuss these important issues and ensure that our industry’s interests are considered when enacting new legislation. Learning about legislation impactful to our industry and interacting with our elected officials makes AANC Education & Legislative Conference a can’t miss!" Pete Cato, CAPS, (Community Manager, Burkely Student Communities, Greensboro, NC)
"I cannot tell you how it makes me feel to see and hear the eager anticipation of my team whenever they begin to get information about the AANC Conference. As soon as a team member left his first AANC Conference, the first words out of his mouth were, “I want to come back next year!” This team member did not say much during Lobby Day the first year, rather he watched and learned. By his second year he was taking the lead with almost every legislator that we saw. Seeing people learn and start to understand that they truly have a voice about what happens in their industry is very gratifying and one of the best things about Lobby Day." - Jody Longwill (Vice President of Operations, Burkely Communities)
