NAA News,
NAA Update from Susan Passmore
NAA Region IV Vice President

We are fresh out of NAA’s biggest business meeting of the year, the Assembly of Delegates, which was held in Norfolk, Virginia, on November 16 and 17. At that meeting, committees had their final meetings of the year, delegates approved several minor bylaw changes, and voted in favor of the 2023 slate of officers, which sees Ronda Puryear, with Management Services Corporation, move to NAA Chair. Members in attendance enjoyed the installation ceremony alongside magnificent food and fellowship.

Region 4 elected Martha Dryden, with AU Associates, to fill the unexpired term of Kelli Lea as Kelli moves to serve as the National Apartment Association Education Institute’s Vice President position in 2023. The NAA Board approved the 2023 budget. The budget includes multiple investments in the Click and Lease product.
