Update from Susan Passmore
NAA Region IV Vice President

It’s hard to believe that we are almost halfway through 2022. If you’ve been around “a minute” (as they say), you know the “dog days” of summer are coming, followed by budget season! 

As we head into summer, let’s remember that this is a significant election year, and our industry needs to be aggressive in its fundraising and support of those who are supportive of our initiatives. NAAPAC has a one-million-dollar goal for 2022. NAA has prepared a quick 2-minute video on why PAC participation is important. NAAPAC has received approximately $365,000 in contributions, which is on track for the $1 million goal. Please consider making an investment in NAAPAC if you have not already done so.

Apartmentalize is back in full force June 22-24 in San Diego with more than 100 sessions and 500+ exhibitors, from Maintenance Mania National Championship and the 2-blocks-long Friday Night Party in the Gaslamp Quarter. Don’t forget to drop in at the NAAHQ booth for swag, demos, and a chance to win big when you spin the prize wheel. Registration is still available. 

There are currently two NAA Diversity, Equity and Inclusion opportunities open to applications through July 29th. Applications are currently being accepted for the Alexandra Jackiw Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Scholarship for members of a racial/ethnic minority group, LGBTQ, people with a disability or a former/serving member of the military. Or if you have an innovative idea about diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace, then apply for the Innovation in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (IDEI) Grant.

RPM Careers Week is back! From July 18-22, join NAA in celebrating our community members and raising awareness about career opportunities in the residential property management industry. As part of this week, NAA will be celebrating our vital onsite teams with Apartment Onsite Teams Day on Wednesday, July 20. The event toolkit includes numerous collateral materials to help in celebrating our amazing industry. 

If I can ever be of assistance to you or your association, feel free to reach out.
