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

NAA held a very successful Advocate lobby day event in March. At that event, affiliates traveled to Capitol Hill and met with their congressional representatives and discussed industry related issues. During the governance portion of the conference, the NAA Board also met to review the 2022 audit report and approve a Housing Affordability Program Affiliate Assistance request for the Washington Multi-Housing Council.

Apartmentalize is in Atlanta June 7-9, with committee/governance meetings being held beforehand on June 5 and June 6. If you have not yet registered, you will have the option to do so onsite!
