NAA Update from Susan Passmore
NAA Region IV Vice President

We are deep into the 2023 budget season and it’s a perfect time to remind ourselves of the value of membership in our local apartment association. Membership in your local affiliate includes membership in the Apartment Association of North Carolina and the National Apartment Association. Your affiliated associations create a web of advocacy, education, and services at the local, state, and national levels, all working to protect and further our industry. Click and Lease is the industry’s trusted lease compliance platform. Click and Comply software allows property management companies to consolidate processes and systems into one place.

As we near the fourth quarter of the year, it’s trade show and awards season for many affiliates across the state. Just a friendly reminder that you can find all affiliate events in one convenient location on the AANC website event page.

NAA’s Assembly of Delegates registration is open. It will be held November 15-17 in Norfolk, VA. In addition to being the largest business event of the year and the annual gathering of delegates from across the country, Ronda Puryear will be installed as NAA Chair.

On July 13, sent out an email to solicit committee volunteers for 2023 for NAA and NAAEI. Please be sure to submit your application by September 2, 2022. 

We are in a significant election year and NAAPAC has a one-million-dollar goal for 2022. As of July 25, NAAPAC has received approximately $635,000 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. The following is an update on NC affiliates who have met or are nearing their fair share goals.

  • AAWNC, $1,030.00 raised @ 92% of goal
  • PTAA, $10,925.00 raised @ 207% of goal
  • TAA, $6,746.42 raised @ 67% of goal

NAA and NMHC released new apartment demand research. The research shows that the U.S. needs to build 4.3 million more apartments by 2035 to address demand, deficit and affordability, among other key findings. Key takeaways 

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