Know Your Values, Know your Boundaries.

When we have clarity in what is most important to us and who we are, we can make choices that support our best life and balance. Join goal coach and leadership consultant, Jacki Carr for a Power Lunch workshop on core values alignment and boundary setting. Be prepared to connect with your community, evaluate your own calendar, and align your values to your language and day to day life.

What you will walk away with:

  • A guided exercise to define your Top 5 Core Values.
  • Open conversation on boundary setting and the power of your no.
  • Values as the guiding principles to work, life, balance.

Power Lunch Sponsorship

Have you attended one of IAA’s Power Lunches yet? One great way to introduce yourself and your company is to not only attend a Power Lunch, but sponsor the event for optimal exposure!

There are 3 different Power Lunches each year, and these events give Associate Members a chance to showcase products or services in a relaxed, informal social gathering. The majority of attendees at these events are members you might do business with currently, or would like to do business with in the future. Either way, you build relationships with those in the multifamily industry and show your support by sponsoring the event. The “Members Buy From Members” program supports our philosophy there is strength in numbers, and many of our Direct members understand the value of utilizing our Associates for their business needs.

Benefits of sponsoring a Power Lunch:

  • Networking with IAA Board of Directors at the VIP Table
  • Chance to speak in front of 130+ industry members and introduce your product/service
  • Your company logo will be used on all promotional flyers and email blasts – all eblasts will include a live link to your website

  • Your company will be listed as a Sponsor in INsites Magazine
  • Your sponsorship will also be listed on IAA’s website calendar with a link to your website
  • You will receive (2) complimentary registrations to the Power Lunch

Bowling for Rebuilding Lives

Thank you to everyone who made Bowling for Rebuilding Lives on February 21 a success. Click here to see photos from the event on the IAA Facebook.

Rebuilding Lives was founded in 2009, after a year of severe weather throughout Indiana brought devastation to our management companies, our apartment communities and our residents. The Indiana Apartment Association decided to focus a part of its philanthropic efforts on raising funds to assist our industry in times of need. Our mission statement is as follows:

Rebuilding Lives supports members of the Indiana Apartment Association throughout the state of Indiana by providing assistance to residents who have been affected by natural disasters.

A portion of the 2018 proceeds are being donated to the Ronald McDonald House to help those families who are rebuilding their lives as they battle a childhood illness.

Save the date for February 13, 2019, for the next Bowling for Rebuilding Lives fundraiser!

Thank you to our 2018 Sponsors:

This energizing day is dedicated to the hardworking maintenance staff in the multifamily industry.

The PAC Golf Classic is a fundraising event hosted by the Indiana Apartment Association to benefit the Indiana Multifamily Housing Political Action Committee (IMFHPAC). The IMFHPAC is the apartment industry’s Political Action Committee (PAC). The PAC is used to support candidates for local and state offices who demonstrate a pro business approach to government and are considered supportive of particular apartment industry positions. The IMFHPAC strengthens the apartment industry’s overall legislative effectiveness. These efforts have helped members save thousands of dollars by defeating unnecessary industry regulations. IAA continues to be the ONLY organization lobbying on behalf of the apartment industry. Supporting the PAC is a way for all companies to keep the lobbying efforts of IAA strong. Even for non-golfers, there are sponsorship opportunities available. For further information contact 317-816-8900. All Proceeds benefit the IMFHPAC.

The 2018 PAC Golf Classic will be on Thursday, June 7, 2018 at the Eagle Creek Golf Course.

 Reverse Trade Show


This event raises money for the National Apartment Association Political Action Committee. This fundraiser is a highly effective business networking event that allows you the opportunity to meet one on one with owners and decision makers from property management companies. Vendors have the opportunity to have immediate contact with buyers on both the management and development/construction aspect of management companies representing more than 100,000 units across the state.

While the proceeds from the event benefit the National Apartment Association Political Action Committee, a portion of the money will come back to the Indiana Multi Family Housing Political Action Committee to spend on Indiana Members of Congress.

IMFHPAC is IAA’s nonpartisan political action committee that invests in candidates who are supportive of industry issues and are pro-business legislators. These funds aid in the election of candidates whose legislative voting records and/or positions on multifamily issues will enhance the business climate in Indiana. The IMFHPAC enables corporations and individuals to pool their political contributions and support candidates which help further IAA’s legislative objectives. A collective effort allows for visibility and access to candidates.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2018 Reverse Trade Show a success!
