I am proud to be an activate member of IAA. The courteous & professional service IAA provides along with the educational seminars and networking with my peers, helps me succeed as a property manager.
Lisa Turner, Property Manager, Autumn Ridge Apartments
I have been in the apartment industry since 2008 and loved it the moment I started. The IAA is as strong as its members, so it is always great to recruit and meet new members. I am a firm believer in networking; getting to know, like, and trust others. On top of the networking opportunities, the IAA offers exceptional and important classes.
Alissa Morlan, Regional Manager, Chair, IAA: Lafayette, HI Management
As a team, we felt like we were a little slow in terms of how long it took us to join IAA, but looking back are so glad we did. It was one of the best decisions we made not just because it put us in front of our target audience on a monthly basis, but because we have been able give back and be active members of the industry. Sitting on committees, attending events / meetings, and diving in to serve and make an impact where we can has been so rewarding for all of us.
