The Austin Apartment Association has a number of committees that keep the association vibrant, relevant and involved. Find your passion and get involved today!
The Advocacy Committee monitors all branches of government in the 11-county AAA service area to identify issues and policy actions that impact the rental housing community. As the focal point for deliberations on AAA's public policy agenda, the committee discusses trending local issues and policies that affect rental housing providers and industry and proposes actions and official industry positions on important topics. Federal and state issues and topics are also monitored and discussed.
