Advocating to impact our legislative future
By Amy Smith Montoya, AMA Board Chair, Bella Investments
This year’s National Apartment Association’s Advocate conference focused on some of the key issues impacting our sector at the local and national levels. Housing, affordability, cybersecurity, insurance and infrastructure impact every company involved with the AMA.
We are fortunate to have a powerful lobbying team at the national level, but our local voices – the meetings with our representatives where we can share impactful stories from the business owners’ perspective - are critical to the success and influence of that voice.
These visits help us build relationships and educate our policymakers and their staffs about key issues. I hope more of us will engage locally and nationally.
Advancing technology to improve our communication future
This month, we are migrating our Apartment News magazine into a digital platform. Your Board has prioritized technology use as a way to build stronger connections to our members. This move to a digital publication will allow us to share more content with more users. Now every member, and their teams, can access the publication and sign up for direct delivery. Over time, it will also allow more of our members to share their news, business innovations and leadership ideas, as well as connect to the AMA’s programs!
Celebrating leaders who take us into the future
This issue focuses on the Tribute Award finalists for 2018. We will celebrate all the nominees at our upcoming Tributes dinner. Tributes takes our in-house recognition programs to the next level by sharing the success of our team members with the association as a whole. If you have a finalist included in this year’s honorees, be sure to share this edition with the rest of your company and start celebrating leadership at your company today!
