NAA Today: Friday, June 20, 2014 Edition

What a fantastic first day at the 2014 NAA Education Conference & Exposition! Opening General Session speaker Michael J. Fox used his characteristic wit and charm to deliver a speech that was equally inspirational and amusing. Our takeaway message from Fox: Real learning and growth actually happens when life goes skidding sideways.

It's a lesson we can all apply to our work in the apartment industry.

On a day that brought attendees a beloved actor, author and advocate, to an exhibit hall that broke all previous records; from attendees to exhibitors; and a festival-themed opening party full of Colorado's finest, Denver was definitely the place to be for reaching new heights. Today is no different. There's more in store as attendees continue to celebrate NAA's 75th Anniversary and Reach New Heights. After HGTV Co-founder and Former Chief Operating Officer Susan Packard entertains and inspires attendees bright and early, ABC's hit TV show Shark Tank personalities Barbara Corcoran and Kevin Harrington will critique investment pitches from some of NAA's very own members and offer a huge prize to one lucky entrepreneur.
