NAA Awards Celebration Breakfast with Afdhel Aziz

The NAA Excellence Awards, or Excels, recognize excellence and leadership in the apartment housing industry. These national awards celebrate builders, industry professionals and affiliated apartment associations that make unique contributions to our industry. This year, NAA has added the Rising Star Award for young professionals. NAA will present the Excellence Awards to the recipients during this celebration. 

After the awards, our General Session speaker, Afdhel Aziz will join us for an inspiring talk! Aziz is a leading expert in marketing innovation who worked with Procter & Gamble, Heineken, Absolut and Nokia. Highlighted by Forbes as “one of the top three marketing innovation labs to emulate” in the world, he is currently the Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Conspiracy of Love, a think-tank and idea incubator that helps Fortune 500 brands use culture and technology as a force for good. As the co-author of the book ​“Good is the New Cool: Market Like You Give a Damn,” there is no doubt you will leave the session revved up to make a difference in the world.
