What is the “Apartment Party”?
Nope, this is not the party at the end of Apartmentalize. The Apartment Party represents a new political perspective for the rental housing industry, one that transcends individual party affiliation. Regardless of your personal political views, as someone who works in the rental housing industry, it is essential that our industry, speak loudly and with a unified voice. Members of the “Apartment Party” support elected officials who support the industry, whether by cosponsoring favorable housing legislation or consistently meeting with NAA members and local affiliates to discuss our priority issues.

Voting is an integral part of our democracy, and it is important that our industry has its voice heard.
