Five Ways To Get Involved Anytime, Anywhere.
Advocacy is standing up and sharing your story for the rental housing industry. Having your voice heard is not only important to the industry’s success, it’s easier than you may think! NAA has created five simple ways to get involved.
1. Advocacy365 Action Center: Connect with Lawmakers
Visit the Action Center where NAA connects you with your legislators and is the hub of all NAA Advocacy365 grassroots advocacy. Stay informed and up-to-date on current legislation and policies affecting your business.
2. Key Contact Program: Be a Resource for Your Legislator
Tell NAA who you know. The online Key Contact interview helps to identify relationships between industry experts like you and legislators whose decisions directly impact your business. The closer the relationship, the higher the likelihood we can make a difference when issues arise that affect the industry.
3. Be a Thought Leader: Share Your Story on Key Issues
Learn how to craft an effective story that humanizes policy issues and makes a lasting impact with policy makers. If you'd like to share your story, please contact Seth Turner.

4. Property Tours: Welcome a Legislator to Your Property
Invite legislators and local officials for a tour and show them what goes into operating an apartment community. Exposing your elected officials to the people, places and businesses that their legislation impacts is the best way to build a lasting and meaningful relationship. If you are interested in and need further information about inviting a legislator to your property, please contact Jim Wilson.
