1. How do I join NAA?
There are three ways your company can join the National Apartment Association:
1) Join a Local NAA Affiliated Organization
To join NAA, you must first contact a state or local NAA affiliated organization in your area to request a membership application. Once you complete an affiliate application, and submit the required payment, you will automatically become a member of the National Apartment Association. Find the NAA Affiliate nearest to your location: Search and browse.
Your NAA local affiliate provides many membership benefits, such as education courses, informational newsletters and/or magazines, and opportunities for sponsorship, advertising and peer networking. Each NAA local affiliate offers a unique blend of membership services that can include opportunities for career enhancement, volunteer leadership and community involvement.
2) Join NAA as a Direct Member
If no NAA affiliate exists in your state or near your company's location, you can join NAA as a Direct Member.
3) Join as an Affiliated Apartment Association
If your apartment association is not affiliated with NAA, you may be eligible to join NAA as an affiliated apartment association. For more information about affiliate charters, call NAA at 703-518-6141.
