ARLINGTON, VA | November 10, 2020 – The National Apartment Association (NAA) has announced the winners of the 2020 NAA Best Places to Work award program, which identifies member organizations that encourage employee engagement and performance and foster collaborative and innovative work environments. The award pays tribute to the employees and their hard work, which directly contributes to the success of suppliers, management companies, and the entire rental housing industry.
