Thanks to growth and construction and our members’ recruiting efforts, the AMA now has more than 2,000 members and more than 242,000 units in membership! This maintains our position as the fifth largest trade association in the state and one of the 10 largest affiliates of the NAA.
One of our major initiatives for the AMA has been to build a more robust presence in northern Arizona, and we continue to offer more in Tucson for our very active membership. The Flagstaff networking mixer brought together management companies and associate members and there was a buzz of momentum in the room
In Tucson, the popular golf tournament brought out a huge crowd of members. We’ve added a team member in Tucson to support Lauren’s work there. Amanda Perkumas brings a wealth of administrative and business talents to the team.
Once a year, we all gather together for the Annual Tribute Awards Dinner to celebrate those professionals, volunteers and developments that make the multifamily communities shine. I’m excited to see 1,400 faces in this crowd as we celebrate the very best of our industry!
