Event Details

The Georgia Apartment Association Foundation (founded as GAIEF) was formed in 2004 by industry leaders that recognized the need for career promotion as well as an education platform that prepared individuals to enter the apartment industry. While Virginia Tech was the first university to offer specific curriculum focused on Residential Property Management over 25 years ago, very little progress had been made on the national level to develop a formalized recruitment strategy or customized curriculum for managing multifamily communities. The apartment management profession was viewed as a job that one "fell into by chance." Today our industry is recognized as a "career of choice" across the nation, primarily as result of over 14 years of hard work and dedication by Georgia's most visionary leaders forging partnerships with Georgia's educators.  

Through the Peggy Waskom Bowl-a-thon, the Georgia Apartment Association Foundation (GAAF) will raise funds to support the following activities described below:

 

NEW Service Training Academy

Students and "Career Changers" touched by our outreach programs can now enroll in our Service Training Academy, which provides 4 industry certifications at no cost to the student (CAMT, CPO, R410a, EPA). Once these students are trained at our Professional Development Center, they will be turned over to all of our members for potential employment! All of the student's expenses will be covered by the funds raised through this event. 

High Schools

GAAF will work with high schools that have related pathways to promote RPM. Examples include providing teaching materials, subject matter experts and case studies. 

Career Academies

Within the Career Academy Network, GAAF will participate in career expos and guest lectures to provide advisory support, job shadowing opportunities, work based learning, apprenticeships and part-time employment.

Technical Colleges

Target areas include career academies and technical colleges in proximity to GAA affiliate associations, including Chattahoochee Tech, Georgia Piedmont Tech, Athens Tech, Savannah Tech and Columbus Tech.

Four Year Colleges and Universities 

GAAF will support the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech and Kennesaw State University by participating in teaching courses, providing guest lectures, hosting career fairs and special events.

Workforce Development Programs

GAAF will partner with workforce organizations to promote career opportunities. Activities include hosting industry spotlight events and mini-workshops related to skill based training.
