Frequently Asked Questions
How do I join the association?
If I am a member of AAA, does that make me a member of GAA
If my company joins in the middle of the year, do I still pay the full dues amount?
The membership period is from Jan-December. You can join as a member anytime throughout the year. Your membership will be pro-rated for the upcoming year for the number of months you missed out on in the previous year! For a more detailed breakdown, please email our Membership Department (firstname.lastname@example.org).
How can I get more involved in AAA?
If you haven’t already, we highly suggest that you and any other members of your company come out to our next AAA-101 class! This complimentary class is hosted by our most seasoned veteran members. They explain everything there is to know about AAA and give insight on how to market to key decision-makers in the Apartment Industry. They are also there to answer any questions you may have about membership. Look at our events calendar to find out when the next class is offered, and be sure to register!
Please check out the "Get Involved" section of our website. Here, you will find our Involvement Form- which you must fill out in order to be considered for our Membership Committee. Any questions can be sent to our Membership Department (email@example.com).
When should I expect a new directory?
Our Membership Directories are printed and sent out annually in September! If you did not receive a copy, please contact our Membership Department so we can verify your company address and the primary contact who would have received your company’s copy!
I applied for membership, when will I receive confirmation that I have been approved?
Thank you for applying for membership! If your payment has been processed you are unofficially considered a member, meaning you will have user access and be able to register for events. Your company will officially be approved as a member at our next board meeting (The board meets every month except for in June & August). After approval, you will receive a New Members Packet in the mail which will include a current copy of our Membership Directory and other helpful information to get you rolling! We also encourage you to head over to our events calendar and search for our next AAA 101 class.
What is my Membership ID?
We actually do not have Membership IDs. If someone needs confirmation of your membership, our Membership Department will be happy to help! Please email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
