The benefits of membership are far-reaching and vary from company to company. However, our industry's primary needs are paramount to us and we believe in these:
With 400 companies that own or manage over 330,000 apartment homes in the Metro Atlanta area, we are the voice for the multifamily industry in Atlanta. Our legislative team has a strong presence at the local, state and national level, and our education classes are some of the best in the industry and have been nationally recognized.
Our Associate/Supplier members represent over 1200 companies that specialize in doing business with the apartment industry, and by joining our organization have shown a commitment to our members and our efforts.
See what one of our Owner/Manager members says about the power of AAA membership & involvement:
"Until I became involved with AAA about 8 years ago, I didn’t appreciate the numerous benefits of being an active member of the association. Benefits that have added value to our company, staff and our culture. AAA has a dedicated and extremely effective Government Affairs department that is constantly fighting for the rights of the members by building relationships with legislators, being active in potential new laws that arise, and overall making sure the industry has a voice. Not to mention the first-class Education opportunities that AAA offers, which are updated monthly based on the needs of the members. The public relations committee is always looking for ways to promote the apartment industry by sharing the positive impact that the apartment industry brings the community. One great example would be the Annual AAA Food Drive, which partnering with the Atlanta Community Food Bank, has become the largest food drive in the world! Results that could only be achieved by having passionate and involved members. There are many ways to get involved within the AAA, whether on one of the many productive committees, being a part of the board of directors or participating with educational events. I cannot imagine a time where AMLI wouldn’t be involved with the Atlanta Apartment Association."
~ Christie Eash 2017 AAA Chair, Senior Vice President, AMLI Residential

Many of our Associate Members are our best advertisement, see what they say below about their decision to become an AAA member:
"I am happy to give of my time and resources to AAA because, unlike many Associations, this one yields a return on investment. As a company, the Association has enabled my company to strengthen existing business relationships while forging new ones through the many networking opportunities available to all members. Information is power, and my membership in AAA has been the key to me being able to better serve my customer base as the Association keeps me informed about market trends and conditions that affect our industry."
~ Dana Hill Publisher, For Rent Media Solutions
“Joining the Atlanta Apartment Association was a very smart business move and one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my business. I have been afforded the opportunity to meet and network with the upper echelon of the multi-family industry as well as forge relationships that I am grateful for in and out of business."
~ Brian Sutherlin Owner, Sutherlin's Pressure, and Cleaning
