NAA Education Conference and Expo
Check out our Charity of the Year!
Often times displaced Residents are placed into a vacant apartment home or even in the clubhouse until a plan is devised for the next steps. Hatching Hope will be providing air mattresses, comfy bedding, and much needed supplies for that first night or two following a disaster. We will also have special focus on children by providing hand made blankets from local churches and schools and a book or coloring books to keep them focused on the good things! Each and every dollar will be used to build awesome care kits for these victims. And you can actually sponsor someone for $30! This will provide a victim with a air mattress, comfy bedding, and much needed toiletries. There is no greater feeling than that of helping others. Join us in this effort to make a difference across the state of Alabama! As always, we graciously accept your gift of time, so feel free to email Keli @ email@example.com to see how you can help today! Find us on Facebook: Hatching Hope

SHOUT OUT TO THE MONTGOMERY CONNECTION TEAM
I just want to share with everyone how My amazing staff at The Montgomery Connection has gone over and beyond the normal call of duty! I am blessed to have such a great Team! They have improved the overall appearance of the property. They have been working late into the night, both the office staff and maintenance staff without complaining to help increase occupancy and decrease delinquency! Working 7 days a week!!!! In Oct/Nov the delinquency at one of our assets was hovering at a whooping 70% delinquent at the highest and 45% at the lowest and occupancy was bottoming out at a low 84%, and in a few short months with tenacity, determination, hard work, and battle, they've turned things around and is rocking it out at an occupancy of 94% and trending upwards of 97% and has slayed delinquency down to ONLY 2.23%. What a turn around!
I just want to say Thank you to the hardest working property management Team in the Land!!!!!!

About the River Region Apartment Association
In 1972, a group of Montgomery apartment industry professionals met and formed The Montgomery Apartment Managers’ Association. Since 1972, this association has grown and transformed into what is now known as The River Region Apartment Association and includes twenty-five counties in south-central Alabama. The River Region Apartment Association is a non-profit trade association dedicated to unifying apartment industry professionals through education, legislative advocacy and member services. RRAA members are rental housing owners, property management firms, apartment communities and companies that supply products or services to rental properties.
RRAA provides educational opportunities each year such as legal seminars, leasing seminars, and annual fair housing training. Much thought and planning has been put into annual events such as the Beautification Awards, Maintenance Mania and the River Region Awards in order to recognize our industry professionals and to allow industry professionals an opportunity to network. The Association communicates to the members through a monthly newsletter, The RRAA Insider, and the RRAA website has a fresh and informative look to provide members with local, state and national apartment industry information.
As always, a membership in the River Region Apartment Association makes you a member of the Alabama Apartment Association and the National Apartment Association.
