Synergism: the total effect is greater than the sum of the individual effects1
Active and enthusiastic membership is the key to any effective business association. TheHouston Apartment Association (HAA) and other apartment associations across the state of Texas are comprised of diverse professionals in the rental home industry who collectively work towards the promotion of fair legislation, equal housing, ethical behavior, best practices and quality leadership for the common benefit of all members and the apartment industry as a whole.
In Houston and the surrounding area, HAA is the leading advocate, resource and community partner for quality rental housing providers. TheTexas Apartment Association(TAA) is a non-profit statewide trade association that provides advocacy, education, and communication for the Texas rental housing industry across the state. These advocate organizations serve all types of rental professionals, including property owners, builders, developers, property management firms and a multitude of service providers that service the rental housing industry.
In Houston, the Go Getters Club is a group of active and energized volunteers who recruit companies, groups and individuals to join the Houston Apartment Association and by extension, the Texas Apartment Association.
All Things Are Bigger in Texas
All things are bigger in Texas. And, so is the Go Getter trophy (see photo). The trophy is awarded each month to the HAA Go Getter membership team that recruits the most new memberships in the Houston Apartment Association. Each recipient winning team is encouraged to “embellish” with it’s own creative touches. Shiny, big and gawdy is highly encouraged. The award is then handed on to the next winning team who attempts to take the award to even gaudier heights. All in good fun. There are also more distinguished awards bestowed upon those who reach certain levels of recruitment including in ascending order: lapel pins, blazer patches, honorary blazers, HAA Honorary Life Member award, and the Texas Apartment Association (TAA) Shining Star Award.
Terri Clifton, President of Better World Properties LLC is an enthusiast of making it a better world in the apartment industry. As an enthusiastic Go Getter with the Houston Apartment Association, Terri is the first and second quarter leader in new recruits for HAA and her team of Better Getters currently holds the Better Getter trophy (put sunglasses on and view photo above).
Apartment owners, REITs, apartment industry service providers, apartment developers, lenders, rental professionals and construction companies that service the apartment industry in Texas can all benefit by becoming involved and active members in these organizations. Not only do these associations collectively create a better world for all in the apartment industry, members can also find a rich business network where beneficial connections and lifelong friends are made.
