We want YOU! Serve on a committee to make a difference.
SAAA relies heavily on volunteer leaders from all walks of the apartment industry to execute its annual events and ensure the continued success of the organization. Committee volunteer opportunities provide SAAA members with valuable network channels, meaningful relationships with peers, and insight to the local multi-family and rental housing market.
All SAAA members are invited to volunteer on the committee (or committees!) that best suits their talents and interests. Typically, the committees listed below meet on a monthly basis at SAAA. Unless otherwise noted, committee meetings are open to all SAAA members. If you would like to discuss your talents and how they could be best utilized at SAAA or if you would like to sign up to volunteer, please contact the SAAA staff liaison listed underneath the committee description!
