Who is the Triangle Apartment Association(TAA)?

Here is the thumbnail sketch that they provide about themselves:

The Triangle Apartment Association is a non-profit trade association serving the multifamily rental housing industry. Our members are comprised of individuals and companies who develop, own, manage, and provide goods and services to the apartment industry in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area.

The TAA focuses its efforts in the following four areas:

 serving the rental housing industry by providing education for professional development

 protecting the interests of rental housing providers through legislative advocacy

 fostering business partnerships, and

 participating in the betterment of the Triangle and surrounding communities

TAA At a Glance

 Founded: 1984
 Member Companies: 825
 Apartment Communities: 406
 Management Companies: 119
 Independent Rental Owners: 57
 Vendor/Suppliers: 243
 Total Member Dwellings: 97,435
 Resident Population: 194,870

Now I am going to put in my two cents about the TAA:

The TAA is a great group of people work hard to make your life as a property owner easier! They have many educational opportunities to keep you up to date and out of trouble, and they are active both politically and legislatively. They are politically active through their Political Action Committee and they both keep on top of, and work to help shape, local regulations. The TAA is active legislatively through their parent organization the Apartment Association of North Carolina (in which you automatically are eligible for membership if you join the TAA). The legislation they sponsor greatly assists property owners of all sizes! CherylAnn Houseman is the Government Affairs Director at the TAA and she is a great person and a great resource for you, the property owner.

Also, Valli Gibson, the Member Services Coordinator, is very helpful on all of your day to day membership needs. Everyone at the TAA is great, these two women are the ones that I work with most often.

One other quick point, the TAA is there for you if you are a large property owner or if you have just one unit. If you are on the smaller side there is a sub-group called IROC or the Individual Rental Owners Committee, focused on the interests specific to smaller owners.

I cannot say enough good things about these people or this organization. If you are unfamiliar with them go to event on Wednesday and their website at http://www.triangleaptassn.org/displaycommon.cfm?an=1.
