Networking. Its a word that sends many people running in the other direction, but talk to someone who has been involved in our association and they will be quick to point out that you may join for the Government Affairs or the Educational programing, but its the networking opportunities that the experienced association member values the most. (This is where you should watch the video to the left.)
From time to time in business we all face situations we aren't sure how to handle or want someone elses advise on. You need that outside perspective. You need that opportunity to look at your businesses from the outside. As a member of VAMA you now have that opportunity.
With monthly networking events there are multiple opportunities for you to get to know other industry professionals. Whether its a morning coffee where you do your best networking, or after work during happy hour. We have events tailored to meet specific networking needs.
The enhanced perspective doesn't stop with member networking however. Our staff is here to assist as well. Whether it's assisting with general Virginia Residential Landlord Tenant operational questions or walking you through the though process of granting reasonable accommodation request. Our staff knows not only how apartment professionals look at the issue, but also how to pull you outside of the issue so you can approach it with an open mind, evaluating all of the possibilities.
Membership has its advantages and the more you know, the better your communities perform.
