Why Nominate?

Nominations close on September 25th, 2019.

2019 Individual Awards (2 new categories)

Categories include:
  • Community Manager of The Year
  • Assistant Manager of The Year
  • Maintenance Supervisor of The Year
  • Maintenance Technician of The Year
  • Leasing Professional of The Year (this category will be judged by interviews this year in lieu of a mystery shop)
  • NEW!  Team Player of The Year - This category is for any individual that contributes to the overall success of their team and supports the daily operations of the business. This can be for any position that provides strong team support, whether they are part of the leasing/office staff or the maintenance/grounds staff. The recommendation should provide an explanation (and examples) of how this person provides such support and betters their team as well as any special accomplishments.  There will be no interview for this award but there will be an online questionnaire.
  • NEW!  Rookie of The Year - This category is for individuals that are new to this industry within the past 2 years (regardless of position).  Nominees for this category are not only new to their role but have displayed leadership qualities and a passion for what they do. 

Rules & Judging: 

Each entry for individual award categories will be billed a nomination fee of $20 for their entry.

Self nomination is not permissible.  An individual may be nominated by their superiors or their peers. The person nominating an individual for an award must provide a recommendation for said award. Past winners may not enter the same award category for which they received a past award unless 2 years have passed since the year for which they won said award. For example, if an individual won "Leasing Professional" in 2018, they may not enter that same category again until 2020 but they may still enter any other category (if it is consistent with their job title). However, if they won in 2017 then they would be eligible to enter again in 2019.

Judging will take place in late October - early November (exact date and time of the interview will be given to the nominees at least 72 hours prior to the scheduled judging interview, except for Team Player which will not have an interview).

Nominees will first complete a short online questionnaire and will then be scheduled for phone interviews.  At the award interviews, nominees will be asked a set of questions and they will be scored on their answers. A combination of the scoring at their interview, scoring of their online questionnaire and their recommendation will determine the winner of this category.  Nominees will receive a separate email, after nominations have closed, regarding an appointment for their scheduled phone interview. 
**Please note VAMA reserves the right to eliminate categories in which less than 3 entries were received.
