With 3.6 million Georgians residing in rental housing, the Georgia apartment industry is an important one. As the voice of the multi-family housing industry, the Georgia Apartment Association (GAA) and their affiliates are committed to providing its members top notch education, networking, and overall involvement.
The GAA consists of apartment communities, owners, managers, and suppliers dedicated to promoting and advancing the needs of the apartment industry. The GAA is comprised of seven affiliate associations from within the state of Georgia, including the South Georgia Apartment Association (SGAA).
As an affiliate of the GAA, the SGAA is a member driven, non-profit association dedicated to promoting and protecting the interests and professional advancement of the multi-family housing industry.
SGAA, along with other associations, work together toward a common goal of joining the multi-family housing industry. SGAA focuses on the following three key areas to achieve their purpose:
Becoming a part of the growing SGAA organization will greatly benefit you and your company. A few of those benefits include GAA and NAA membership, involvement in community events, networking through monthly meetings, and access to legislation changes that affect the housing industry.
So, how exactly do you become a member of the GAA? Simply join the affiliated apartment association in the location where you currently do business. For example, if you are a part of Lowndes county, you would join the SGAA. By joining a local affiliate, you automatically become a member of the GAA.
With the GAA’s Annual meeting approaching in September, now is the perfect time to become a member. This year’s annual meeting will be held September 5-7 in Savannah, Georgia at the Grand Hyatt. The meeting is focused on networking and educational opportunities.

Additionally, the SGAA is hosting a Vendor Trade Show at the James H. Rainwater Conference Center in Valdosta on October 18 from 5-8 pm.
