FAA APTitudes Newsletter
February 2019 | The monthly e-newsletter of the Florida Apartment Association
What's New in the FAA
The apartment industry recognizes the housing shortage has impacted housing affordability in Central Florida and looks forward to working collaboratively with state and local policymakers to increase the supply and affordability of housing in the state of Florida. While some lawmakers may view rent control as a viable option, in practice these policies have demonstrable and well-documented negative effects.
The Florida Apartment Association's pre-session legislative update conference call will take place on Friday, March 1, at 11 AM.
FAA members can purchase a discounted registration for the NAA Apartmentalize Conference, which takes place June 26-29, 2019, in Denver. Click "Learn More" to download a registration form. Email rona@faahq.org if you have questions or require assistance.
