FAA Launches New Maintenance Series at 2019 Annual Conference & Trade Show

FAA is offering three maintenance-related education sessions led by industry experts at the 2019 FAA Annual Conference & Trade Show. The sessions will replace the Maintenance Mania event and offer maintenance professionals an opportunity to hear about new technologies and other ways to help operations run more effectively.

Discover how to stay ahead of service requests, repairs and capital projects, learn about the life cycle of a building, and hear from an expert panel how regular maintenance can save you time and money.

Registration is now open.





Legislative Update Emails

FAA has been sending out weekly email session updates to keep members in-the-know about FAA’s priority pieces of legislation.

During the last few weeks of session, committees took action on FAA priority legislation and other bills that could impact the apartment industry. View the latest session updates here to learn about the status of three pieces of FAA’s priority legislation: reducing emotional support animal fraud and abuse, clarifying the impact fee process, and prohibiting mandatory inclusionary zoning.

In an effort to help you stay up to date, FAA also added a new page to the FAA website titled "2019 Legislation Tracker." Click here to visit this new page for a comprehensive list of the legislation that FAA is tracking this session.

If you aren’t receiving the weekly session update emails, or if you have any questions regarding the legislative process, contact FAA Government Affairs Director Amanda Gill at Amanda@faahq.org.

PSC Name Change Proposal

The FAA Product/Service Council (PSC) proposed a name change to Florida Suppliers Council (FSC) at the January 2019 PSC meeeting. The name change was proposed to better reflect the purpose of the council and stay consistent with NAA's National Suppliers Council (NSC). The name change will be put to a vote at the May 22 FAA Board of Directors meeting.

Stand Out with an Enhanced Business Listing

A more robust and comprehensive supplier directory has replaced the old PSC Buyer's Guide, which in many cases only included one company under a specific category. In the new digital directory, every supplier member has at least a basic listing with contact information and has the opportunity to purchase an enhanced listing for $250. The enhanced listing includes premium placement, a company description, contact information, a link to your website and social media feeds.

Check out the new FAA Supplier Directory, a valuable resource for apartment communities and management companies seeking products and services.

To stand out with an enhanced business listing in FAA's supplier directory, purchase yours today.
