Call for Presentations for 2022 Annual Conference - Deadline Extended Until Wednesday, December 15

FAA News ,

The Florida Apartment Association is seeking education session proposals for the 2022 FAA Annual Conference & Trade Show. FAA wants to provide its members with educational and innovative speaker sessions that will actively engage and inform. Speakers and sessions should stimulate discussion and address topics that directly impact members and all aspects of the multifamily industry.  

About the Event

The 2022 FAA Annual Conference & Trade Show gathers multifamily industry professionals from across the state to engage in three days of educational sessions and events. The conference will take place September 28-30 at The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Fla.

Conference attendees include property managers, leasing agents, executives, maintenance professionals, and other staff from multifamily management companies, as well as industry suppliers. Members attend to improve their careers through professional development and peer collaboration. This is your opportunity to showcase your ideas to your peers and potential clients!

What We’re Looking For

FAA is focused on how individuals and ­companies can stay relevant through professional growth and development, no matter their experience or career level. FAA wants to provide sessions with practical solutions to common challenges that will have long-term career value.

Sessions should focus on trends, technology, and techniques vetted by theory, research, and practice. All presentations should highlight one of our nine industry-specific categories:

  • Affordable Housing
  • Risk Management
  • Revenue Management
  • Property Management
  • Innovation
  • Sustainability
  • Marketing
  • Maintenance
  • Other

Attendees should be able to return to their organizations with a fresh perspective and the ability to implement change based on the knowledge they’ve gained through each session.

Suppliers

Suppliers to the multifamily industry are welcome to submit proposals for panel presentations. Panels may have only one representative from the submitting supplier company (the moderator). Each panel should include at least one customer or client from multifamily management. Supplier companies may not submit any promotional or advertising material. The proposed topic must be educational and relevant to the multifamily industry without explicitly promoting your company.

Submission Process

All submissions for sessions and speaker proposals must be submitted online by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, December 15, 2021. Incomplete, late, or promotional submissions will not be considered. The FAA Conference Planning Committee will consider a maximum of three session proposals per company; this applies to both multifamily management companies and supplier companies. This submission process is NOT for paid multifamily speakers. If you are a professional speaker please submit your information directly to ralph@faahq.org.

Proposals will be evaluated using the following criteria:

  • Relevance to multifamily housing industry
  • Intelligent and clearly articulated submission materials
  • Presenter/speaker qualifications
  • Usefulness of information for attendees to apply to daily work life
  • Appropriateness to an advanced audience

Speakers will be selected and notified mid-February 2022. If you have any questions, contact Ralph Robinson at ralph@faahq.org or call FAA headquarters at 407-960-2910.
