FAA Issues Call for Presentations for 2019 FAA Annual Conference & Trade Show

FAA News ,

The Florida Apartment Association is seeking educational session proposals for the 2019 FAA Annual Conference & Trade Show. FAA wants to provide its members with educational and innovative speaker sessions that will actively engage and inform members. Speakers and sessions should stimulate discussions and address topics that directly impact members and all aspects of the multifamily industry.

Event Details

The 2019 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 October 2-4 at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek in Orlando, Fla.

Conference attendees include property managers, leasing agents, executives and staff from management companies, maintenance professionals, and 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.

Supplier companies are encouraged to participate, but 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. In addition, supplier presentations should include one or more multifamily professionals to offer a management perspective.

Submission Process

All submissions for sessions and speaker proposals must be submitted online by 11:59 p.m. on Friday November 30, 2018. Incomplete, late, or promotional submissions will not be considered.

  • 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 2019. Selected presenters will be compensated with conference registration and housing accommodations. If you have any questions, contact Ralph Robinson at ralph@faahq.org or call FAA headquarters at 407-960-2910.
