General Membership Luncheons
Almost every month the Lubbock
Apartment Association (LAA) hosts
a luncheon at a local venue. All members of the
association are encouraged to attend. These luncheons
are a great way to meet other individuals in the
multi-family housing industry and learn about
the activities happening in the association. The
meetings are informative and a lot of fun.
Check the calendar
to see when the next luncheon is scheduled.
of the City Address Lubbock
Apartment Association (LAA) is thrilled every year to have the Mayor of Lubbock
give the State of the City Address to our membership.
LAA has hosted the State of the City Address for
over 30 years and welcomes the entire city of Lubbock
to attend. The luncheon is the first opportunity
for the Mayor to recap the city’s condition
and activities from the previous year.
The Business Exchange is a unique event that allows
businesses to have one-on-one interaction with
apartment industry decision makers. It has been described
as a "reverse trade show" and compared to "speed dating". Each participating
business member is able to have approximately
10 minutes with each decision maker to discuss
his or her products and services, and to set up a follow-up appointment.
Every year a Golf Tournament is held at a local country club.
This is a fun day for golfers and a great opportunity to network. The
day is packed with different activities and opportunities for you to
market your company.
Early in the year the Lubbock
Apartment Association (LAA) hosts the Installation Banquet.
This is an elegant evening that highlights the past year's
activities and leadership. Generally, the Texas Apartment Association President
installs the new Board of Directors and officers.
Periodically, the Lubbock
Apartment Association (LAA) hosts an Education Conference for
the membership. The Education Conference has top
ranked speakers, which cover a variety of topics
for management personnel and maintenance technicians in various break-out sessions.
A motivational seminar is also provided for everyone
to attend including Product / Service Members.
The Trade Show is a great opportunity for businesses
to showcase their products and services to our
membership. Typically the Trade Show is a day-long
event that includes LAA members viewing the
booths on exhibit. The Trade Show is a themed event, which makes it very
fun and entertaining. This event is held periodically, in conjunction with the Education Conference.
In recent years, the association members team up to make
a difference in the community with the annual LAA Food Drive. Everyone
comes together to help collect food and money
for the South Plains Food Bank. Apartment communities
collect food from residents while businesses try
to collect food from customers. Every year the
event is a great success.
the Warmth’ Coat Drive
In 2005, the Lubbock
Apartment Association (LAA) became the official sponsor of the
'Share the Warmth' coat drive. The goal of the
coat drive is to collect items of warmth and
distribute clean and wearable items to children
and adults in-need on the South Pains. This
includes scarves, sweaters, gloves, hats and
coats. The association volunteers and over
140 community partners have collected and distributed
over 20,000 coats and items of warmth. Recently, the Association has passed on its expertise to several non-profit agencies to carry on 'Share the Warmth.'
