Business Networking Sponsor Opportunities
As members of the apartment association your company has exclusive opportunities to sponsor and advertise in our monthly membership events. Also, our members have exclusive advertising rights to market their company on our LAAMembers.com business directory, as well as, our LBKapts.com website. Each website reaches thousand of members and non-members alike giving vast possibilities to grow your business.
General Membership Luncheons - Almost every month LAA hosts a luncheon at a local venue. All members of the association are encouraged to attend. These luncheons are a great way to get your company in front of decision makers and meet other individuals in the membership. The meetings are informative and a lot of fun.
Business Exchange - The Business Exchange is a unique event that allows businesses to have one-on-one interaction with apartment industry leaders. It has been described as a “reverse trade show” or “speed dating”. During the exchange each participating product service member is given approximately 10 minutes with each decision maker to discuss his or her product and service.
State of the City Address - The Lubbock Apartment Association is honored to have the current Mayor give the State of the City Address to our membership and city business leaders. LAA has hosted the State of the City since 1982 and welcomes the entire city of Lubbock to attend. This event provides the opportunity for the Mayor of Lubbock to recap the city’s economic development and activities from the previous year and speak about what the new year holds. A portion of the proceeds from this event are donated to the Mayor’s charity of choice.
Installation of Officers Banquet - Early in the year LAA holds an Installation of Officers Banquet. This is an elegant evening that highlights the past year’s activities and leadership. The National Apartment Association Chairman and Texas Apartment Association President typically install the new Board of Directors and Officers. Product Service members are encouraged to sponsor this event and attend. Each sponsor receives individualized marketing at the event and opportunities to stand out in front of the membership.
Maintenance Mania Competition - Maintenance Mania is a national competition where maintenance technicians compete against each other and the time clock in various skill-based games. They also compete in a race car building competition, similar to a soap box derby. Competitors can participate in events at the local level which will qualify them for National Competition that is held at the annual NAA Education Conference & Exposition. Product Service members are encouraged to sponsor games, participate in the timing of the games and be involved with the other members during the competition.
Golf Tournament(s) - Every spring and most every fall a Golf Tournament is held at a local country club. This is a fun day for golfers and non-golfers alike to network and enjoy some friendly competition and prizes. The day is packed with different activities and there are many opportunities to sponsor the event and market your company.
Committee(s) - LAA is a non-profit trade association and many of these events listed are organized by committees made up of our members. Committees are another way to be involved and have your business noticed by other members. Open committees are the Product Service committee, Community service committee, Education committee, Special Events committee and Independent Rental Owner committee.
