LAA boasts some of the most active and involved members of any organization in Lubbock. And doing business with other members is just one of the hallmarks of our association. By joining the association, you will have access to the decision-makers of the over 500 members of the association.
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 thousands of members and non-members alike giving vast possibilities to grow your business.
The Business Exchange is a unique event that allows businesses to interact 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.

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.
Installation of Officers Banquet
Early in the year, LAA holds an Installation of Officers Banquet. This elegant evening 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. Supplier Partner 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 soapbox derby. Competitors can participate in events at the local level, which will qualify them for National Competition held at the annual NAA Education Conference & Exposition. Supplier Partner members are encouraged to sponsor games, participate in the timing of the games, and be involved with the other members during the competition.
A Golf Tournament is held at a local country club every spring and most every fall. This is a fun day for golfers and non-golfers to network and enjoy friendly competition and prizes. The day is packed with different activities, and there are many opportunities to sponsor the event and market your company.
LAA is a non-profit trade association, and many of the 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 include Supplier Partner, Community service, Education, Special Events, and Independent Rental Owner.
