The mission of NVAA is to be the leader in the residential rental industry of Northern Virginia. We provide legislative and regulatory representation, and communicate current trends and issues. We continually work to educate the property management industry, and offer an interactive forum to related service providers who are essential to the rental apartment industry.

NVAA fulfills our mission through continued legislative efforts, training programs and a monthly newsletter. Most of our owner members view our legislative representation by Chip Dicks, an exceptionally experienced and connected lobbyist in Richmond, as one of the most valuable NVAA member benefits. We know NVAA can provide you with superior legislative tools, networking opportunities and more to help you reach your own professional goals.


NVAA protects and represents our members’ interest with regard to legislative and regulatory issues at the local and state level. Our owner members view our legislative representation as one of the most valuable NVAA member benefits. To that extent we dedicate a substantial portion of our annual budget and our committee efforts towards representation on the legislative level that furthers our member’s interest.


NVAA provides timely and valuable educational offerings for all levels of your organization, from facilities to executive. Your staff will be supported with the training and education required for companies to stay competitive in today’s multi-family marketplace. These educational offerings will develop and retain high-quality professionals and foster tomorrow’s apartment industry leaders.


Provide your company with the exposure within the multi-family industry that is paramount to attract and retain the most talented employees. Your company will also have routine contact with industry experts that will provide valuable insights on how to improve your company’s performance.

NVAA social events and holiday celebrations can augment or replace your company events. Strengthening your company’s organizational bonds is critical to business success, but can be very costly. The NVAA provides a variety of events where you can bring your company together in an extremely cost effective way and bolster your organization’s spirit.
