About BAAA Committees

Committees are one of the most productive tools an association has to accomplish the organization’s goals and objectives. Whether you are chairing a committee or are a committee member, you face the challenge of getting involved in the work the committee was formed to accomplish. The recommendations of a committee often have a direct impact on the decisions made by the officers and the board of directors of the association.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)

BAAA is committed to providing an environment where people of all ethnicities, genders, ages, races, and orientations feel included, valued, and seen. The professionals that work within the apartment industry, and the residents who call our apartments home, represent a vibrant and diverse fabric of backgrounds and life experiences. This fabric is a major factor in what makes this industry, and our associations, so special and unique. The DEI Committee has taken steps to ensure that all are being recognized and works to integrate best practices for diversity, equity, and inclusion into the multi-family industry.
