Class of 2024


NAA’s Leadership Lyceum provides up to 37 individuals an opportunity to develop as inspired, empowered and informed emerging volunteer leaders in the rental housing industry from all active NAA members. With appointed graduates representing NAA’s 10 regions, this immersive and collaborative program equips active NAA volunteer leaders with the skills, confidence and occasion to network and share experiences on a state, local and national level. Participants will gain a diverse and well-rounded perspective from their 2024 classmates that helps create more inclusive working environments throughout the industry. In addition to earning 8 CECs and participating on a local or national committee, you’ll get the chance to show off your new knowledge and skills at three concurrent sessions held during NAA’s Advocate, Apartmentalize and Assembly of Delegates.
