Don’t Forget AATC When Planning Your Budget!

by Nicolle Block, AMLI Residential, 2019-2019 AATC President 

In an effort to continue providing the best services and resources to our members, you may have noticed recent adjustments to the pricing structure for some of our upcoming events, programs, and annual fees. Don’t let this take you by surprise once budget season rolls around—plan ahead now! Below is a list of some events/programs you should keep in mind for your upcoming budget season:

Lunch & Law Seminars

To help you navigate the various legal issues impacting your business, we at AATC (along with the help of our knowledgeable member attorney firms) provide a series of Lunch & Law Seminars chocked full of invaluable content to you and your business. Lunch & Law seminars are one-hour, over-lunch discussions on hot legal topics facing our industry. Our 2019 topics include hoarding, service/support animals; domestic violence, death of a resident, holding-over, and application fraud. These sessions are great opportunities to interact with an AATC member lawyer on a less formal basis. We’re providing these fantastic seminars for the low price of $75 with lunch included!

Lone Star Awards Leadership Celebration

Not only is it our annual AATC installation, but it’s also where we recognize the best of the best in the industry. Each year, AATC reviews hundreds of nominees to award only a select few for the prestigious Lone Star Award across 14 award categories. To be nominated for a Lone Star Award is an honor in itself, and to be recognized as a Lone Star Award recipient is a true mark of excellence. Registration will be the discounted rate of $95 if you pre-pay and $105 if you choose to be billed. Limited walk-in registrations may be available the day of the event. We hope you’ll join us on Friday, September 27th at the Fort Worth Convention Center to help us welcome our new leadership team and celebrate all the deserving award nominees!
