Get Groovy, Baby!

How many song hits can you name from 1967? Does I’m A Believer by the Monkees come to mind? What about the infamous Light My Fire by the Doors? What about a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T? Aretha Franklin in the house! The Beatles had a good year as well. Ever heard of Penny Lane? What about All You Need Love? The Rolling Stones are no exception either, they pushed out the classic tune Ruby Tuesday. So many hits in one year, it’s truly remarkable. Did we mention it was the first year the Chevy Camaro went on the market. You don’t see too many of those around anymore. You’d be lucky to see one!

The most important thing that happened in 1967 though, was the beginning of the Apartment Association of Tarrant County. That’s right, we are celebrating our 50th year of industry service this year. We hope you are as excited as we are and hope you’ll come celebrate with us on September 22 at Arlington Convention Center for our Lone Star Awards and Leadership Celebration presented by Earthworks.

The attire for this event will be 60’s throwback or business casual—your choice! Registration opens at 5pm, dinner will be provided, and there will be live music. This year, we are offering shuttle service to and from the parking lot as well. Last, but not least, we have the usual cash bar available throughout the evening.

This event would not be possible without the support of our event sponsors. Earthworks is our title sponsor for this year’s event. Our award sponsors include: Leasing Consultant Of the Year
