SLAA members promote the enactment and enforcement of local, state, and federal laws and regulations beneficial to the multi-housing industry and free enterprise.

Through its Legislative Committee, SLAA is keeping members informed of proposed changes in laws that will directly affect your property. We monitor relevant issues, property taxation, building codes and restrictions and landlord/tenant relationships.


Networking with your industry peers is a valuable resource.  SLAA hosts a variety of educational programs and special events that members are encouraged to attend.

Our Fall Expo and Seminar typically takes place in October of each year.
