SLAA Announces the 2023 Rising Star Winners!
The St. Louis Apartment Association (SLAA) was chartered in 1976 for the purpose of advancing the general welfare of the multifamily housing industry in the Metropolitan St. Louis area.
On Friday evening, May 19, SLAA hosted their premiere event of the year, the Rising Star Awards Banquet, at the Sheraton Westport’s Lakeside Chalet.
