While Beth and Janet were in the Windy City, Video Girl Kimberly was getting in “Leg Day” at TAA’s Day at the Capitol in Austin, Texas on February 15th. And by “leg day” of course we mean Legislative…but there was also a ton of walking!
The Texas Apartment Association conducted a morning session at the Omni Hotel in Austin from 9 – 11 a.m., where we will attendees were briefed on the issues that they planned to discuss with elected officials, then everyone walked together to Iron Cactus Restaurant for lunch. After lunch, the real work began as they headed to the Capitol in teams for a busy afternoon of visits.
A total of 5 teams attended over 30 appointments with State Senators and Representatives. Team Leaders Gary Mann, Mike Clark, Kin Oldham, Kathy Carlton, and Jason Simon led the pack, but everyone got involved in the meetings. In some instances, they met with a key staff member, but in most cases, they met with the senator or representative directly.
Check out these leaders in action making a difference and advocating for the Multifamily Housing Industry in Texas! Way to go and thank you!
