Rental PropertySB Association Joins National Apartment Association

The National Apartment Association (NAA) Board of Directors approved and welcomed the Santa Barbara Rental Property Association (SBRPA) as its seventh affiliate in California, effective June 27.


SBRPA joins these California-based NAA affiliates: Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles; Apartment Association of Orange County; Apartment Association, California Southern Cities; East Bay Rental Housing Association; NorCal Rental Property Association; and San Diego County Apartment Association.

“This partnership will provide additional support to SBRPA’s California-based efforts and give its members access to NAA’s national resources, which enhance the value of membership to an independent rental owner, property management professional or large multifamily owner,” said Doug Culkin, NAA President & CEO.

The SBRPA joins NAA’s federation of state and local affiliates who already look to NAA’s educational, training, event and advocacy offerings as critical professional development and networking resources.

“We are thrilled to join the NAA family in California and across the country,” said SBRPA President Chris Agnoli. “Over the next year, SBRPA will begin to roll-out all the enhanced services and programs to our over 950 members, including NAA’s online courses and attending the largest apartment industry event, the NAA Education Conference & Exposition, which next year is June 20-22 in San Diego.”

The NAA Education Institute (NAAEI) recently unveiled more than 50 online courses and seminars available 24/7/365 through a new customized learning management system (LMS), which significantly reduces the cost of educating employees and increases accessibility for members who cannot attend in-person training.
