Advocacy Counts!

The Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles provides essential governmental advocacy on the local, state and federal levels. Rental housing is one of the most regulated industries and it is vital that you are represented and your voice is heard by lawmakers. Without our Association, there is no alternative voice fighting on your behalf in city halls across the state of California or in Sacramento.

On the local level, we cover the Counties of Los Angeles, Ventura and San Bernardino and over 120 cities within their boundaries.  On the State level, we are a member of the California Rental Housing Association, which is federation of ten state associations that work together to advance the interests of the multifamily housing industry in Sacramento. Nationally, we are proud members of the National Apartment Association where associations from across the United States advocate cohesively to policy makers in Washington, D.C. As a member of the Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles, you can be assured that we have your back on all issues and at every level.

We are always on watch to defend the rental housing industry and work hard to promote the highest level of professionalism within our industry. We mobilize when there are pressing issues in our territory and throughout the State of California ensuring our members are up to speed on decisions that will affect their investment. We work with our members on a regular basis to make sure lawmakers and decision makers are hearing the concerns of the industry and taking action to address those concerns.

Now more than ever, we need members to become involved. To effectively advocate, we need more members to join our efforts! It is vital to have owners engage with policy makers, relay their experiences and ensure the voice of the industry is heard loud and clear. Whether it is making calls to get out the vote for candidates we support, donating to one of our two political action committees, or testifying at City Halls or County Halls of Administration; there are many ways you can help amplify our message and promote the tremendous service multi-family housing owners provide. We are looking for volunteers in all cities to mobilize and take action with us!
