HAA and TAAEFs involvement in the program will ensure the multifamily industry is represented.
Created by the Texas Apartment Association in 2002 to respond to increased demand for trained apartment industry professionals in Texas, TAAEF seeks to raise awareness about career opportunities in the industry while also assisting with industry education for people already working in the field.
To date, TAAEF has provided more than $65,000 in scholarships to RPM students at the university.
