The mission of NVAA is to be the leader in the residential rental industry of Northern Virginia. We provide legislative and regulatory representation, and communicate current trends and issues. We continually work to educate the property management industry, and offer an interactive forum to related service providers who are essential to the apartment rental industry.

NVAA was founded in 1956 by a small group of apartment owners and managers who believed that our industry could benefit from a local organization with property management as a common bond for affecting positive change. Shortly thereafter, the group realized that suppliers, contractors and support businesses could benefit from belonging to the organization. These businesses were invited to join as associate members and have become an integral part of NVAA.

NVAA fulfills our mission through continued legislative efforts, training programs and a monthly newsletter. Most of our owner members view our legislative representation by Chip Dicks, an exceptionally experienced and connected lobbyist in Richmond, as one of the most valuable NVAA member benefits. We know NVAA can provide you with superior legislative tools, networking opportunities and more to help you reach your own professional goals.
