In addition to having access to all of the benefits that SCAA provides, our members enjoy complimentary membership within the Florida Apartment Association and the National Apartment Association.
NAA is America's leading advocate for quality rental housing.

By establishing a local affiliate, property management professionals and their suppliers in Florida have joined 28,000 multifamily housing companies representing more than 4.6 million apartment homes throughout the United States. Our members represent all facets of the multifamily housing industry: owners, managers, developers, leasing consultants, maintenance technicians and suppliers.
Since 1970, the Florida Apartment Association has worked to ensure high property management standards and resident satisfaction and safety in Florida. Volunteers from throughout the state meet quarterly to discuss issues and problems facing the multifamily housing sector. The association at both the state and local level also provides important social and career benefits for industry personnel. FAA represents a diverse array of apartment property types: new and old, urban and rural, luxury and Section 8, privately developed and state tax-assisted, large multi-management companies and small individual owners, assisted living facilities for seniors and corporate housing for busy businesspeople. For the public, it is important to note, however, that FAA does NOT represent condominiums, hotels, motels, and other transient housing, In addition, it is purely a voluntary organization: not all apartment owners, particularly small individual owners and geographical areas remote from the main city centers, belong to FAA. The association represents the majority of apartment units in Florida-about 264,000 units-but not all.
