Leadership Lyceum

HAA created this leadership development program to identify high-caliber, effective, well-informed industry professionals and educate them on the mission and strategic objectives of the association and its affiliated associations.

Who is eligible?  

Individuals working for HAA members are eligible to apply. If you have three or more years of multifamily property management experience and have served on an HAA committee you may apply.  If you are a supplier partner, you will need at least two years experience working for a supplier company and have served on an HAA committee.   

What does the program include?    

The program includes four - five sessions with specific topics, with a half a day commitment and attendance at other committee meetings which typically last on average of an hour.  We schedule the sessions to occur the first half of the year.  You have two years to complete the program so if you miss a session this year, you can catch it when it is offered the following year.    

How many people will be selected?

Up to 15 individuals will be selected for each class.           

How do I apply?  

If you would like to apply for the 2019 class, please contact Susan at shinkley@haaonline.org   for an application.  Your application must be accompanied by TWO letters of recommendation.  One letter of recommendation should be from a supervisor and the 2nd letter from a colleague active in the industry.  The Leadership Development Committee, comprised of HAA Executive Committee leaders, past lyceum graduates and Past Presidents of HAA will review applications and select participants.  Applicants will be notified after the committee meets, typically in early December.

Once I complete the program how will I be recognized as a graduate? 

All candidates that have completed the full program by the end of May will be recognized at the Awards event in June.   Candidates who complete the program by the end of October will receive recognition and their HAA Lyceum pin at the Annual Business Meeting in November. 

All graduates will also receive recognition in HAA’s monthly magazine ABODE and the website.
