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 and how do I apply?

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 meet the requirements.  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 is the selection process? Each class typically includes 10 active volunteers. Your application must be accompanied by TWO letters of recommendation.  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. If you are interested in applying, please email  shinkley@haaonline.org  for an application.  The 2024 class has been selected. 

What is the time commitment to complete the program?

The program includes four - five sessions over the course of eight months. The sessions will include discussion on legislative advocacy, understanding how TAA and NAA work with HAA and more.  Most sessions are just a half a day commitment.  Candidates will also be asked to attend specific committee meetings which typically last on average an hour. The sessions begin in February and end in September.  Candidates have two years to complete the program. 

What are the benefits of participating in the program?

This is a deep dive into HAA, TAA and NAA and how these organizations work together to shape the future of the multifamily industry. The knowledge gained from this program will help the candidate gain the knowledge needed for future leadership opportunities in all three associations.  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.
