The RVAA with its affiliate membership in Virginia Apartment Management Association (VAMA)
is able to provide to all members, a periodic update of state legislative actions affecting the multi-family housing management industry. Because of VAMA's extensive knowledge about and concern for both landlord and tenant interests, VAMA is frequently consulted by the executive and legislative branches of our state government to evaluate or comment upon proposed or contemplated legislation. In this regard, VAMA is called upon to provide testimony, or statistical information and other analysis, to various committees of the Virginia General Assembly, and VAMA's members have been appointed to serve on numerous statewide advisory boards including the Governor's Commission on Housing. On a national level, our association with the National Apartment Association
provides similar services regarding housing issues.
