Emerging Leaders Council


The mission of the Emerging Leaders Council is to support and enrich the goals of AOBA while providing a platform to  shape the development, encourage mentorship and advance the next generation of AOBA members.

AOBA launched the Emerging Leaders Council (ELC) for property management professionals, with three to 10 years of property management experience, in 2019. The ELC meets quarterly to develop professional development seminars, networking opportunities, and connections with local leaders. Each member of the ELC commits to:

  • A two-year term
  • Attend at least two out of the four quarterly  ELC meetings per year
  • As a group, plan at least one professional development program per year
  • Participate as a member on at least one AOBA committee, preferably a government affairs committee
  • Attend the Annual Meeting and at least one additional AOBA special event per year
  • Support at least one AOBA-sponsored community outreach activity per year
  • Engage and educate others about AOBA’s mission
  • Recruit new members to AOBA

By joining AOBA's Emerging Leaders Council, representatives agree to be actively involved in AOBA's mission to protect and enhance the value of its members’ investments through effective leadership, advocacy, information exchange and professional development.
