Community Outreach Committee
The community outreach committee identifies opportunities for community involvement and educates the association members of the importance of community outreach. The Apartment Association of Kansas City encourages support through volunteer and philanthropic initiatives and seeks to enhance public awareness of these efforts. If you are seeking ways to network and give back to the community and be involved with the Association, this is the committee for you!
