Government Affairs

AAKC works along with the National Apartment Association, Missouri Apartment Association and Kansas NAA Affiliates to protect owners in the Kansas City Metropolitan area by monitoring local, state and national legislation. AAKC represents over 100,000 apartment homes and we work hard to ensure our voice is heard! AAKC is currently working on several different issues that will affect apartment owners in Kansas and Missouri. Keep up to date on local/state/national issues by attending our quarterly Government Affairs meetings.

The National Apartment Association is the leading advocate for America's apartment industry. NAA Government Affairs provides expert analysis and insight into the industry's most pressing issues by monitoring legislation and regulatory issues, conducting research and identifying emerging friends. We also engage our members in ongoing dialogues with elected officials to ensure that our perspective is heard and understood. Through our grassroots network, we call on our members to contact Congress concerning critical issues in our focused national agenda. It is important to visit the NAA website at to sign up for the Grassroots program and to find out about all the current legislative issues.

In 2019, AAKC hired Jason Grill with JGrill Media to be our Government Affairs Director. Jason has been a great asset assisting with several city legislative issues in the Kansas City Metropolitan area. If you know of any issues that are being raised in your city, please contact Nickole or Dennis.

In 2022, AAKC Government Affairs committee will be planning a large PAC event. Watch for details.
