Advocacy Committee

The AAKC works 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. The AAKC represents over 118,000 apartment homes, 700 properties and 175 management companies in the Kansas City metropolitan area.   We work hard to ensure our voice is heard! We are 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 Advocacy Committee meetings. Advocacy is the number one focus of our association. 

The National Apartment Association is the leading advocate for America's apartment industry. The NAA 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.

AAKC host a Owners/Regional Managers breakfast and a luncheon for our members.  A representative of the National Apartment Association speaks to our members, going over valuable information on Federal and State issues.  We also encourage our members to support the NAA PAC at these events.    

In 2019, the 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 Nordstrom or Chris Woods.
