Founded in 1969, the Columbus Apartment Association (CAA) was created to serve the needs of the multifamily housing industry. The CAA received its charter for an affiliated association of the National Apartment Association (NAA) in 1970. Since then, it has maintained strong leadership and membership. Starting with a few members and growing to over 330 members, CAA currently represents more than 104,000 multifamily units.

CAA Hall of Fame

The objectives of the CAA are:

  • To promote, advise, and protect the general interest in the construction, ownership, and management of multifamily housing by uniting those engaged in this business;
  • To uphold the dignity of the property management profession and to acquire and disseminate useful business information among its members;
  • To promulgate and enforce a Code of Ethics for the purpose of maintaining high professional standards and sound business practices among the members of the Columbus Apartment Association;
  • To organize, produce, conduct, manage and operate educational schools, facilities, seminars, classes, lectures and such other educational forums, in or about the central Ohio area, from time to time, for the benefit of the Association and the multifamily housing industry;
  • To receive, disburse and allocate charitable funds received from various benevolent trusts and other benefactors to worthwhile recipients in the apartment management educational programs.

It is the constant goal of the CAA leadership and administration to keep the CAA in touch with the industry dynamics and with its member’s needs of today. The CAA also strives to keep an eye on the issues of the future and keep well organized and focused on its purpose, so that it will remain cohesive, united, energetic and ready to address effectively the issues of tomorrow.
