Join us in celebrating this year’s winners, listed below! Winners are honored in person each April at the Awards Gala during the TAA ONE Conference & Expo. Make your plans to attend!

Brad Williams, CPM  was a tireless advocate for the rental housing industry, passionate about our business, and the people who make that business thrive in Texas. Affectionately known as “PAC-Man,” Brad was a relentless fundraiser for Political Action Committees at the local, state and national levels. He also served as both the president of the Apartment Association of Greater Dallas and the Texas Apartment Association, as well as leading the National Apartment Association as chairman of the board.

The Texas Apartment Association presented the new Brad Williams Advocate of the Year Award for the first time in 2022. It honors a member for his or her advocacy work at the local, state or national level.

Barbara MacManus, CAM, CAPS, CPM is a long-time member of the San Antonio Apartment Association and a leader in the Texas Apartment Association’s education efforts. MacManus served on the task force that developed the original CAM (Certified Apartment Manager) course and even helped to write the original curriculum for the course.

TAA’s first CAM of the Year Award was presented in 1989. This award, and its successor, the Apartment Manager of the Year Award, are named in honor of MacManus. She is also a recipient of the Jennette Hunnicutt Distinguished Service Award.

Mary Williams, CAMT was an active member of the Apartment Association of Greater Dallas, and helped to move the Certificate for Apartment Maintenance Technicians program from a classroom lecture series to a hands-on program emphasizing practical skills. AAGD was also the first local apartment association with a training facility that could accommodate these skills-training elements of the revamped CAMT program.

The Texas Apartment Association’s CAMT of the Year Award, which was first presented in 1989, is named in honor of Williams.

Anita Marcino, CAM, CAPS, NALP, another tireless advocate for industry education and professional development, was a past president of the Apartment Association of Greater Dallas and a former Vice President at Large on the Texas Apartment Association Executive Committee. In her position with First Worthing, Marcino was responsible for bringing large groups of site-level employees to the annual TAA Education Conferences, and First Worthing was one of the first large management companies to host company meetings in connection with the TAA Education Conference.

Marcino was instrumental in the development of the Professional Leasing Program in the Apartment Association of Greater Dallas, which was adapted nationally as the National Apartment Leasing Professional program. TAA’s Leasing Professional of the Year Award was named in honor of Marcino in 2011.

Rita Kirby, CAM, CAPS, CPM was a strong advocate of life-long learning. She was a member of the task force that wrote the original CAPS (Certified Apartment Portfolio Supervisor) curriculum, and is the “namesake” for the Texas Apartment Association’s Regional Property Manager of the Year Award, formerly known as the Professional Designate of the Year Award. She was a past president of the Apartment Association of Greater Dallas, a past chairman of the TAA and NAA Education Committees and a past president of the Dallas IREM chapter.

As principal with The Resource Company, Kirby authored the TAA Bluebook crime awareness and prevention guide and the Apartment Association of Greater Dallas’ Fair Housing Compliance for Apartments guide. She developed a Human Resource Management Guide for Apartment Professionals for AAGD and the National Apartment Association. She was also a recipient of the Jennette Hunnicutt Distinguished Service Award.

Bob Ross was the fifth president of the Texas Apartment Association and also served as president of the National Apartment Association. His family-owned and operated business, Bob Ross Realty in San Antonio, is still an active member of the Texas Apartment Association and the National Apartment Association. His son, Marc, followed in his father’s footsteps at the company and in his association involvement, serving as a president of TAA and as chairman of the National Apartment Association.

Olin Steele was the consummate team player and a dedicated apartment association volunteer. He was instrumental in founding a number of Texas Apartment Association local affiliates around the state, serving as a role model for associate members and demonstrating the vital role supplier members play in supporting and furthering the goals of all our associations. “His biggest strengths were his heart and his word,” according to his son, Ron Steele. “If he gave you his word on something, you could certainly count on it, and that meant a lot to him,” Steele said.

Olin Steele worked for Solon, which later became WEB Service Company, and eventually Coinmach. All have been long-time supporters and sponsors of TAA and local apartment associations. TAA first presented an award to the outstanding product/service member of the year in 1987, making it the first such award recognizing an individual’s contributions to the industry and the association. The award, named in honor of Olin Steele, is still the only award exclusively recognizing the important role played by associate members.

Brad Williams Advocate of the Year
Marc Ross CAPS
Bob Ross Realty
San Antonio Apartment Association

“Early in my career, Brad convinced me that political involvement, raising PAC funds, engaging members in grassroots campaigns and establishing relationships with local, state and national legislators and regulators was important to our industry. My relationship with Brad taught me that my real job is to motivate other volunteers to get involved. Four decades after meeting Brad, I am still very involved in political advocacy for the apartment industry.

What I am most proud of is that along the way and because of Brad, I have inspired and mentored countless members and leaders to understand the importance of political advocacy and get them to ‘Drink the Kool-Aid.’”

I’m the Leasing Professional of the Year!” It’s a great honor and I can’t wait to see everything else that I can achieve in this awesome industry. This is my first but definitely not my last.”

I look forward to being associated with this industry and giving back!”

George Allen Association Executive of the Year
Scott Lynch
El Paso Apartment Association

“I feel honored that the EPAA Board of Directors had the confidence in me to follow my advice to enact bold changes. My first day on the job coincided with the City of El Paso issuing the first of many emergency orders. I had some moments where I questioned whether I made the correct choices. Winning this award makes me proud of the entire EPAA staff and board members. We were able to thrive under difficult circumstances.”
