Meet the TAA Advocacy Team

TAA’s government relations team works year-round to protect and promote the Texas rental housing industry.

The Texas Apartment Association’s advocacy efforts are led by a diverse professional staff with a combined total of more than 70 years of legal, legislative and government affairs experience. In addition to our in-house government affairs team, TAA also works with consultants who provide specialized expertise on a variety of issues with the potential to impact our members.
