The Texas Apartment Association’s prestigious Frank P. Finch Presidential Award was presented to Clay Hicks, CPM during the General Opening Session April 15 in San Antonio during the TAA ONE Conference & Expo. Hicks is just the third volunteer to receive this award twice since its inception in 1991. He previously won the award in 2018.

The Finch Presidential Award is typically given annually to an individual volunteer whose work has had the most impact on TAA during the previous year. 2019-2020 TAA President Mark Hurley chose to honor Hicks for his work on revamping the TAA Student Lease Contract, along with his contributions to TAA’s strategic plan, rebranded conference and leadership initiatives, as well as his work as an officer and executive committee member.

Hicks is the president of TDC Management for The Dinerstein Companies. He will be installed as TAA’s 2022 president this fall and assume that position in January.

Two other volunteers have received the Finch Award twice; both are TAA past presidents. Gary Blumberg, CPA was honored in 1993 and 2008, and the late Brad Williams, CPM was recognized in 1998 and again in 2017.

Congratulations, Clay!
