Keep up with what’s happening in the Texas rental housing industry

TAAEF’s “Be the Next Room to Grow Ambassador” video challenge is LIVE!


This year’s “Be the Next Room to Grow Ambassador” video challenge is for maintenance professionals only—enter submissions now from your team!  

Key takeaways

  • The “Be the Next Room to Grow Ambassador” initiative is an internal video challenge for industry employees in maintenance positions to tell their stories and be an Ambassador for the industry. 
  • Encourage your friends and maintenance staff to submit a video, too—one of you just might be our next ambassador!
  • The submissions website is open and the process is easy—simply record a short video of yourself telling us who you are, what you do and what you love about your job. 

By popular demand, the Texas Apartment Association Education Foundation is excited to bring back the “Be the Next Room to Grow Ambassador” video challenge, part of the Room to Grow campaign.

This year the campaign is focusing on maintenance professionals, the often-unsung heroes of the multifamily industry who keep properties in working order and safe. Not only do they keep things running smoothly, they also help our residents feel at home.

Maintenance is the #1 need when it comes to recruiting and staffing for multifamily properties. TAAEF hopes this focus on maintenance provides more stories to share that resonate with Texans looking for not just a job but a career.

To participate in this year’s “Be the Next Room to Grow Ambassador” video challenge, submit your video now; the submission site closes on January 26.

The winner of the challenge will be featured in a professionally produced video and receive high-quality photographs. This video will debut at the TAA ONE Conference & Expo and the winner will receive a free registration and hotel stay during the conference. The new Ambassador will also be featured in Texas Apartments magazine, TAA Viewpoints newsletter and throughout TAAEF and TAA’s social media channels.  This year, the winner will also win a $500 gift card courtesy of HD Supply!

Please share this article and opportunity with any colleagues you think would be a good fit and encourage them to participate—we’d love to hear their story.

It is TAAEF’s hope that “Be the Next Room to Grow Ambassador” empowers you to share your story to help raise awareness about the diverse, quality career opportunities in the Texas apartment industry.
