The South East Florida Apartment Association (SEFAA) and the Apartment Political Action Committee (APAC) are two organizations in the multifamily housing industry that are focused on providing affordable and safe housing. These organizations work together simultaneously to advocate for or against bills that to go through the government and legislation in order to attain positive growth and funding for the industry.
The main goal of APAC is to help advance the interest of their members through political advocacy at state and local government levels. The purpose is to increase funds and select candidates that support and want to make a difference on interests and issues within the community. One of the main bills APAC has passed is the HB 535, which allows CAMTs to work on HVAC, AC, and water heaters. Another main objective of APAC is to create housing funds without raising taxes; the organization strives to provide safe and affordable housing for the community.
SEFAA is the leading advocate for housing providers in South East Florida. SEFAA is seeking to make a difference in the multifamily industry and strives to provide a quality standard of living for the residents in the South Florida area. In addition, SEFAA offers educational programs that are approved by the National Apartment Association Education Institute (NAAEI) in order to continue to provide the best possible service and knowledge to their clients. The ability of apartment owners to continue to provide safe, affordable rental housing to our residents, and deliver valued services to them – while doing this effectively, efficiently, and profitably – rests on the continued financial strength of APAC.
