Leadership

Our volunteer leaders make all the difference. 

The Apartment Association of Tarrant County is a not-for-profit trade association created in 1967 for the purpose of supporting the business interests of multi-housing owners, managers, and related vendor-partners throughout a 9-county region of north-central Texas including Erath, Hood, Jack, Johnson, Palo Pinto, Parker, Somervell, Tarrant, and Wise counties. AATC is an independent 501 C-6 org as well as a closely affiliated partner with the Texas Apartment Association in Austin TX and the National Apartment Association in Alexandria VA. We currently represent over 1,800 members that own, manage, and or provide products and services for over 200,000 apartment homes.

Our Mission

The Association’s mission, quite simply our vision is to educate, advocate, network and inspire! We’ve been designed since our beginning to inspire those we represent with a commitment to award-winning education curricula, exemplary public advocacy initiatives, effective communication mediums, and a diverse network of forums for business exchange—each designed to define our marketplace.

Leadership

​AATCs leadership team includes seven officers and 17 directors elected annually by our members to serve the communities we represent. Along with our program chairs and staff, we’re responsible for every aspect of the Association.
