About the Indiana Apartment Association

Who is the Indiana Apartment Association?

Founded over 90 years ago, the Indiana Apartment Association is a statewide trade association for professionally managed multifamily housing. IAA represents over 270,000 homes in legislative, legal, and regulatory matters at all levels of government. IAA provides services, products, educational programs, and networking opportunities to property management companies and their managed communities to promote ethical, quality rental housing throughout Indiana.

IAA is comprised of diverse property types, property management companies, and suppliers who support the industry. Members of IAA include large corporations, family-owned businesses, and small individual owners. Properties are located in large metropolitan areas and small rural communities. Member-properties range from high-end luxury apartments to affordable properties, including government-assisted properties.

IAA is led by a volunteer board of directors reflective of its membership.  Leadership meets monthly to discuss issues and challenges facing the industry. Membership in IAA is voluntary for property owners in the multifamily housing industry. 

Throughout IAA’s long history, it has always been a leader in advocacy for the rental housing industry, serving as the only organization statewide dedicated to protecting and promoting rental housing. Additionally, IAA has been at the forefront of innovative products and services supporting the multifamily housing industry, including creating an online leasing product, establishing several credentialed education programs, hosting an annual regional multifamily housing conference, and founding an answering service and apartment guide to support our members’ needs.  

IAA is affiliated with the National Apartment Association.
