Currently, all GCAA events through the end of March have been cancelled and we are looking at the schedule for April following the advice of the CDC and state of Georgia.
This includes the March Board meeting, Dinner Meeting, CAM Testing, Committee Meetings, Networking Breakfast, Etc.
The National Apartment Association held a webinar (geared towards property management) last week. A recording of that call may be made available to NAA members through their website here.
As we learn more, we will post to this page as well as distribute through email and social media channels.
GCAA has been contacted by members inquiring about the coronavirus impact on the industry and looking for resources for information and/or preparation.
The main source of information for the coronavirus (COVID-19) should be the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as they are the leading edge government organization monitoring the outbreak.
