A Letter From the Chairman

By: Tracey Crowe, CAM, GNAA 2022 Chairman

I am immensely grateful to God for such a time as this. I am proud to announce that I am the First African American Woman, Board Chair in the 53-year history of the Greater Nashville Apartment Association. It's an honor and privilege to share this Chairmanship!

The Greater Nashville Apartment Association has made an impact on my professional development. During the last 21 years, I have gone from a Leasing Consultant, Assistant Manager, Community Manager, and to date Regional Property Manager with Lion Real Estate. GNAA has stretched, challenged, and helped me grow in ways that you could not imagine--- it was during this time I fell in love with the business. If you declare your career path, align yourself with good people, and a solid organization like the GNAA, you can do anything you set your mind to. It was not easy, let me tell you, but I trusted the process and stayed the course.


Thank you to L.I.C.R.A Nashville:  GNAA's 2022 January Feature/Cover Sponsor!
