DIAMOND AWARDS - Due July 17th! (Get form HERE)

Every year the GNAA Awards Committee reaches out to the membership for nominations for the Diamond Awards. Diamond Awards recognize the efforts of our members, and the unique contributions they make, to the multifamily housing industry in Nashville. It recognizes their contributions through their professional work and volunteerism to the Greater Nashville Apartment Association.

The award is based on member activity from July 1 of the previous year until June 30 of the present year. Nominations are due by July 17, 2020, to allow time for recognition at the Diamond Awards luncheon and to give the nominees time to fill out their information packet for judging consideration.

Once all packets are received, the Awards Committee convenes and goes over each nominee’s packet, grading them on a standard set of criteria that has been shared with the nominees. These criteria include several GNAA events attended, committee involvement, etc. It is a great honor to be nominated for these prestigious awards!

Below are the categories in which GNAA members can be nominated for a Diamond Award:

  • Multifamily Executive of the Year (This is awarded to an individual on the Management side that is employed at a Regional level or above.)
  • Management Professional of the Year
  • Management Company of the Year
  • Assistant Manager of the Year
  • Leasing Professional of the Year
  • Supplier Professional of the Year
  • Maintenance Professional of the Year

The Diamond Awards also recognize the volunteer efforts of our members with special awards to each of the GNAA member categories. These awards are given to GNAA members who are active with our Community Service Committee, community service events, and other special events.

  • Management Volunteer of the Year
  • Supplier Volunteer of the Year
  • Maintenance Volunteer of the Year


The GNAA Service Awards also recognize the volunteer efforts of our members that contribute their time and efforts in our committees. Each month one GNAA member is chosen from a committee to receive the GNAA Service Award for that month. These winners receive their awards at one of our General Membership Meetings and are also called up to the stage at the annual Awards Gala to be recognized. Get engaged in a committee and you could go home a winner!
