The Southeastern Affordable Housing Management Association (SAHMA) is proud to sponsor the SAHMA Excellence Program to honor the on-site management, maintenance, and service coordinator staff that is an integral part of every management company team. Why wait to honor these exceptional professionals and limit it to once a year? The Excellence Program is designed to encourage on-site staff to take the initiative to complete a comprehensive yet easy application. No binders, copies of paperwork or photos. This is an opportunity for the on-site staff to accumulate points for the many things that are done on a daily basis to run an excellent affordable housing community. On-site staff work hard to promote affordable housing by sustaining communities of quality while offering care and a sense of community to our residents.
Submit the application, along with a nominal fee of $50 per application, to SAHMA as soon as it is completed. Applications are accepted anytime! A certificate and pin will be issued to each applicant meeting the minimum requirements. Program members will be automatically entered into a regional contest from which judges will select a winner. Enter all points that apply – the higher the score the better your chances. A $1000 prize will be awarded during the SAHMA Leadership Conference in August of each year. The winner will be proclaimed the SAHMA On-Site Manager, Maintenance Person or Service Coordinator of the Year.
Applications may be submitted throughout the year, but to be eligible for the regional prize, applications must be submitted by June 13th.
There is NO renewal fee associated with the Excellence Program but renewal is required annually. This process is quick and easy and the update form will keep your file current and/or update the total number of points. Any additional points will help you improve your standing to be considered for the annual Manager, Service Coordinator, or Maintenance Person of the Year designation.
Be sure to check off everything that applies to you and your property for the last 12 months. Have you earned a new credential? Did you add a new procedure on your property? Did you volunteer at your 2019 State Meeting? Has your REAC score or MOR score gone up? These and many more items should be considered and indicated on the renewal form as points accumulate each year.
