Diamond Achievement Awards
AAGM celebrates the Industry’s top professionals at the Annual Diamond Achievement Awards. We honor the Industry’s best with award categories such as Best Landscape, Outstanding Maintenance Team, Leasing Professional of the Year, and Property Manager of the Year. Over 500 members attend the annual event. The committee is responsible for planning and assisting with the all aspects of the awards banquet. This includes encouraging nomination submissions, promoting the event, and assisting the AAGM staff and committee chair with event responsibilities.

AAGM offers a variety of educational opportunities for members (see calendar of events). The Education Committee plans and executes educational programs by securing speakers, sponsors, and scheduling the educational calendar of events. Education is planned for the entire year so committee members should be prepared to meet several times during the year.
The Golf Scramble is one of the most enjoyable events that AAGM offers its members. It’s one of the best opportunities for corporate and property personnel, as well as suppliers, to become acquainted and to build valuable relationships while enjoying a relaxed, easy-going game of golf. This committee plans and assists with the annual Golf Scramble, including promoting team participation and volunteering the day of the event. The committee meets 4-5 times to plan the event.
