In 1979, a group of apartment owners and managers joined together to form an association dedicated solely to the needs of the multifamily industry on the First Coast. That association was the Jacksonville Apartment Association. The association grew rapidly and formed an alliance with the Apartment Council of the Northeast Florida Builders Association.
In 2003, recognizing that one organization could better serve the industry, the Apartment Council officially joined the Jacksonville Apartment Association. The result was the First Coast Apartment Association (FCAA).
Today, FCAA is the fourth largest apartment association in Florida and continues to grow in both members and services. Its mission is, as it has always been, to promote, inform, and serve the apartment industry through education, legislation, and professional networking.
FCAA provides nationally recognized credential and certification programs that provide its members with the skills needed to succeed in our evolving industry. FCAA also offers a wide array of workshops and seminars in topics like leasing, marketing, landlord tenant law, fair housing, maintenance, technology, and more.
Together with the Florida Apartment Association and the National Apartment Association, FCAA provides legislative advocacy on local, state, and national levels. Together we’ve tackled issues like rent control, emotional support animal abuse, Section 8 voucher reform, maintenance licensing, and other unbalanced housing policies. These issues would be impossible for properties to tackle alone.
The First Coast Apartment Association is resolute in its commitment to provide quality educational programming, ensure a strong voice in legislative affairs, and serve the multifamily needs of the First Coast. Your membership helps us protect the apartment industry in Northeast Florida.
