Renewing Your Professional Designation
Designations & Renewals
The Austin Apartment Association (AAA) offers five nationally recognized professional designations which are developed by the National Apartment Association Education Institute (NAAEI). After completing your coursework, project (if applicable), and exam, you become a NAAEI Professional Designate. As a designate, you must renew your designation by paying your renewal dues and acquiring Continuing Education Credits (CEC). If you do not renew your designation, it becomes invalid and you are no longer recognized as a NAAEI Professional Designate. By renewing each year, you have proven that you have participated in continuing education within the industry.
