The GKA's are BACK!

Updated Award Categories | Simplified Online Nominations | Amplified Sponsorship Opportunities

Mallory Hoffmeyer HeadshotAs Chair of the Special Events Committee I am thrilled to report that, after a one year hiatus, the 13th Annual Golden Key Awards are back again this December! The Special Events Committee elves have been busy tinkering with everything from the award categories to simplifying the online nomination process.

Our collective goal is to make this the best awards gala yet and provide AAGO members the opportunity to recognize the efforts of our hard working teams over the last two years.

We are putting the finishing touches on the online nomination forms, but here is a sneak preview of some of the new categories for 2021...

New Award Categories Added for 2021:

Best Online Campaign of the Year

Emerging Leader of the Year

Mixed Use Development of the Year

NAAEI Designate of the Year

Multifamily Development of the Year

Resident Experience Program of the Year

Supplier Technician of the Year

Online nominations open on August 1st and will ONLY be open until August 31st, 2021

Let's face it, our professional lives are complicated enough... So, this year the online nomination process will be streamlined, less burdensome, and better yet... FREE! AAGO is waiving the $25 online nomination fee this year, because we do not want tight budgets to be a barrier to recognizing your superstar teams. We will be launching a revamped Online Nomination "FAQ" page very soon where you can review required information, potential categories, and better understand how judges will evaluate the nominations. 


Lastly, if you are looking for ways to expand your brand or demonstrate your company's support of the central Florida apartment industry then please consider sponsoring this event! Sponsors are recognized throughout the event, and our top two tiers of sponsorship including the opportunity to present, live from the stage, the award category of your choice (along with many other perks). The support of our sponsors helps us provide a first-glass, glamorous, evening at an affordable price to attend.
