THE PRESTIGE AWARDS
The Greater Cincinnati Northern Kentucky Apartment Association’s 2015 Prestige Awards are a celebration of all the accomplishments our members have achieved in the multi-family housing industry. In an encore performance of previous Prestige Awards – which have won national recognition as winners of the coveted National Apartment Association Paragon Award of Excellence – we are once again seeking your help to make it bigger and better than before.
The Prestige Awards is a competition among our members as well as an awards banquet to honor the best in the multifamily housing industry. The Call for Entries containing the list of categories, judging criteria and entry requirements will be inserted in an upcoming issue of the Apartment Advantage and will be available to download from www.gcnkaa.org.
The Prestige Awards 2015 – an event 10 years in the making – will be held on Friday, November 6, 2015 at 6:00 pm at the Hyatt Hotel, downtown. Comparable to the Grammy Awards, this black-tie preferred affair will host dining, entertainment and the fantastic Prestige Awards program.
Your invitation will be mailed out in September 2015, but mark your calendar today! If you have any questions, please call the office at 513 407-8612.
