Thank you for your interest in joining the Tulsa Apartment Association (TAA).
The Tulsa Apartment Association was established in 1976 to represent the rental housing industry in northeastern Oklahoma. Over the years our membership has grown and today we have over 500 members and represent over 50,000 rental homes.
The Tulsa Apartment Association has two membership types - owner/management company member or supplier member.
An owner/management company member, owns and/or operates rental housing. Owner/management dues use the following formula for calculating annual membership dues investment:
$175.00 flat fee
+ $ 2.25 per unit (for each unit/rental home up to 1,000 units)
+ $ 1.75 per unit (for each unit/rental home over 1,000 units)
= Total annual membership investment
+ $ 50.00 application fee for new members
In calculating annual membership dues, owner/management members must include the total number of units/rental homes in the Tulsa Apartment Association territory that they own and/or manage. TAA territory includes the following counties in northeastern Oklahoma: Adair, Cherokee, Craig, Creek, Delaware, Haskell, Pawnee, Mayes,
McIntosh, Muskogee, Nowata, Okfuskee, Okmulgee, Osage, Ottawa, Rogers, Sequoyah, Tulsa, Wagoner, Washington.
A supplier member is a vendor that provides products and/or services to the rental housing industry. Supplier membership dues are $375 annually, and there is a $50 application fee for new members.
All members agree to abide by the Tulsa Apartment Association bylaws and code of ethics. Click here to view the TAA Bylaws.
