The Tulsa Apartment Association Zenith Awards is a time for us to Celebrate Our Stars and recognize the best of the best in the Northeastern Oklahoma rental housing industry. As you are preparing to attend this event, there are a few things we would like you to keep in mind.
While we want everyone to have fun, please remember the reason we are all gathered together—to honor the hard work, dedication, and achievements of our nominees. During the awards presentation please be courteous to the nominees, and the other guests around you, by being attentive to the emcee and keeping your conversations to a minimum. With over 1,000 in attendance conversations can quickly drown out the awards presentation!
The Zenith Awards is a professional event, so make sure you remember to conduct yourself in a professional
manner. We only say this because we have your best interest at heart, and we want to make sure you are
able to be among your supervisors, co-workers, and peers the next morning without any regrets about the
happenings from the night before. With that being said, we would like to leave you with some wise words from the makers of our beverages —Drink Responsibly.
We look forward to seeing everyone on November 17th as we see celebrate the best of the best!
