Mary Beth Baker, CAS
I have been an active member of GLAA for over 20 years. During this time I've gone from being an inexperienced leasing consultant who did not know anything about the GLAA to an active member serving on the board of directors. As I worked my way up the ladder, first on the property side and then the vendor side, GLAA was there every step of the way. I took advantage of the classes GLAA offers and earned my CAM and CAS designations. I also became faculty with NAA Education Institute. I have served on or chaired every committee and council except for the legislative committee. That's the best part of GLAA...I am not interested in being on that committee, but someone else is. There is something for everyone. I have found my passion in education. I enjoy teaching classes and seminars and I enjoy learning from others by attending classes. GLAA has given me the opportunity to not only grow my business and develop professionally but to also make life long friends. These friends know that I like to laugh and goof around. GLAA has opportunities for that too! I love the events where I can network, meet new people, and hang out with my colleagues and friends.

I think we are very lucky in Lexington to have an organization like the GLAA. GLAA has provided me with incredible opportunities, including earning the CAM certification with my peers through the NAA. I have attended countless education seminars, and the experiences have made me more confident and qualified in my position. As a property management professional, you also cannot underestimate the value of access to proven and qualified vendors. As an added benefit to owners and managers, GLAA provides fantastic opportunities for team-building, employee engagement, networking and volunteerism. There really is something for everyone in the industry!

Rector Hayden Realtors
I joined the GLAA in 1986. I spent the first 25 years as a regular member. I started in property management. I am now an associate member as a real estate agent with Rector Hayden.
After graduating from the University of Kentucky with a BA in Psychology, I began my career in the multifamily industry. Since that time, I have enjoyed the multitude of benefits that come with GLAA membership. The valuable education and networking opportunities continue to be immeasurable and help me be a better, more prepared representative for my company. During my time as a GLAA member, I have served on the Education and Membership Committees and am the current chairperson of the Awards Committee. I am also looking forward to serving my first 3 year term as a member on the Board of Directors. Any association is only as strong as its membership and I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be a member of the Greater Lexington Apartment Association.

The GLAA, and my service on the Board of Directors for many years, has given me the opportunity to meet and interact with many in the multi-housing community and those vendors who work with them. This has provided me, as a business advisor, many resources to learn and to assist my clients in this industry. Also, the GLAA provides many opportunities to serve and learn about the multi-housing community and the communities in which we live.
