Networking Strategy

Networking is simply the cultivating of mutually beneficial, give and take, win-win relationships. It works best, however, when emphasizing the 'give' part."          
Bob Burg, Author and Speaker

"The richest people in the world look for and build networks, everyone else looks for work."
Robert T. Kiyosaki, Entrepreneur and Author

“Think about it: everybody you know, everyone that you meet, also know about 250 people. So every time you cultivate a relationship with one new person, you have actually expanded your personal inventory by 250 people, every single time.”       Bob Burg, Author and Speaker

The Members of APHAA have indicated many times over that one of the greatest benefits they see to belonging to this Association is the networking opportunities that it provides.  Providing these networking opportunities is therefore a signficant factor in all the activities of APHAA. 

Meeting and connecting with people who can help you get things done-- is an indispensable skill for a Chief Administrative Officer.  Whether it is through our Discussion Forum, Member Contact Listing, or Peer Support, APHAA's networking opportunities:

  • Allow you to meet people as people
  • Encourage reciprocity, not just "gimme, gimme"
  • Allow you to uplift others and be uplifted
  • Help you stay connected to others
  • Hep you determine how you can develop your own knowledge and skills

Regular attendance at APHAA meetings/events is likely to reap greater, long term benefits than periodic participation, as it allows you to make new acquaintances and refresh older friendships. These events may be seen as places to share practises and present some of your latest thinking to the other participants.

This type of networking is essential to developing your abilities and reputation as a Housing Administrator, to enhancing visibility and to gain useful feedback on your thinking and strategies.
