  Mr. SESSIONS. Madam Speaker, I rise today to honor Ron Shelton, 
elected Chairman of the Board for 2009 for the National Apartment 
Association (NAA).
  Ron has been a part of the multi-family housing industry for twenty-
eight years. His career began with Lincoln Property Company where he 
started as a part-time grounds person while attending the University of 
Texas at Arlington. He quickly moved up the ranks into a leadership 
role that oversaw properties in Dallas and Houston before leaving to 
become Vice President of Operations for SBC Realty Company in 1989. 
Since then, he dedicated thirteen years to the Apartment and Investment 
Management Company (AIMCO) and subsequently moved over to Amalgamated 
Management Corporation.
  Ron is committed to quality rental housing and meeting the housing 
needs of the public. He has served in numerous roles such as chairing 
the New Technology Task Force, President of the Apartment Association 
of Greater Dallas and the NAA's Education Institute. His career 
exemplifies his enthusiasm for NAA's mission. As Chairman Elect, Ron's 
hard work, skills, and insight garnered from his many years of 
experience will greatly benefit the NAA.
  Madam Speaker, I ask my esteemed colleagues to join me in expressing 
our best wishes to him on this special day.
