Want to attend the 2017 NAA Student Housing Conference & Exposition but need to get your boss’ sign-off? Use the below “justification letter” to share with your supervisor explaining all of the benefits you’ll gain by attending.

Dear <add supervisors name>
I would like your approval to attend the 2017 NAA Student Housing Conference & Exposition, February 14-15 at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago. I believe the event will enable me to bring back new ideas and innovative strategies specifically to our student housing interests. I will also be able to network with other experts and colleagues, and meet with current and potential suppliers in a timely and cost effective manner. All of the educational sessions are tailored to the student housing market and cover topics on reducing costs, improving efficiency and increasing performance. The speaker presentations are facilitated by both industry experts and multifamily housing professionals who have faced similar challenges.

The following sessions would be beneficial to our existing performance improvement goals:
• Example #1
• Example #2
• Example #3

I have estimated the total expense to be <please add your airfare, roundtrip taxi to hotel @ $50, hotel @ $160 plus tax & resort fee per night, and choose the correct conference registration fee here:>

To ensure we get the most out of my participation, I will plan to submit a report post-conference, including an executive summary and detailed action plan.

Thank you for considering this request.
