Gale Lively always felt her job was to help people excel in their jobs.
She brought this view to her leadership position as the executive vice president of the Louisville Apartment Association. She served in this position for over 37 years prior to announcing her retirement in 2014. The non-profit represents apartment owners, vendors, and apartment communities in Louisville and advocates on behalf of the apartment industry through legislative lobbying on the local, state and national levels.
Focused on bringing visibility to the association, Gale has served on several committees of the National Apartment Association. In the past she was named executive officer of the year and chosen to be president of the association executive council.
The organization also provides education certificates to those in the industry, and advocates on matters as varied as changes in building codes and rules for sprinklers and smoke detectors in apartment units.
