NOTICE OF CHANGE OF LOCATION OF

ANNUAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS

TO BE HELD ON MAY 19, 2020 AT 12:30 PM CDT

 

To Our Fellow Shareholders:

 

In response to the public health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and our priority to support the health and wellbeing of our shareholders, associates and their families, NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that our Board of Directors has determined to change the location of the 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the "Annual Meeting”) of Mid-America Apartment Communities, Inc. ("MAA”) to a virtual-only format. Shareholders will not be able to attend the Annual Meeting physically.  The previously announced date and time of the meeting, May 19, 2020 at 12:30 p.m. Central Daylight Time, is unchanged.

 

As described in the previously distributed proxy materials, you are entitled to attend the Annual Meeting if you hold a legal proxy for the meeting or were a shareholder of record at the close of business on March 13, 2020, the record date for the meeting. Using any internet accessible device, you can attend the Annual Meeting by registering at www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/MAA2020 starting at 12:20 p.m. Central Daylight Time on May 19, 2020. To register, you will be required to enter the unique 16-digit control number included on your proxy card, voter instruction form or notice of internet availability of proxy materials. If you hold your shares through a brokerage, bank or other institutional account and have questions on how to obtain your control number, you should contact the financial institution where your shares are held.

 

You will be able to ask questions and vote during the virtual-only meeting by following the instructions available on the meeting website during the meeting. MAA encourages you to use your previously distributed proxy card, voter instruction form, or any of the methods outlined in the proxy materials to vote your shares and submit your proxy in advance of the Annual Meeting, whether or not you plan to attend. The proxy card included with the previously-distributed proxy materials will not be updated to reflect the change from a physical meeting to a virtual-only meeting but may continue to be used to vote shares in connection with the Annual Meeting.

 

 

By order of the Board of Directors,
