The information we receive, and the printed materials and magazines, have assisted our association in becoming the best we can be. It is the feeling of our membership and Board of Directors that on-going education is very important to the success of our association. Currently, I am facilitating a group we call The Board Roundtable. There at ten Board members, each from a different condo/homeowners association, we meet once a month for two hours, share all kinds of ideas with each other, reinforce the information we receive from CAI, and all feel it is very worthwhile to our own association.
Homeowner / The Ranch Condominium Association
Having been a Condo Board member for over 13 years and having earned the CMCA designation, I still know it’s beneficial to attend WSCAI’s educational seminars. I learn new things and get a chance to interact with other Board members who face similar challenges as a volunteer in their communities.

“We want to contribute to the industry from which we benefit. Our mantra is “Education” – of the boards, the managers, and our staff. We enjoy teaching at WSCAI events and have met wonderful people. And ultimately, we are successful when our clients and staff are educated.”

Membership participation and advertising as a member of WSCAI is an effective way to connect with the board members that make buying decisions for their associations and the community association managers who influence those decisions. It’s one of the best marketing tools we have!

I find my membership in WSCAI to be a rewarding experience in multiple ways. The social aspect of membership makes for new friendships and enjoyable times. The business networking offers a kind of insurance policy against changes in the marketplace and employment. The educational opportunities afford me more confidence in my decision making and thus less stress in my life.

Community Association Manager / Conrad Properties
I have been a member of WSCAI for more than 18 years, as a construction consultant, and as an attorney serving community associations with construction litigation, collections, and general counsel needs. I believe in this organization because of the shared resources it provides to the board members and managers of these communities, and the education it provides to help them manage the millions of dollars of property they are in charge of, and to serve their membership.
As an owner within a Community Association and service provider to the industry, I know of no better resource than CAI. Our affiliation and participation for nearly 30 years on a local and national level has been quite rewarding; for our profession, yes, but most of all by the quality of people we’ve encountered over the years within this volunteer based organization. It is estimated that 20% of our state’s population resides within a community association and I’m thankful CAI is there to lead us into the future.

WSCAI has been an outstanding resource for us during the last ten years. It has offered many excellent timely classes that have resolved many problems within our condominium community. The fantastic employees at WSCAI have always responded promptly to any question that we have asked. I am proud to be a member of WSCAI.
