Welcome To WSCAI!

WSCAI is the Washington State chapter of Community Associations Institute (CAI). CAI is the only national organization dedicated to fostering vibrant, responsive, competent community associations. Our mission is to assist community associations in promoting harmony, community, and responsible leadership. We believe that providing board members, managers, and homeowners the knowledge to better run their associations, they can turn “owners” into “neighbors,” increasing harmony, and leading to more prosperous, safer communities.

Reserves & Inflation

THE CONSUMER PRICE INDEX IS at a 40-year high of ~ 7% as of this writing. As we all know, that’s a big deal.

Blog: What To Know About Mold - April 2022 Chapter Happenings Sponsor - Superior Cleaning & Restoration: A COIT Services Company

What To Know About Mold

We do not recommend handling mold by yourself. Hiring a professional mold remediation service to get rid of mold is the only way to ensure maximum safety. While there is no substitute for hiring cleaning professionals to handle mold inside your home, if you absolutely must do it yourself, be sure to wear goggles, gloves, and a HEPA face mask.
