What are People Saying About WSCAI

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!

Nancy K. Cannan CIRMS

Retired ~ Executive Vice President – Marketing, CAU (Community Association Underwriters)

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.

Ken Harer

Attorney , Condominium Law Group

As the 2008 WSCAI Chapter President and a member since 2003, I belong to WSCAI because it is provides resources and educational opportunities for people living in a Condo or HOA, and for professionals working in our industry. It’s key to surround yourself with WSCAI industry professionals to assist you in the management of your multi-million dollar corporation, otherwise known as your Condo or HOA. Giving back to the community in which I live and work is important to me.

Gil Price

Executive Director, Condominium Law Group

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.ting tools we have!

“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.”

Catherine Kuhn, CPA

CPA, Cagianut & Company

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.

Beverly Ahnert

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.
