May 16, 2017 Chapter Luncheon
Topic: Using Reserve Studies to Make Special Assessments More Tolerable
About WSCAI Chapter Luncheons
Chapter Luncheons are offered three times a year. They are open to all WSCAI members – homeowners, board members, managers, management company owners and businesses that service the community association industry. The events provide an opportunity for networking with peers, a delicious lunch prepared by the chef’s at Marriott Redmond Town Center and 45-60 minutes of industry-specific education.
Prior to each Luncheon, WSCAI offers a 30-minute New Member Orientation for all members who joined since the previous Luncheon. The Orientation is a brief introduction to WSCAI and allows attendees to meet Chapter Board and Committee Members.
May 16th Luncheon Topic
Let’s face it, “Special Assessment” is a dreaded term.
Fortunately, a reserve study can be a useful tool to not only understand an association’s potential risk of a special assessment, but also to plan funding strategies before, during and after a major reserve expense is incurred. A reserve study can be tailored to reduce the financial burden on homeowners during the pay-off period, while helping to ensure that future special assessments will not be needed.
