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.
November 28th Luncheon Topic
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) [pronounced sep-ted] is the “proper design and effective use of the built environment that can lead to a reduction in the fear and incidence of crime, and an improvement in the quality of life.” Simply put, the way that campuses and buildings are designed and built can have a big effect on the amount of crime in these places. Through the proper use of CPTED principals, facilities can be made safer and less prone to crime. This is why, for nearly twenty years, more and more cities are requiring any newly constructed projects go through a CPTED review prior to construction.
Law enforcement agencies around the world have embraced these concepts and worked diligently within their communities to implement these principles. Some cities, such as Federal Way, Des Moines and Seattle have incorporated the CPTED design principles into their city code requirements for project design. Others utilize the concepts to guide businesses and homeowners to assess their environment and its characteristics to reduce opportunities for crime.
