Community Associations Day (CA Day)
Washington’s largest educational conference and trade[more]
As a new Condominium Board member, I attended my first CAI training session, "ABC's, A BASIC COURSE", April 1999. Following that session, our condo association approved our very first Policy Resolution, "...shall become member of CAI to help them function in the most effective manner possible and funds for attendance shall be placed in the Annual Budget" Since that time, each year we have had one to three members in attendance at various "ongoing education" seminars. The information we received, 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.

WSCAI takes its commitment to education and advocacy seriously. It is, quite simply, the best professional organization in Washington State for helping homeowners, their board members, and the people who serve them. Our law firm is honored to have regularly volunteered our time for years to WSCAI to edit and write articles, and lead and teach its members, and in doing so we derive the kinds of tangible and intangible benefits that make us better attorneys and better people. Member since 1995. Past president and board member. Past chair of the Legislative Action Committee. Present fan.
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.
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.
