Attention Business PartnersThis workshop is designed just for you!

Whether you’re a seasoned community association industry veteran, new to the industry, or have others in your office that might benefit from learning more, this dynamic workshop will help you better understand the unique differences between community associations and apartments, how the role of the community association manager differs from that of a multi-family property manager, and better understand the inner structure of community associations and the process for bid approval and expenditures.

You’ll also learn how economic and other market conditions can impact the industry, how to recognize business resources and leverage other WSCAI partnerships to identify new business opportunities, best position your products and services, maximize your WSCAI membership, and get some tips and tricks on how to be successful at CA Day and other industry events.

There will also be an opportunity to hear ideas from attendees and network virtually with other Business Partners.
