Who We Are.
The Washington Multi-Family Housing Association is the Washington State chapter of the National Apartment Association. We are a collection of over 100 Property Management companies and owners of multifamily properties, with 1000 Apartment Communities representing 185,000 apartment homes, and 200 industry suppliers working together to promote and enrich the multifamily housing industry in Washington state.
One of our primary objectives is to actively monitor and influence the legislative process. WMFHA has full time lobbyists representing the multifamily housing industry in Olympia and Seattle. As an affiliate of the National Apartment Association (NAA), and through a joint legislative alliance with the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC), we are able to speak for you in regulatory and legislative bodies at the federal and state government levels. We make sure you stay informed of regulatory requirements that affect you and your business.
In addition, WMFHA has a Political Action Committee (PAC), which raises money and works to help get elected those public officials who will work with us on multifamily housing issues to affect favorable change in the lawmaking process.
Our vision is to promote professionalism through education. In alliance with the NAA, we are privileged to offer nationally recognized professional designation programs. These programs are widely respected for their comprehensive approach to career development in our industry. With some study and hard work, you and/or your employees can earn professional credentials in multi-site property supervision (CAPS), apartment management (CAM), leasing (NALP), maintenance (CAMT) or as an industry supplier (CAS).
WMFHA offers numerous opportunities for you to network, exchange ideas, and form relationships with other professionals in the multifamily housing industry. These offerings include informative meetings, conferences, trade show exhibitions and social events. Each affords you an opportunity to strengthen your connections and improve your knowledge. Most gratifying are our events supporting charitable organizations in our communities.
We invite you to be a part of this tremendous group of industry professionals, to contribute your talents and experience, give back to the industry and really make a difference!
The Washington Multi-Family Housing Association is a statewide organization committed to:
- Advocating for legislation favorable to our industry.
- Providing educational opportunities to promote career development.
- Celebrating and supporting all facets of the multifamily industry.
For multifamily property owners, managers and suppliers, WMFHA is the professional trade association that advances the interests of the multifamily industry because we are connected and in communication with stakeholders at the local, state and national level.
Advocate. Educate. Celebrate.
