"There are many ways that WMFHA has a positive effect on the apartment industry in Washington state. For me, the value has been in making new connections and learning about new trends at events. For you, maybe it’s a new vendor you meet at a networking event that helps save you money on a capital project. Maybe it’s a best practice you will learn at a leasing class that helps you close more sales or a lawsuit that you avoid because you attended a Fair Housing Course. And maybe it’s just a smile or laugh that you have when you run into an old friend at a Tapas and Topics networking event. Whatever the effect for you, it will be positive and you’ll be glad that you got involved with WMFHA!"
