Supplier Success was...A Success!

Posted By: Jason Loughridge Articles,

WMFHA hosted our largest Supplier Success class ever on August 30th. We had 29 excited and engaged supplier partners join us at our 1Up Training Center in Renton.

The Supplier Success Course offers an overview of the apartment industry and recommends ways that suppliers can maximize partnerships with apartment owners, management companies, and other association members.  It has been developed by successful industry suppliers with years of professional experience. 

The class was facilitated by Sloane Cerbana and Jason Loughridge from WMFHA and our very special guests, Katie Phelan-Costner, Executive VP at 1Up Floors and Phil Cresswell, Regional Director at Security Properties. Katie and Phil brought unique perspectives and stories to help our suppliers be more successful in their roles.

Here was some of the feedback from the class:

"I loved the energy in the room and all of the interaction"

"The facilitators were great and I built so many relationships"

"I walked out with so much more confidence after the class. I love WMFHA!"
