Board Leadership Development Workshop
Spring 2017 & Fall 2017
The Board Leadership Development Workshop offers a great opportunity for a business partner or management company to get in front of dedicated homeowners and board members. This one-day intensive program provides attendees with comprehensive information about association communications, community building policies, and association problem-solving skills. The workshops are held on Saturdays from 9 a.m. – 5 p .m. with a networking breakfast and lunch. Typically, attendance is around 40 people.
Manager Breakfasts with Business Showcase
In 2017, managers will have the opportunity to network and learn as they begin their day. WMCCAI will host two manager breakfasts with a business showcase preceding an informative seminar. Exhibitors will be given an hour to mix and mingle over breakfast with potential clients.
Held at hotels in the D.C. metro area, each breakfast is expected to draw 100 community association professionals. To allow ample opportunity for managers to attend, business partner attendance may be limited. Exhibiting is the only way to guarantee your space. Sign up early as this event is sure to sell out.
In 2017, managers will be encouraged to lunch, learn and linger as WMCCAI will host two manager luncheons, each immediately followed by a happy hour. Sponsors will be recognized both during the luncheon and at the happy hour.
Held at restaurants in the D.C. metro area, each luncheon draws approximately 40 community association managers. To allow ample opportunity for managers to attend, business partner attendance may be limited. Sponsorships are the only way to guarantee your space. Sign up early as these popular sponsorships have sold out in the past.
