RHAWA Launching All-New Manufactured Housing Communities Membership
Seattle, WA – The Rental Housing Association of Washington (RHAWA) is excited to announce a new business line as we expand our membership benefits to a new segment of the rental housing industry – Manufactured Housing Communities (MHC). The new RHAWA MHC membership launches December 2020 and extends all RHAWA’s membership benefits to owners and managers of manufactured housing communities across Washington State.
“Strategically, entering the MHC space fits directly with the RHAWA Board’s vision for growth and expanding our footprint in the rental housing industry,” said Sean Flynn, RHAWA’s Board President. “Under the constant pressure of aggressive and damaging regulation, RHAWA brings together two submarkets of housing that share more in common than ever before. Our advocacy efforts will be strengthened by greater representation. Our presence and resources will ensure that all aspects of the rental housing industry have a strong voice and a coordinated advocacy strategy in Olympia. RHAWA celebrates the next big step and I welcome MHC members and affiliated vendors.”
Expanding to serve manufactured housing communities brings all RHAWA’s industry-leading membership benefits to the MHC segment, including advocacy, leases and forms, an attorney line, and education and events. Additionally, RHAWA’s benefits are all delivered virtually and include ONDEMAND learning, our Connect discussion forum, full-service screening, RMAP online screening and leasing portal, and our built-out, online Advocacy Center.
The launch of the new MHC membership follows a steady build-out of new and enhanced membership benefits and online platforms over the past two years to expand how RHAWA can interact and support its membership.
“I could not be prouder of our Board’s vision to strengthen and grow the association, as well as the focus and dedication of our staff to pull this effort together. We will continue to provide and grow the resources RHAWA members have come to expect from our organization, while having a greater market impact and a voice in the future of rental housing in our state. Our industry benefits when we share a common voice and we are thrilled to welcome MHC owners and operators into the association as an equal partner and a key solution to our state’s housing supply needs,” said Sean Martin, Executive Director of RHAWA.
