We all seek financial security and attempt to make wise decisions regarding our investments. Unfortunately, in these times of uncertainty, the causes for concern seem overwhelming. We are inundated with alarming news on a daily basis regarding the ongoing global pandemic, climate change, economic turmoil, and an increasingly divisive political landscape.   

RHAWA’s Annual Economic Summit clears the noise and focuses on what matters to you as a housing provider in Washington State. Working together, our panel of experts will provide you with up-to-date information based on practical knowledge and experience in their various areas of expertise. We will begin with a coordinated presentation on the economic outlook for Washington housing providers, including reviewing recent changes in various aspects of law and the anticipated impact on property investors. Then the panel will discuss questions from the audience, both live and pre-submitted.
