Convenient Location!

This year, we're returning to host the SWTS at the same charming Cedarbrook Lodge near SeaTac. Last year attendees raved about the beautiful lodge which offered warm rustic scenery, delectable cuisine, and, most importantly, a day of education and fun.


The Cedarbrook Lodge, easily accessible by I-5 or Hwy 99, is located at 18525 36th Ave S, SeaTac, WA. They can boast IACC certification, large floor-to-ceiling windows for natural light, free on-site parking, and delicious food for the entire day. Doors will open at 8:00 AM and when you arrive there will be coffee, tea, and continental breakfast waiting in the vendor hall before the conference formally commences.

What's included?

This year, we kickstart the workshop at 9:00 AM with a captivating Keynote panel discussion featuring RHAWA Board President Sean Flynn, Kaitlyn Jackson, and other esteemed experts who will provide a comprehensive legislative update from the 2024 State Legislative Session. They will cover crucial topics, including decisions made by local government councils that directly affect you as a small housing provider, and offer valuable insights into what lies ahead for the rest of the year.

Following the panel discussion, our breakout sessions will begin, organized into three separate tracks:

  • Property Management,
  • Tenant Law
  • Business.

There will be three one-hour breakout sessions for each track, providing 12 hours of education delivered by RHAWA's most popular instructors. To ensure you don't miss out on valuable insights, we'll provide attendees with presentation slides and audio recordings of each session for future reference.

It's a perfect blend of entertainment and knowledge, making learning about rental housing engaging and enjoyable for everyone!
