WMA is a critical tool for any park owner who wishes to do business in California. Most people in the manufactured housing business understand that WMA deals with legal and legislative issues as well as providing a plethora of forms and educational materials. What is less appreciated, but equally important: the interactive forums WMA provides – the courses, committees and convention that offer owners and managers the opportunity to meet each other and exchange experiences and ideas. The ability to pick up a telephone or send an e-mail regarding a business challenge and get back insights and suggestions is, as the commercial says, priceless. Additionally, because the manufactured housing industry is so specialized, “knowing the right people” is crucial. From brokers and attorneys to paving contractors or utility experts, WMA provides a vital service network. The ongoing success of the California manufactured housing industry is, to a great extent, dependent upon the vibrancy of its state-wide trade association.
I was fighting an uphill battle with an overbearing city government. It wasn’t until I became a member of Western Manufactured Housing Communities Association that the tide started to change. WMA pointed me in the right direction and made a personal introduction to a HCD expert. With HCD and WMA’s help, the issue was resolved in my favor! Thank you WMA.
