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.
