Consider Giving Just 10% of your R.O.I.I. Return
to the Affordable Housing Council of Central WA
CWHBA and BIAW have been incredibly effective this year keeping permit offices open and getting residential construction back to work before any other industry in Washington.

That work could have accomplished so much more had the right elected officials been in power. This year’s elections will be critical for our industry. Help contribute to electing politicians who are pro-building and pro-business by committing to giving 10% of your ROII Return to the AHCCW.
A Message from Greg Lane at BIAW:
Want to get invovled with the AHCCW but not sure how? Reach out to Jake Mayson, Government Affairs Director at jmayson@cwhba.org or 505-500-5521. AHCCW meetings are scheduled the fourth Wednesday of each month at 3pm.
