Condo and HOA Buzz

At Barker Martin, we appreciate the importance of education in the community association industry. That's why we are active members of Community Association Institute ("CAI") and Oregon and Washington Community Association Managers ("OWCAM"), where our attorneys serve on multiple committees and often speak at seminars and courses. We also offer our own seminars for managers and board members, and team up with other business partners in providing additional classes and webinars. These events provide a great opportunity for not only the participants, but they help us keep our fingers on the pulse of the industry.

Recently, we took our education effort to the next level by committing to a weekly radio show on Alternative Radio 1150 KKNW called "Condo & HOA Buzz." The show features a mix of education, entertainment, guests and association news. It's "all things and everything related to condominium and homeowner association living." The show is co-hosted by Duncan Kirk, Senior Vice President with HUB International, and me, with regular appearances from my partners at Barker Martin.

From Everett to Puyallup you can listen live on Wednesday afternoons from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. on KKNW 1150 am. For our Oregon clients and managers, and those outside of the Seattle metro region, you can stream the show live via:  

This week marks the 13th week the "Buzz" has been on the air. We've had tremendous guests, including association managers, insurers, contractors, reserve study professionals, bankers, and many more. All of the shows are archived and can be accessed at:

Feel free to join our Facebook page for regular updates and highlights, or simply tune in and listen. We'd also love to hear your suggestions on topics or guests. The team at Barker Martin remains committed to continuing professional education, and look forward to your input.
