Several members of the HOA Team at Hanis Irvine Prothero PLLC attended Community Association Day on Saturday, September 26, 2015. Held at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, CA Day is WSCAI’s largest educational event of the year for Association Board members and Community Association managers. HIP was one of approximately 130 vendors who hosted booths as part of the trade show, which gave us the opportunity to interact face to face with many of our Association clients and other industry leaders.
HIP attorney Jorge Ramos forms new partnership between Communities In Schools and the SKCBA
Communities In Schools (CIS) is the nation’s leading dropout prevention program. They current have 12 affiliates in Washington State with 5 serving King County.
Communities in schools and South King County Bar Association announce new partnership. Each affiliate has a partnership with their school district and through their Site Coordinator model work to connect students to outside community resources. Teaming with Communities In Schools allows us (as individuals or as firms) to make quick connections to support schools in our community.
All 5 King County CIS affiliates (Seattle, Renton, Kent, Auburn and Federal Way) are on board to help connect us into to schools. There are many ways to help: Serve as a mentor, or tutor; host an intern or provide a job shadow. Dee Klem of the CIS Kent office has agreed to be our point person. If you or anyone you know is interested in learning more contact Dee at firstname.lastname@example.org
