Membership Benefits

The WCAHA provides a unified voice for our business concerns on the local and state government levels.  By coming together we are able to create a central organization to communicate our questions and concerns. There are many benefits to a WCAHA memerbship:

  • Providing a unified voice for our business concerns on local & state government levels.
  • Local: We make sure that our members are aware of up-coming borough meetings by posting them on our website (calendar) and in our newsletters. We alert members through emails and faxes of any issues of importance that may arise. (i.e.: The Trash Removal Issue: WCAHA alerted members of a Public Works meeting addressing this issue. As a result, several members attended to voice their opinions on the matter and a committee was then formed to address this important issue.)
    On a State level, we are members of PROA, Pennsylvania Residential Owners Association, which lobbies in Harrisburg on issues of our concern. ie: wage attachments, blight bills, eviction proceedings, etc. Call Peggy, our Administrative Assistant for a member password to access benefits on their website www.PROAssoc.org. This includes their newsletter, criminal checks and rental advertising.
  • We offer discount programs through some of our sponsors. Contact Peggy for a discount card for Sherwin Williams paints and supplies and Staples for your office supplies. When you use our sponsors please let them know that you are a member of WCAHA!
  • You'll be invited to our Annual Members' Meeting in April and our Fall Social in October. Both meetings are held in the beautiful West Chester Golf & Country Club.
