CASH Goes National

CASH Goes National

For more than a decade Consumer Advocacy and Support for Homeowners (CASH) Society has acted as a housing consumer watchdog and public educator, the only volunteer organization of its type in BC.
What started out as an informal organization focused on the leaky condo disaster, quickly turned into an incorporated society dealing with the large number of homeowner issues, issues that continue to be reported throughout BC. British Columbian homeowners have been visiting the CASH Society website looking for answers and help. 
 For ten years, the website had a minimum of 10,000+ hits per month. The website traffic demonstrated the public need for information - emails, comments and inquiries demonstrated the tremendous need for true homeowner protection and changes in the residential construction industry.
Since participating with a national housing organization, CPBH (more later), CASH directors have recognized BC homeowners required a bigger, more consolidated effort to better achieve its goals.
On March 31, 2011, the CASH Society Board of Directors unanimously passed a motion for dissolution and that the assets be transferred to Canadians for Properly Built Homes.
CPBH is a Canadian not-for-profit, national consumer protection organization that operates with a volunteer Board of Directors, supported by a volunteer Advisory Council including industry experts. CASH Society’s Past President, John Grasty, a REALTOR® with Prudential Sterling Realty, will continue to sit as a CPBH advisory council member, a position he has held since 2007. CASH Society has been represented on the CPBH advisory council since 2005.
