CAI has 37 state Legislative Action Committees (LACs), made up of volunteers representing over 74.2 million Americans living in homeowners associations, condominiums, and housing cooperatives. LAC members include homeowner leaders, community managers, and business partners who work together to advance CAI’s legislative agenda at the state level. The Federal LAC supports CAI’s federal advocacy efforts in Congress, administrative agencies, and other regulatory bodies. 

We are excited to introduce the chairs of the LACs for 2024, who are responsible for leading and coordinating the activities of the LACs in their states. They also communicate with CAI staff and members and represent CAI in meetings with legislators and other stakeholders. These leaders are passionate about community associations and committed to making a positive difference in the legislative arena. We are grateful for their service and proud to have them as part of our team. 

Here are the faces you need to know for 2024 CAI Legislative Action Committees:
