The U.S. Women’s History Alliance spearheaded the movement to declare March as National Women’s History Month. The event was established by presidential proclamation to draw attention to and improve the focus on women in historical studies. International Women’s Day began in New York City on March 8, 1857, when female textile workers marched in protest of unfair working conditions and unequal rights for women. Beginning in 1910, March 8 has been observed annually as International Women’s Day.
The theme for 2023 is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories.” This theme spoke to me as I thought about the women who lobby and advocate for the integrity of the community association housing model at state capitols across the country.
Today, join me in honoring 15 women—our professional lobbyists/advocates—who tell our stories of people living and working in amazing communities that people call preferred places to call home. These women successfully break barriers, build consensus, and communicate effectively as they advocate for the integrity and preservation of the community association housing model.
Join me in celebrating these amazing women!
And my right-hand woman, Phoebe Neseth, Esq. director, CAI Government & Public Affairs and The College of Community Associations Lawyers.
We are in good hands with these incredible women representing CAI interests in state legislatures. Thank you, ladies for telling our story. Congratulations to these women and their accomplishments!
