CAI’s Government & Public Affairs Committee promotes the organizations’ public policies and throught professional staff represents the interests of community association residents and professionals before the United States Congress, federal agencies, and a multitude of other policy setting bodies.

Additionally, as state and local governments grow more active, national staff works in close coordination with CAI’s state Legislative Action Committees (LACs) and local chapters to protect members’ interests before law and regulation makers closer to home.
