Guide for Effective Advocacy

​Each day, decisions affecting the authority for community associations are decided. These decisions are made by legislatures, agencies and courts in local, state and federal jurisdictions. As the national advocate for community associations, Community Associations Institute (CAI) is committed to encouraging the active participation of community association advocates in helping define community association law and policy.

As part of our commitment to advocacy, CAI provides guidance to develop advocates as well as the tools to maximize their effectiveness. All such efforts reflect CAI’s ded​ication to representing the government and public affairs interests of CAI members.

Advocating may seem daunting for those new to the world of advocacy. However, with proper guidance and practice anyone can become an effective advocate. This section will help you develop your testimony and skills at advocating. Please use these tips whether you are testifying in front of a committee, meeting with an official or staff in person, or writing your official or presenting written testimony.​
