2019 Advocacy Summit

​CAI’s annual Advocacy Summit in Washington, D.C. on October 23 is an opportunity for an unparalleled experience to represent the 70 million Americans living and working in community associations. Together, we’ll meet with members of Congress and their staff; we’ll advocate for our federal legislative priorities; and you’ll have an opportunity to network with fellow advocates from across the country. You have the industry expertise and stories to share in these important meetings about our key issues, including: assistance animals, disaster recovery, flood insurance, short-term rentals, and more.
