CAI Launches Grassroots Advocacy Program

11/16/1998  -  Alexandria, VA

More than 42 million Americans are affected by legislation and regulation that have an impact on condominium, cooperative and homeowner association operations and governance. The Community Associations Institute's new Community Associations Advocacy Network (CAAN), launched at the Institute's 45th National Conference in Arlington, Va., Oct. 29-31, will help homeowners and professionals shape the outcome of more than two dozen issues of concern to the nation's 205,000 community associations today.

CAAN is a national team of community association homeowners and professionals who volunteer to develop relationships with and educate government officials about all aspects of community associations. From bankruptcy reform to new FCC antenna rules, flood insurance availability to taxation, CAI is the only national organization advocating community association interests before legislatures, regulatory bodies and the courts. CAAN volunteers will help support, oppose or tailor legislative and regulatory proposals to best suit the interests of community associations through a "first alert network," which will provide issue summaries, talking points, sample letters and briefings.
