Advocacy is Everyone’s Business
The resources on this page will help members of CAI advocate on behalf of your communities. On this page you can find your legislators, find data and facts on community associations, and find links to relevant statutes.
More than 74.1 million Americans reside in homeowners associations, condominium communities, cooperatives and other planned communities. All of these communities—more than 347,000 nationally—share a few essential goals—preserving the nature and character of the community, providing services and amenities to residents, protecting property values and meeting the established expectations of owners.
Pennsylvania Joint State Government Commission Study
The Pennsylvania Joint State Government Commission released its report on Common Interest Ownership Communities in late December 2011, and while the commission’s report falls short in certain goals outlined in the legislature’s resolution, the report is full of useful information and recommendations for community associations and policymakers in Pennsylvania. The PA General Assembly adopted a resolution directing the Joint State Government Commission to update its report in 2022. The updated report was released on March 28, 2023. Visit the links below.
