Every other year, delegates are appointed to the CAI Legislative Action Committees. The goal of the appointment process is to provide CAI Legislative Action Committees with a diverse group of CAI members to carry out the public policy interests of CAI membership for the community association housing model and to provide collaboration between the chapters, the headquarters office, and the membership. The organizational structure and appointment process is outlined in the CAI LAC Operational Guidelines.
There are two ways in which a CAI member may come to serve on a LAC:
Chapter Delegates – appointed and approved by the chapter as a chapter delegate. The chapter Board of Directors will appoint six delegates to the Pennsylvania LAC and one delegate to the New Jersey LAC. Chapter Delegates are expected to sign and comply with the Chapter Delegate Statement of Expectations.
At-Large Delegates – the LAC will appoint up to 14 at large delegates.
All Delegates must be CAI members in good standing at the time of their appointment and must be current on all CAI financial obligations including payment of the Advocacy Support Fee.
Important Rules Governing the LAC Structure & Appointments Process
Each LAC will consist of a minimum of six (6) delegates and a maximum of 20 delegates.
CAI’s membership represents a diverse set of individuals who are homeowner volunteer leaders, community association managers, and business partners serving community associations. To ensure a balanced voice, there is a rule whereby one membership category shall not have a majority on any LAC.
No more than one person, per company, per membership category may serve on any one state LAC; a company is any entity, partnership, corporation, or business association where there is a single ownership structure.
To avoid apparent conflicts of interest, all Chapter and At Large delegates are required to disclose any organizations, associations, or businesses that conduct business or compete in any way, with CAI or the LAC.
