Support CAI's Legislative Efforts through our Silent Auctions

Oct 22, 2013

CAI’s Pennsylvania Legislative Action Committee (PA LAC) raises over $50,000 a year in order to remain vigilant on behalf of community associations. Silent Auctions coming up at our holiday parties will help the LAC reach its fundraising goal for the year.  Consider donating an item to the LAC’s Silent Auction!

PA-LAC needs to raise funds to support CAI’s legislative advocacy efforts.The primary goal of the PA-LAC is to monitor legislation and educate state lawmakers on behalf of community associations.  The LAC is proactive in introducing and advocating for legislation that is beneficial to community associations and are equally active in opposing legislation that may be adverse to the interest of community associations.

In the current legislative session, delegates to the PA LAC have reviewed nearly a dozen pieces of legislation that could impact the governing and management of community associations in Pennsylvania. The LAC hosted two advocacy days at the state capitol in Harrisburg in 2013  and has held ongoing negotiations with the PA State Association of Township Supervisors to come up with a compromise to cure an issue affecting community associations as a result of a court case that arose in York County. The LAC is also pressing for adoption of Bills that would provide tax credits for municipal services for community associations in the Commonwealth as well as legislation that would require the collection and reporting of data on community associations by county government. For more information on the issues currently pending before the legislative action committee, visit the legislative page of our website.

The cost of lobbying and government relations is significant, and we rely on members to help fund the LAC.  The LAC is hosting two Silent Auctions  - one during the Poconos Holiday Party & Awards on December 4th and a second auction during the chapter's Annual Meeting & Holiday Party on December 12. Donations such as a gift card to a restaurant, tickets to a sporting or cultural event, gift baskets,  house and home products, electronics, and professional services are wonderful items to be auctioned off during our holiday parties.  Please consider the important work of the PA LAC…… and click here for information on how to donate an item for the auction.
