In 1984, the California Legislative Action Committee was formed. CLAC is a volunteer committee of CAI consisting of homeowners and professionals serving HOA’s. It is the largest advocacy organization in America dedicated to monitoring legislation, educating elected state lawmakers and protecting the interests of those living in community associations in California. In the past, CLAC has been instrumental in working with the State legislators in the formulation of bills and enactment of laws relating to community associations.

CLAC’s Mission:

To safeguard and improve the community association lifestyle and their property values by advocating a reasonable balance between state statutory requirements and the ability and authority of individual homeowners to govern themselves through their community associations.

How Does CLAC Accomplish its Goals?

  • Reviews and takes positions on all legislative bills affecting homeowners associations
  • Hosts a “Legislative Day at the Capitol” event each year to educate legislators and members
  • Employs a veteran lobbyist, Skip Daum, to testify at hearings and lobby (educate) the legislators in Sacramento
  • Alerts HOA’s and their managers about important legislation
  • Makes visits to legislators in their districts to continue the education begun in Sacramento
  • Organizes “grass-roots” efforts to communicate en masse with legislators over topics that are particularly important to community associations
  • Acts as a resource for legislators when considering legislation having to do with community associations.

The National CAI website also extensively discusses national legislative issues relevant to homeowner associations.

Stay up to date on what is going on at the Capitol by reading the ‘CLAC Corner’ from CAI-CLAC’s Lobbyist, Skip Daum or visit CAI-CLAC’s website.
