CLAC - Colorado Legislative Action Committee
The CAI Colorado Legislative Action Committee (CAI CLAC), a committee of CAI is the official voice with legislators and regulators in Colorado. CAI CLAC exists to speak with one voice on legislative and regulatory matters that affect community associations, community association managers and CAI business partners. CAI CLAC is made up of a balance of CAI members and appointees from the chapters within the state. CAI CLAC is a committee of CAI’s national office and is a partner with the CAI chapters within its state.
The individual volunteer members of the CAI CLAC work countless hours throughout the year to support the needs of community associations; however, new threats and opportunities are requiring our LAC to employ government affairs professionals in order to open the doors of decision makers and maintain a high-level of advocacy. Your contribution is critical in helping the CAI CLAC fulfill their advocacy mission, communicate with members and policy makers, raise their profile at state capitols, and retain the services of professionals who help CAI shape the debate concerning issues important to community associations and the professionals that serve them.

2017 CAM Sunset Review
The Colorado General Assembly sets specific dates that a particular agency, board, or function of government will terminate unless the legislature passes new legislation to continue. An analysis is performed to determine if the program is necessary and should be continued, modified, or cease operations. DORA reviewed the Community Association Manager Program for the 2018 legislative session.
On April 10, 2018 the Senate Finance Committee voted to postponed HB 1175 indefinitely which means the CAM program will sunset on June 30, 2019 unless a bill in the 2019 session revives the program. The Senate Finance vote was a partisan 3-2 vote with the Republican Senators talking about the need to lessen governmental regulation of private business as their reason for not supporting the continuation of the program.
CLAC will be gathering thoughts and input for new legislation in the 2019 legislative session over the rest of 2018.
The Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) operates an HOA Information office.
