The legislative mission of the Chicagoland Apartment Association is to protect members’ bottom line by advocating on their behalf at the local, state and federal level. Our strong, united voice is heard in the halls of government, saving members quantifiable dollars on issues related to property taxes and fees, zoning and building codes, the Residential Landlord and Tenant Ordinance, licensing, environmental issues, and so much more.
CAA’s Legislative Committee meets regularly to review legislative and regulatory initiatives and recommends public policy positions to the Board of Directors. Our message is communicated effectively to policy-makers via direct and grass-roots lobbying campaigns, and to the general public via public affairs and social media platforms. Those efforts are complemented by the CAA Political Action Committee (CAAPAC), which helps elect candidates to state and local office who support issues important to apartment owners and managers.
