Speak Up 2022

HOA Politics and Policy

Supporters of the CAI Texas Chapters and Texas Community Association Advocates (TCAA) are united by a common mission: to ensure that Texas community associations function properly for the benefit of all residents, that property values are protected, and that community associations are well governed and properly managed to serve homeowners across Texas. The TCAA believes in responsibility and working together with public officials on public policy and working to find common ground to benefit homeowners and protect the quality of life of Texas neighborhoods.

The team at Chaparral Community Management in Houston is proud to be a memberand working with the TCAA to help guide legislation that affects our communities in 2022.
The Texas 2022 legislative session is another big year with thousands of new bills presented. TCAA with the support of HOA companies like Chaparral will be monitoring these bills, communicating regularly with legislators, stakeholders, and the CAI Texas and TCAA community. The highest priority for TCAA in these efforts is to preserve the existing power of community associations to be largely self-regulated and self-governed, without undue government interference, so that they may continue to best serve homeowners in Texas. TCAA will also continue to monitor implementation of recently adopted regulatory changes, including numerous changes relating to notices, elections, meetings, and liens.

The bottom line is that CAI and TCAA is proud of the work being done by local community associations and professionals in Texas, and wants to empower you and your neighbors to continue that success.CAI and TCAA hope to hear from you about the issues of concern to you and your neighbors, and we also encourage you to share your support of community associations with your local legislators.
