CAA’s Legislative Conference draws 400+ participants, helps secure success
At its Legislative Conference, the California Apartment Association spent Wednesday morning providing a crash course on the most significant legislation facing the rental housing industry in 2019.
By the afternoon, more than 400 rental housing professionals, thoroughly prepped by CAA’s public affairs team, were ready for their walk to the Capitol, where they went from office to office, advocating for their industry in one of the busiest years in recent memory for landlord-tenant legislation.
The program started at 10 a.m. in a sprawling ballroom in the downtown Sacramento Sheraton Grand. Over the next two hours, CAA’s government affairs leaders combined speeches, videos and question-and-answer sessions to shed light on the growing tenants’ rights movement, review positive and negative legislation 2019, and anticipate the likelihood of another statewide rent control initiative in 2020.
