The Community Association Institute of New Jersey’s Legislative Action Committee has received the Legislative Action Committee of the Year award. The award recognizes “a state legislative action committee for demonstrated organizational excellence, strong member support, and successfully raising the visibility and effectiveness of CAI.”
Becker Shareholder David Ramsey, who also received the CAI’s “Excellence in Government and Public Affairs” award, served on the Legislative Action Committee and was heavily involved in its legislative efforts. Last year, the CAI New Jersey Legislative Action Committee tracked and advocated on several major bills, including the uniform common interest ownership act, elective vehicle charging stations, authority to collect assessments, and priority lien. Additionally, the committee passed monumental legislation expanding the number of months of assessments a community association could recover through priority lien foreclosure from six to 12 months.
In 2019, David and Ronald Perl of Hill Wallack LLP, both members of the CAI New Jersey Chapter, spent countless hours drafting CAI’s public policies on the Government and Public Affairs Committee. They continually support CAI’s Advocacy Summit, and both are members of CAI’s Federal Legislative Action Committee.
