During the general session of the CAI National Conference in San Diego on April 19, the CAI-Greater Inland Empire (CAI-GRIE) legislative support committee (LSC) was honored with a chapter excellence award in the Chapter Management & Development category. Accepting the award on behalf of CAI-GRIE were LSC chairperson and CLAC delegate, Nancy I. Sidoruk, Esq., CAI-GRIE past-president Robert Riddick, and CAI-GRIE executive director DJ Conlon.
The broad goals and objectives of the CAI-GRIE LSC are to support the efforts and strengthen awareness of CLAC. The LSC strives to provide CLAC with high-quality consistent, coordinated support at the chapter level, including fundraising, education/information sharing, and grassroots
efforts. Success in reaching, or even exceeding, CLAC fundraising goals is an extremely visible annual financial initiative for CAI-GRIE.
With respect to this initiative, the CAI-GRIE LSC seeks to meet or exceed CLAC expectations and establish a multi-year history of profitability, while at the same time establish a foundation of excellence in legislative-related activities and programming that makes volunteer, grassroots and financial support of CLAC an easy decision to make.
“I’m absolutely thrilled. This award means a lot – to me, our entire committee, and the GRIE chapter,” says Sidoruk, who has chaired the LSC since 2009. “A lot goes into putting on our premier fundraising event, the Evening at the Winery, which is now in its fourth year. And we’ve been working hard to ensure that CAI-GRIE members are informed about legislation that impacts community associations – through regular legislative updates and special programming, and encouraging interest and involvement in the legislative process.”
