Homeowners, professionals and others interested in the impact of Texas legislation on community associations and their residents have an opportunity to learn more about pressing issues, as well as educate lawmakers about the issues at hand. The Community Associations Institute (CAI) Texas Legislative Action Committee (TLAC) is holding its Rally Day at the Capitol in Austin on Wednesday, March 1, 2023.

TLAC’S Rally Day will give attendees direct access to leading policymakers through Capitol meetings and hear from Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar — Texas’ chief financial officer. Prior to visiting the Capitol, a workshop on communicating effectively with government officials will take place, as well as a presentation on legislative issues, advocacy strategy and TLAC operations.

As comptroller, Glenn is chief finance officer for the world’s ninth-largest economy. He has emerged as a passionate advocate for conservative financial management and government transparency who has focused on creating a more efficient and customer-oriented agency. He founded the state’s Transparency Stars program, pushed for smarter ways of investing our Rainy Day fund to protect it for future generations, and guided the formation of the nation’s first ever state-administered precious metals depository.
