Legislative Platform

Prior to the start of each General Assembly, CCAO members develop, through the committee and Board of Directors approval process, a legislative platform to guide the Association’s advocacy efforts for the next two years. Ultimately, the platform is voted on by the CCAO general membership at the annual winter conference in December.

CCAO is currently in the process of drafting its 135th General Assembly Legislative Platform. When it is finalized in December, it will be posted here.
