At the July 14 meeting, the grassroot campaign created to educate policy leaders and oppose the City of Austin’s notice of proposed eviction requirement will be outlined, and the committee’s organization process discussed.

The Advocacy Committee typically meets the first Tuesday each montrh begining at 9am, but the dates and times are occasionally modified to avoid meeting the day after a hioliday or for other reasons.

The committee monitors all branches of government in the 11 county AAA service area to identify issues and policy actions that impact the rental housing community. As the focal point for deliberations on AAA's public policy agenda, the committee discusses trending local issues and policies that affect rental housing providers and industry and proposes actions and official industry positions on important topics.

Federal and state issues and topics are also monitored and discussed. The Advocacy Committee also ensures AAA viewpoints are represented to the State and National Legislative Committees via AAA-appointed members to those bodies as well as appearing before them to communicate directly. In addition, within the Advocacy Committee is the Apartment PAC (Political Action Committee) subcommittee.
