Issues Monitoring

One of the primary responsibilities of the NCRPA Public Affairs Department is the monitoring of emerging issues that affect the rental housing industry. Extensive issues files are maintained in order to track a number of topics throughout their development. Staff researches and analyzes legislation in order to determine the impacts on the industry, and makes recommendations to the Legislative Steering Committee, Executive Committee and the Board of Directors based on this research and the past position statements of the Association.

One of the Department's goals is to keep members informed of any decisions made at the local, state and national levels of government that affect the operation of their businesses as part of the rental housing industry. This is accomplished through the quarterly "Legislative News" published in Insight magazine, as well as periodic "Legislative Reports" that are faxed or e-mailed to members in order to bring attention to an urgent issue that needs immediate action. You can view the Association's most recent Legislative Reports by visiting the "Local Issues" page of this site or by clicking here.

Political Action Committee and Lobbying Efforts

The political arm of the Nor Cal Rental Property Association is its Political Action Committee (NCRPA-PAC). The NCRPA-PAC is a non-profit, non-partisan committee, the purpose of which is to support local ballot measures and candidates that have a positive impact on the rental housing industry. The NCRPA-PAC supports candidates for local office, California State Legislature, as well as ballot initiatives. The NCRPA Legal Fund may be used for anything from defending the industry against legal action to contesting legislation at the local, state and federal levels. Members may contribute to the PAC and Legal Fund by filling out the "Voluntary Contributions" portion of the annual Membership Application or by filling out the forms below.

In addition to utilizing PAC funds, NCRPA Public Affairs staff meets regularly with elected officials at the local, state and federal levels. Also, once a year NCRPA staff and members travel to Sacramento and Washington DC as part of the Association's Legislative Day events in order to advocate on behalf of rental property owners and managers.

Research

The Public Affairs Department publishes three surveys that are widely referenced and are central to understanding the current state of the rental housing industry.

Community Outreach and Coalition Building

In order to maintain awareness of the issues and concerns of our membership, NCRPA is actively involved with many community organizations. By serving on various committees and attending community events, it is our hope that we can not only maintain the Association's involvement in community concerns, but also increase awareness of NCRPA as a positive force in the rental housing industry.
