Three Connecticut Legislators Honored For Their Work On Behalf of Condo Associations

Three members of the Connecticut General Assembly are being honored for their advocacy of condo issues.

The Legislative Advocacy Committee (LAC) of the Connecticut Chapter of the Community Associations Institute (CAI-CT) selected  Representative Gerald M. Fox, III (D-Stamford), Representative James M. Albis (D-East Haven) and Representative Matthew N. Ritter (D-Hartford) for its Annual Legislator of the Year Award.

“The Legislative Advocacy Committee (LAC) of the Community Associations Institute (CAI) – Connecticut Chapter recognizes these leaders for their advocacy in legislative and regulatory matters impacting community associations and CAI members throughout Connecticut,” said a release from the CAI.

Representative Fox serves as Co-Chair of the General Assembly’s Judiciary Committee.  Over the years, this committee has been charged with handling most of the key legislative issues regarding common interest communities.

“Thanks to Representative Fox’s leadership, the CAI-CT LAC has been able to work with the Judiciary Committee to accomplish important changes to the Common Interest Ownership Act (CIOA).  His strong knowledge about the operations of common interest communities helps to inform the process when condo/HOA bills appear before his committee.”

Representative James Albis is a member of the Judiciary Committee.

“Representative Albis has a keen interest in understanding the many dynamics of community association living.  He has been instrumental in creating a positive working relationship between CAI-CT and the Connecticut Condo Owners Coalition.”

Representative Matt Ritter also serves on the Judiciary Committee.

“Representative Ritter took on the challenge of working with members of the banking industry and representatives from CAI-CT to create a bill to ensure associations can recover common fees during a bank foreclosure process.  This new law (Public Act 13-156) helps condo owners and condo associations by providing greater protections to unit owners’ associations seeking reimbursement for unpaid charges that are incurred during a pending foreclosure action.”

    I was wondering if anyone knew of a time frame required for minutes to be completed following a board, or unit owners meeting. I have experienced problems with minutes not being available for months following a meeting which makes it difficult to confirm their accuracy.
    Any input would be appreciated.
