Chair:  Charles H. Bell, Jr.

Legislative Committee

The Legislative Committee is responsible for monitoring legislation involving elections, campaigns, and conflicts of interest. The Committee analyzes relevant legislation and makes recommendations to CPAA regarding whether or not the organization should support, oppose, or remain neutral.

Regulatory Committee

The Regulatory Committee monitors existing and proposed FPPC regulations to identify areas of concern to its members and their clients. When appropriate, the Committee provides feedback and input to the FPPC on behalf of the regulated community in connection with the adoption of new or amended regulations. In recent years, the Committee has worked closely with the FPPC on its gift/travel disclosure and conflict of interest regulatory projects.  On occasion, the Regulatory Committee has also taken the lead in representing the interests of the regulated community before local ethics agencies.

Chair:  Stephen J. Kaufman
