Each year, the CMHDA Governing Board – acting on preliminary recommendations from the CMHDA Legislative Committee – identifies major public policy issues that the Association should be focusing on, and develops a platform that will guide the association's advocacy efforts in the coming year. The following links will provide you with information about CMHDA's legislative and public policy priorities.
