THA Member Code of Ethics
As members of the Tennessee Housing Association, we subscribe to the principles set forth in the THA Code of Ethics, and pledge to comply with the specific standards of conduct established by the Code:
Below are snapshots of some of the more important successes in THA’s legislative initiatives, over the years. This work is performed on behalf of our members, and many never realize the amount of time, expended on these efforts. At a membership rate of $200 annually, I am sure you will find the value well worth the small investment!
Each year several thousand bills are submitted from the General Assembly. Some initiatives are submitted by THA, some directly from legislators, some from the Governor’s office (called administrative bills), and others are submitted from third parties. It would not be possible for a single small business, to take on the time needed to review all of the proposed legislation. That's why you support your trade association! We do the work for you, to ensure you can just run your business!
As THA is a multi-disciplined Association, each legislative session is monitored closely, to ensure predatory legislation is not passed. This requires hours of reading, fact-finding, and continuous review of bill amendments, until the General Assembly (session) closes. Typically, the THA Staff, Legislative Committee, lobbying firm, and attorney assumes the lead role in review and monitoring. In some instances, it is necessary to send bill reviews to leaders in the industry, from a specific discipline, to gain feedback on the possible implications if a bill should pass.
Annually, we encourage our members to support Tennessee's legislative efforts, by contributing to the Political Action Committee (PAC) campaign. Review the PAC webpage, for more information!
