WHAT THE CAA DOES
The CAA works daily with Congress and the Administration to enhance the understanding of the United States government in matters relating to Croatians.

The CAA is also an information resource for virtually all those involved in policymaking. CAA provides vital, timely information that results in positive, meaningful action.

HOW THE CAA WORKS
Through teamwork.  We have experienced professionals who have worked on Capitol Hill and in the White House. These individuals work with specific members of the House and Senate on an ongoing basis, and build close, personal relationships.

The CAA has developed chapters around the country to serve as informational centers and as local action committees to facilitate communications with their governmental representatives.

WHAT THE CAA DOES OUTSIDE WASHINGTON, DC
The CAA's grassroots organization is a critical element in its effectiveness. The regional chapters are extremely important in complementing the CAA's activities in Washington.

Key contacts are an essential part of the CAA's political network. These men and women, in all 50 states and most of the 435 congressional districts are people with strong personal relationships with their senators or congressmen. They can gain quick access and have the opportunity to provide rapid input from the grassroots to reinforce the work of CAA's Washington staff.

TOGETHER, WE CAN SHAPE THE FUTURE
With your help, the CAA can continue to:

  • Encourage Congress and the Administration to support the democratic developments in Croatia.
  • Educate the American public on the need to support the democratic development in Croatia.
  • Promote the political involvement of the entire Croatian American community.
  • Provide journalists, columnists and commentators with factual, timely information regarding Croatian American issues.

JOIN THE CAA
Join today and help shape our future.
