Letter from the CATT Board President

Dear Members,

CATT has already been busy this year advocating for its members and searching for ways to make your membership more valuable.  I hope you’ve been thinking about how your CATT membership can work for you and your business. There are a number of ways for you to be heard and to have an impact on the state of the building industry in Lake Tahoe and Truckee.  For now, I’d like to focus on the advocacy that CATT offers to its members in order to maintain a positive business environment for building professionals. If you’re having an issue with a building department, public utility district or the like, please reach out to CATT so that we are aware of the issue. Once you’ve done this, you might think about joining the Local Government Affairs committee to help see your issue through its resolution.  If you don’t think you have enough time to join the committee, you can sit in on some of their meetings and/or be present at a meeting of the jurisdiction with which you’re having issues.  It benefits all of us to have more CATT members in the room when the powers-that-be are making decisions.  Our Government Affairs Committee members work really hard to uphold their mission statement which is, “To participate in the oversight of all regional governmental and quasi-governmental agencies, to make sure all fees and legislation are handed out fairly and adequately for the good of the public and contractor alike.”  Please, don’t underestimate the impact you and CATT can have when we show up to be heard.  We’ve been able to influence various local jurisdictions with regards to the Truckee General Plan and the fire hydrant issue in North Lake Tahoe to name a few.  I was delighted to be present at a summit of CATT and the Town of Truckee last month that was well attended and mutually beneficial.  We are stronger together and we can help ensure that Lake Tahoe and Truckee continue to be places where our businesses thrive. 


Warm regards,

Meghan Behm, Sierra Crest Cabinets

CATT Board President
