The Midyear Legislative Meetings, part of the 2012 Midyear Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo, represent an important opportunity for REALTORS® to meet with their U.S. Senators and Representatives and communicate the issues critical to their businesses, communities and the consumers they represent.
To help prepare members for their upcoming meetings during the Midyear Meetings, NAR has prepared talking points and videos by its state legislative representatives that walk REALTORS® through the messages that NAR would like presented to their Members of Congress. Additionally, NAR will hold virtual town halls to address any questions REALTORS® may have about the talking points or videos.
The REALTORS® Land Institute LANDU Education Week will take place June 18-22 in Chicago, Ill. Participants can earn credits towards the Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) designation.
NAR President Moe Veissi invites one of NAR's most respected leaders and statesmen, 2001 NAR President Richard Mendenhall, to share an inspiring and entertaining story of how General Schwarzkopf realized the no. 1 role of leadership: raise the bar. The story punctuates the reason for the REALTOR® rally in May to make sure housing is protected for generations to come.
In the March 5 edition of "Mondays with Moe," 2012 NAR President Moe Veissi announces that the website for the Rally to Protect the American Dream is now live. He encourages every member to go the site now to register, as well as every association to go to the site to request a bus to help bring members to the Rally.
In the February 21st edition of the President's Podcast, 2012 NAR President Moe Veissi discusses two important issues facing REALTORS®. First, he corrects misinformation that members may have heard about a 3.8 percent tax in the new health care law, and reiterates that it is not a transfer tax. Second, he provides an important update on the rally that REALTORS® are holding to protect the American Dream of Home Ownership on May 17th, 2012 in Washington, DC. He encourages everyone to attend to ensure that REALTORS®' voices will be heard.
