The 2014 REALTOR® Party Convention & Trade Expo represents an important opportunity for REALTORS® to meet with their U.S. Senators and house staff and communicate the issues critical to their businesses, communities and the consumers they represent.
To help prepare members for their upcoming meetings in May, NAR has prepared talking points that will walk REALTORS® through the messages that NAR would like presented to their Members of Congress. Additionally, NAR will hold a virtual town hall on May 8 at 2 p.m. EST to address any questions REALTORS® may have about the talking points.
In 2014, in addition to your Capitol Hill visits with your Members of Congress during the REALTOR® Party Convention & Expo in May, you will also help NAR deliver a “one-two punch” to Congress by scheduling in-district meetings back home in June. NAR has prepared two sets of talking points: one for your hill visits in May, and the other one for your in-district meetings in June. Download both sets of talking points below.
