Advocacy Materials for the 2018 REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo

The 2018 REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo represented 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 meetings in May, NAR prepared talking points and a series of four videos that walked REALTORS® through the messages that NAR would like presented to their Members of Congress.

Talking Points

NAR asked members to review and download the talking points prior to their arrival in DC, to help them deliver NAR's message to their Members of Congress during their Hill visits in May.

NAR Town Hall Webcast

On May 10, 2018, NAR conducted a Town Hall Meeting for REALTORS® who planned to attend the 2018 REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo. NAR's Senior Vice President Jerry Giovaniello, accompanied by NAR lobbyists, highlighted the issues REALTORS® were going to present during meetings in Capitol Hill offices. Jerry, and the lobbyists also answered many questions that were submitted by the attendees.

Federal Priorities Videos

In preparation for the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo held in May in Washington, D.C., NAR prepared a series of four videos providing an overview of the issues that REALTORS® would be discussing with their Members of Congress. In order to help them deliver NAR's message to their Members of Congress during their Hill visits in May, we asked REALTORS® to watch the federal priority videos prior to their arrival in DC.
