NC REALTORS® Legislative Meetings are right around the corner.
2016 NC REALTORS® Legislative Meetings June 20-22, 2016
NC REALTORS® Legislative Meetings are right around the corner. This is your opportunity to meet face-to-face with elected officials in Raleigh and to show them the power of the REALTOR® voice.
This year’s event will take place June 20-22 in downtown Raleigh. Join us Monday and Tuesday for committee meetings and other events at the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel (421 S Salisbury St.), and Wednesday for Legislative Day at the NC General Assembly (16 W Jones Street).
Here are some highlights from this year’s agenda:
Don’t miss the Legislative Forum on Tuesday, June 21. This year, in partnership with NC REALTORS®’ charitable foundation, Homes4NC, and thanks to a Housing Opportunity grant from NAR, the forum will focus on legislative efforts to support housing affordability for all citizens. Members of the General Assembly will be on hand to discuss opportunities for REALTORS® to support this important issue and representatives from Homes4NC will present the work being done to support community housing projects throughout North Carolina. 12:30-1:30 p.m., Oak Forest A
That evening, join us for the Legislative Reception and interact with legislators and REALTORS® from across the state. New this year – the reception will be held at the North Carolina Museum of History. 6:00-7:30 p.m., NC Museum of History (Buses depart Sheraton at 5:45 p.m.; Buses depart Museum at 7:30 p.m.)
Then, get ready to rally for Legislative Day on Wednesday, June 22. NC REALTORS® lobbyists will start the morning with a briefing of talking points and things you’ll need to know before your meetings with legislators. You’ll also hear from legislative REALTOR® champions on the value of advocacy. 9-10:30 a.m., NC General Assembly Legislative Auditorium (Buses depart Sheraton at 8:30 a.m.)
