Behind the Scenes in Today's Political Environment

May 14, 2019

REALTORS® Legislative Meetings and Trade Expo

It’s the informal kick-off for state and local association leadership attending the annual REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo in Washington, D.C., today. The Federal Legislative & Political Forum was an exciting and informative way to start. The Honorable Terry McAuliffe and Haley Barbour shared their insights on politics as it relates to the real estate industry.  The discussion was about how important local focus is and what it truly means. One of the most interesting takeaways I learned was that 92 million registered voters did not vote in the last big election. We have much work to do to encourage everyone to exercise their right and need to vote.
