IAR has members who serve as liaisons with congressional representatives, and this special group of people gathered for a kickoff Tuesday, May 13, 2014 in Washington, D.C.
The meeting covered a variety of issues of interest to REALTOR® members, including urging passage of the Marketplace Fairness Act and the extension of the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act.
Housing Policy Advisor Sharon Gorrell and Dan Blair, a lobbyist for the National Association of REALTORS®, answered questions and provided the overview to a packed room.
On Wednesday and Thursday, IAR members will be meeting with congressional representatives to talk about housing policy. Wednesday morning kicks off with an invitation-only breakfast with U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin.
