Community Involvement – Guest speakers to include local community leaders with REALTOR® ties
As real estate professionals, our efforts fostering home ownership and property rights extends broadly to building better communities and regions. This session will focus on the benefits and role of community volunteerism and civic participation that may not be directly REALTOR® related. For example, serving your community as a planning or parks commissioner, serving on a non-profit board of directors, or volunteering with non-profit groups such as Feeding America or Habitat for Humanity.

Government Affairs & Public Policy – Guest speakers to include local elected leaders
As a heavily regulated industry, the role for REALTOR® government affairs and public policy advocacy has never been more in demand. This session will focus on the various tools and resources available to REALTOR® associations and the need for supporting “REALTOR® Party” initiatives and candidates.
