Join us in Washington!

This past year has been a roller coaster of activity on Capitol Hill and issues ranging from healthcare to taxes have been battlegrounds for both political parties.  With the midterm elections approaching in November, Republicans will be trying to secure legislative wins. 

With so much at stake and so many opportunities to advance our agendas, we invite you to join us for our annual Spring Meeting & Legislative Conference.  Congress and the Trump Administration are working to enact legislation on important public policy issues and this conference is your opportunity to hear from the lawmakers directly.  We will bring members of the United States Congress directly to the conference to speak to you, and members of both organizations will meet personally with lawmakers to make sure our collective legislative priorities and concerns are shared with leaders that are in a position to make a difference.  You are the best representative for your business and industry, and your personal stories make a persuasive and powerful case for policies that will make residential housing and the overall economy stronger.

In addition to advancing our common interests, this growing conference is an opportunity to join forces and make our voices heard. The meeting is an incredible way to educate yourself on a variety of legislative topics, network with industry colleagues, participate in the legislative process, and shape policy that can make for a better future.  For those of you attending for the very first time, we assure you that being part of the political process is an amazing experience and an invaluable use of your time. 

So come join us and meet with business colleagues, national leaders, and association leadership in Washington on March 19-21, 2018, at the Wink Washington, D.C. Hotel. Our staff will work with you to ensure you have all the resources needed to be knowledgeable on public policy topics. You will also hear directly from lawmakers at the Washington Briefing Breakfast. This process will ensure that veterans of ‘Hill Visits’ and those new to Washington will be prepared to interact with lawmakers during Capitol Hill visits and during the Legislative Reception on Capitol Hill.

Finally, the Joint Networking Reception on Capitol Hill will allow you to connect with fellow industry partners, build new relationships, and learn about what’s to come from veteran speakers and political players. Add your voice on issues affecting your business and be a part of the change you want to see in Washington, D.C.  Take the first step today and register now with your respective association.  Represent your industry and make a positive difference.
