Wednesday, February 15 is REALTOR® Day on the Hill. You won't want to miss this important chance to talk directly with your legislators on issues that affect your business. Stick around for the Housing Policy Forum later in the afternoon, then make your way to the Jefferson for our can't-miss Legislative Reception.
On Wednesday, the annual Political Advocacy Luncheon with special guest speaker David Stevens, who is current CEO of the Mortgage Bankers Association and former Federal Housing Administration commissioner. Following lunch, nationally syndicated Washington Post real estate columnist Ken Harney will emcee a special housing policy forum for Virginia REALTORS.
