This week NAR will conduct a Town Hall Meeting with REALTORS® from across the country to discuss the results of our annual public policy survey. At the meeting, we will rank the legislative and regulatory policy issues that affect our members and industry.
The survey asked members their opinion of various public policy issues. The over 30 issues included: Mortgage Interest Deduction, Capital Gains Exclusion on Principal Residence, Short Sales, Home Valuation Code of Conduct, Small Business Health Coverage, Commercial Real Estate Lending, Available and Affordable Property Insurance, and Conforming and FHA Loan Limits.
This week the survey results will be posted on Realtor.org/GovernmentAffairs. As soon as our 2010 Public Policy Agenda is finalized, we’ll also post it on the Government Affairs page.
Town Hall meetings like these represent the best of what NAR stands for. We exist for one reason: To make our members more successful. With that being said, the motor of NAR’s public policy agenda is YOU — our members.
What do you believe are the most important policy issues that the National Association of REALTORS® needs to focus on in 2010? Form your own Town Hall below and get the conversation going!
And stay tuned to the President’s Report this week for more news on the Town Hall and other NAR issues. – Vince Malta, 2010 NAR Vice President and Liaison to Government Affairs
