Greetings from Michigan Realtors®! View the top 5 news and resources for the month of May.
1. Realtor® Advocacy Month | Week 3: INVEST
Last week, Realtors® from across the state and nation headed to Washington D.C. to meet with their Congressional Representatives and Senators on issues affecting the real estate industry. The Realtors® Legislative Meetings and Trade Expo provided an excellent opportunity for members to engage with their elected officials, connect with other Realtors® from across the country, and learn exciting information about the housing and commercial markets both nationally and abroad.
In addition, awards were presented to both local and state associations who excelled in their RPAC investments last year. The Michigan Realtors®, the West Michigan Lakeshore Association of Realtors®, and the Jackson Area Association of Realtors® were all presented with RPAC Performance Achievement Awards! These awards highlighted RPAC member investment efforts, along with the hard work of many dedicated Realtor® members who invest their time and energy on relaying the importance of RPAC to their colleagues! Congratulations!
Michigan Realtors® had a strong presence at the national level during the RPAC awards and hill visits. As Realtor® Advocacy Month comes to an end, we encourage you to get involved and make your investment online today.
