2011 Legislative Conference Recap
REALTORS® Build Relationships at the Statehouse
While Mother Nature was showing her force with ice and sleet, nearly 300 Indiana REALTORS® tried to match it, taking their market numbers and inified voice to the Statehouse as part of the 2011 IAR Legislative Conference & Expo.

The Conference theme was Rock'n a New Year - Rally, Relationships & Results; and a Rally not to be reckoned with.  Relationships were developed with members of the General Assembly to ensure Results in favor of the REALTOR® Party.

IAR thanks those who made the trip to build Relationships at the Statehouse.  Staff has heard your visits were well-received.  But, we urge you to consider legislative advocacy a never-ending Relationship to build and produce Results.

>> Check out the Legislative Agenda folder passed out to Legislators and attending REALTORS®.
