With the housing industry and economy facing unprecedented challenges because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Legislative Conference takes on added importance as it moves from in-person meetings to a special three-day virtual event running from June 22-24.
The power of the home-building industry lies with its grassroots advocacy efforts. Participating virtually in this year’s Legislative Conference will give more NAHB members the unparalleled opportunity to:
- Lobby members of Congress to protect their business and industry;
- Establish constructive working relationships; and
- Ensure that NAHB’s issues and matters pertaining to your state and local community are heard by Washington policymakers.
These meetings, typically held on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., are a critical part of the Federation’s advocacy efforts to keep housing issues a priority with federal lawmakers.
Your participation can make a huge difference. Now, more than ever, it is critical for lawmakers to understand the industry’s key issues as housing is poised to play a critical role in the nation’s economic recovery.
Preparing for the Virtual Legislative Conference
