The number of critical issues facing real estate is increasing, and Louisiana REALTORS recognizes the need for vigilance and action at the state level. Next week’s REALTOR Action conference in Baton Rouge is designed for REALTORS to get informed and involved on legislation, regulations and issues that impact their business.
LR members are urged to attend the informative programs we have lined up on May 24 and 25. Attendees will hear from top officials on policies and developments impacting the industry, meet state lawmakers at the state capitol and talk issues, get updated on the mortgage lending markets, kick off our constitutional amendment campaign to prohibit future transfer taxes in Louisiana, and network with legislators and REALTOR peers from throughout the state.
Speakers will include Louisiana Commissioner of Administration Paul Rainwater, former Secretary of Economic Development and Louisiana Committee of 100 CEO Michael Olivier, Citizens Bank & Trust Chief Lending Officer Jim Purgerson, Andrews Commercial Mortgage President Brian Andrews, National Association of REALTORS Vice Presidents Elizabeth Mendenhall and Joe Ventrone, top Washington RESPA attorney Phil Schulman and more.
It is a critical time for your engagement and involvement. For complete details on the REALTOR Action conference and to register online, visit LAREALTORS.org.
