Mark Your Calendar for the 2010 NAHB Legislative Conference
Builders looking to send a message to Congress that it needs to take action to jump start housing and the economy should mark their calendar now for the most important grassroots event of the year — the 2010 NAHB Legislative Conference — which will take place on Wednesday, April 21 in Washington, D.C. leading into the association’s spring board meeting.
The timing of this year’s legislative conference is particularly significant considering the precarious condition of the housing sector and overall economy. The home building industry still faces major challenges as the housing market begins to regain its footing. Specifically, these involve housing finance and appraisal issues that threaten to harm small businesses, slow home sales and hamper a housing recovery.
Builders are encouraged to travel to the nation’s capital and to urge their representatives and senators to support policies that will stabilize home values, mitigate foreclosures, bolster consumer confidence and get the economy moving forward.
The annual NAHB conference provides an ideal opportunity for association members to share their concerns on housing-related issues with lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
Especially in these challenging times, participation by NAHB members can make a huge difference as various interest groups compete to push their agendas in Washington.
A strong builder turnout on April 21 will send a powerful message to members of Congress that housing must remain a top national priority.
