Attend Crucial Legislative Conference on March 24
Builders looking to send a message to Congress that housing deserves 100% of their ongoing attention to lead the nation’s troubled economy back to higher ground should mark their calendar now for the most important grassroots event of the year — the 2009 NAHB Legislative Conference — which will take place on Tuesday, March 24 in Washington, D.C.
The timing of this year’s Legislative Conference — which, for the first time will take place independently from the NAHB spring board meeting — is particularly significant considering the growing downward momentum in housing and the nation’s job market.
With policymakers in Washington confronting the most difficult financial crisis since the 1930s, attending this year’s conference could be one of the most important decisions that builders make this year.
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 March 24 will send a powerful message to members of Congress that housing must remain a top national priority.
