Who Is a Featured Attendee?
A Featured Attendee is an active NAR member or real estate industry expert who will provide their unique viewpoint on the 2018 REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo, 14-19, in Washington, DC. Featured Attendees will share their event experience and give you an inside perspective on this critical NAR event and learn about public policy issues that matter to REALTORS®, their clients, and their businesses.

Look for Featured Attendees to contribute content such as photos, video footage, blog submissions – whatever format they are most comfortable using. They may report in from a committee meeting, provide a recap from a Capitol Hill visit, or document social events.

Our goal each year is to have a diverse group of Featured Attendees with a focus on different topics such as technology, legislative and policy changes, commercial aspects, etc. If you are interested in being a future Featured Attendee, please e-mail
