Defending the right to own property.

At the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings, thousands of members assemble in Washington, D.C., to conduct the business of NAR—advocacy work that makes us the most respected voice in real estate, protecting property ownership and advancing commercial and residential markets through a series of forums, educational sessions and meetings with Capitol Hill representatives.

This year’s Legislative Meetings take place May 4-9, 2024; the REALTORS® Trade Expo takes place May 6-7, 2024. The event is held annually in Washington, D.C. each May.
