Questions about the 2024 REALTORS® Legislative Meetings

When and where are the 2024 REALTORS® Legislative Meetings?

The 2024 REALTORS® Legislative Meetings are scheduled for May 6-11 and the Expo will be May 6-7. The Expo will take place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, 801 Allen Y. Lew Place NW, Washington, DC 20001. Governance meetings will be at the convention center or the Marriott Marquis Hotel, 901 Massachusetts Ave NW.

How much does it cost to register?

Registration is FREE for NAR members | $125 for non-members. Note: Ticketed events may require an additional fee.

Why register in advance?

Register in advance to ensure you receive all event communications, committee or business meeting information, and to choose your hotel accommodations from NAR-contracted hotels.

I have registered, but have not yet received my confirmation email, what should I do?

Please contact our registration and housing provider, Maritz Global Events,, to have it re-sent.

Why should I reserve my hotel room when I register for the event through NAR?

There is limited hotel space in the area so you will want to book your room promptly. NAR negotiates the lowest possible rates at area hotels. Additionally, staying in an NAR-booked hotel allows you to take advantage of networking opportunities, as attendees will make up the majority of the guests at official hotels.

Hotel reservations are made through the online registration process and are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis and subject to availability. Some hotels will sell out in the first 24 hours of registration opening.

Do I need to register for each governance meeting in advance?

No, but we strongly recommend arriving to each meeting early for the best seating. The venue reserves the right to close rooms if they become too crowded. All meetings are open to NAR members with the exception of meetings marked as “Closed” or “By Invitation Only” on the meetings schedule.

Will there be any remote options?

Members that serve on a committee (including the board of directors) can participate in their committee meeting virtually if unable to attend in person. Your staff executive will send you a Zoom link shortly before the meeting.

Any member can view a livestream of the board of directors at

Some mainstage sessions may also be available for viewing via livestream at Details including specific sessions will be posted closer to the event.

How should I plan my schedule?

Review the schedule of meetings. In April, download the event app to your mobile device and save your meetings and events to your personalized schedule. Printed programs will not be available on-site. The mobile app will be the source for all event information while on-site: schedules, speaker and attendee lists, and exhibitor details.

What should I bring to the meeting?

Lots of business cards for networking (make sure they have a surface that is easy to write on); at least two pairs of comfortable shoes; a sweater or light jacket for air-conditioned meeting rooms.

View on-site resources for more helpful information.

I am new to networking. Any suggestions?

Learn two to three interesting facts about your community that will make you more memorable to those you meet. Contact colleagues who are also attending the event to set up face-to-face meetings.
