“Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you.” – Pericles
PMAR’s Realtor® Advocacy Department works to keep you involved in the regional issues that impact your business most. Whether it’s Sign Codes, Regional Growth & Transportation, Energy Scores, Relocation Ordinance, or Local Elections, we’re here keeping the conversations lively and relevant. Are you looking for ways to grow your understanding of the town where you live and work? Come join the conversation and meet fellow Realtors® who share your passion for information and networking.
PMAR’s Realtor® Advocacy Policies are implemented as a proactive means to promote homeownership, the protection of private property rights, and the Realtor® right to conduct business.
The objective of the policies is to increase Realtor® presence within governmental entities and with the public, and to influence change where appropriate.
PMAR members meet regularly to ensure the governmental actions of the Association meet the needs and concerns of the Realtor® member. All members are invited to attend the meetings of the Realtor® Advocacy Committee.
PMAR’s Realtor® Advocacy Policies specifically encourage recruitment of PMAR members to join and monitor local, city, county and regional bodies, including Metro. Realtor® involvement is equally as important (not to be confused with “greater than”) as making a fair share investment in the Realtor® Political Action Committee. Below are links to websites that contain additional information on areas in which your services may be of interest and importance to all Realtors® and their clients.
There is a difference between being “political” and being informed and engaged. How can you be an informed and engaged Realtor®?
