REALTORS® Land Institute leadership and members attended the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings and Trade Expo in Washington, DC, from May 13-18. Check out these key highlights from the event to see RLI’s presence and impact while at the event:
- The morning of Tuesday, May 14, RLI hosted its RLI Leadership and Member Meeting where Russell Riggs, RLI’s Legislative Liaison to the National Association of REALTORS®, gave an update on the latest legislative issues affecting the land industry and Aubrie gave an update about the RLI 2017-2020 Strategic Plan.
- RLI Leadership again attended the NAR Commercial Reception in the evening on Thursday, May 16 to make sure our organization’s presence was felt.
- While in town, RLI 2018-19 National President Jeramy Stephens, ALC, and RLI CEO Aubrie Kobernus visited the Capitol to thank Senator Cotton (R-AR) for sponsoring SR 115 which congratulates RLI on its 75th Anniversary this year!
- Finally, on Friday, May 17, RLI 2016 National President Bob Turner, ALC, was invited to the stage by US President Donald Trump to speak on Opportunity Zones. Turner is considered the REALTOR® expert on the topic. President Trump started off his speech discussing how his policies have helped strengthen private property rights in the land industry. He came back to discussing land-related issues various times throughout the speech to his audience of REALTORS®, referencing the positive impacts of his administration’s polices being implemented by the Environmental Protection Agency, the benefits landowners may see from the recent tariff policies, and more.
