What are Legislative Outreach events?
Louisiana REALTORS® schedules a series of Legislative Outreach events prior to the start of the year’s legislative session.
The 2019 Legislative Regular Session begins at Noon on Monday, April 8, 2019. The purpose of these outreach events is to convene and connect Louisiana’s legislators with REALTORS® in their areas and away from the hustle and bustle of the State Capital. Each event is an opportunity to get together and discuss issues that impact real estate and our communities and get an overview of what to expect in the upcoming legislative session.
Wh0 attends these events?
LR invites every state legislator and their guests to the events that are hosted for their area. REALTOR® members, local association leadership, along with affiliates that work closely with the real estate industry are encouraged to attend and participate.
What is the time commitment?
Below is the 2019 Legislative Outreach schedule. Each event begins at 10:00 am with an informative class,
“Survival in the Real Estate World.” This 2 CE credit hour class is taught by Louisiana REALTORS®’ Norman Morris, CEO and
Kim Callaway, Director of Legal & Governmental Affairs, and provides an overview of the law and any updates and changes with rules and regulations that govern the practice of real estate. The class will end at 12 Noon and roll into the legislative luncheon that will end by 2:00 pm. At the luncheon, legislators will be asked to answer a set of questions on subjects of affecting the real estate industry and general interest to all citizens in addition to answering any questions you may have.
What is the cost?
Registration is required in order to reserve a place and insure there is enough seating. The cost is $25 and includes the
