The Spring Into Action Conference is the state's annual legislative issues conference and takes place in Baton Rouge, LA.

This meeting has a primary focus on advocacy and delivering attendees valuable information on the key issues happening in the real estate industry. REALTOR® Day is a chance for members to rally together as an industry at the State Capitol and discuss issues and concerns that affect Louisiana's homeowners while elected officials are in a legislative session. This year we will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act and recognize the important role that has played in homeownership. 

This conference provides unique sessions and ample networking opportunities with REALTORS® from all over Louisiana. As an industry we need to take an active role in the policies that impact our business by making a visible impact and having our voices heard. See the video below for what last year's attendees had to say!


Thank you to our conference sponsor!
