Our staff and Legislative Affairs Committee works closely with local, state, and national leaders to make sure new and existing laws and ordinances don’t adversely affect your business or private property rights.
Throughout the year, we host a series of legislative forums to keep our members informed on the important real estate trends and issues facing our industry on a local, state, and national level. Through our “Get Active” program, our members can communicate with their elected officials and stay abreast of issues.
Each year, AAAR donates time and financial support to help make a difference in our communities. Our members actively participate in volunteer programs and events throughout the year, and our PR Committee focuses its programs and events on benefitting local charities and performing community service.
