Excitement is in the air! The annual Tallahassee trip for Great American REALTOR® Days (GARD) is right around the corner.
Each year, REALTORS® from across the state get the opportunity to meet with State legislators one-on-one and talk about pending real estate legislation.This event brings Key Contacts and Florida REALTORS® together and affords the opportunity to discuss current issues affecting real estate professionals as well as private property rights. The primary goal of our annual visit to the State’s Capitol is to maximize opportunities for key issues to be communicated.
GARD takes place during the Florida legislative session and demonstrates to state lawmakers the power behind the REALTOR® brand. This is a great chance for you to network with REALTORS® from across the state, meet your Florida REALTORS® Public Policy team and most importantly, talk with your local legislators face-to-face about what’s most important to you as a homeowner and a real-estate professional.
You don’t want to miss this all-important event at the Capitol. Again, this year, a bus has been chartered to depart from GTR on March 18 and return on March 20. Your cost to attend will be the $50 registration fee plus the cost of the hotel room, space permitting.
This three-day trip is packed full of networking opportunities as well as some time to enjoy Tallahassee. On the first night, the Florida REALTORS® Office of Public Policy will host an open house reception.
All GARD attendees are welcome — just be sure to indicate your attendance when you register. On the second night, after a day of working hard at the Capitol, REALTORS® from across Florida will take over Adams Street in downtown Tallahassee for the annual block party. Your registration name badge is your pass for admission and two drink tickets are provided.
Remember, if real estate is your profession, make politics your business! Seating for the charter bus is limited, please contact Brenda Rabbitt at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
