REALTOR and Government Day 2019

REALTOR® & Government Day

April 24, 2019 | Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor's Club


It's time to lobby! The WRA's annual lobbying event, REALTOR® & Government Day, is your chance to shape the laws that affect you and your real estate business in Wisconsin.

The event kicks off with an issue briefing where you'll learn about pending laws and how they impact real estate. Next, you'll move to the Capitol for lawmaker visits. You'll have the unique opportunity to meet in person with your state lawmakers to lobby for or against these laws.

This is your chance to advocate for issues that impact the real estate industry, homeownership and property rights in Wisconsin. Your voice will be heard, and a better Wisconsin real estate market will follow.
