REALTORS® Spend Busy Week Visiting Congress; Also, NAR Board of Directors OK's Dues and Ethics Enforcement Changes

The protection of net neutrality and the renewal and reform of the National Flood Insurance Program were among several issues REALTORS® broached with members of Congress last week at the Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo in Washington, D.C. Also, the NAR Board of Directors approved an annual $30 dues increase, postponed a separate decision on an escalating dues hike and gave local associations the right to publicize the names and photos of repeat Code of Ethics violators.

Read our positions on issues discussed during Capitol Hill visits. Find out more about NAR Board of Directors decisions. See the photo gallery from all these activities and blog posts below:
