ACBR members took part in the Georgia Association of REALTORS® 2019 "Days at the Dome." ACBR joined REALTORS® from across the State of Georgia for two days of learning more about the legislative process, visiting with legislators to discuss issues that have an impact on the real estate industry and networking with over 700 REALTORS® from all over Georgia.
In addition to programs sponsored by GAR, ACBR members were excited to have Georgia House Speaker Pro-Tem Jan Jones visit and discuss the State's most pressing issues this session as well as her legislative priorities. Also stopping in to meet with our members was Sen. Kay Kirkpatrick, Sen. Sally Harrell and Rep. Derrick Jackson. Rep. Park Cannon invited members to join in a State hearing on short term rentals in February.
A few members also visited Atlanta City Hall to learn how the City government connects with State government. We were hosted by At-Large City Councilman Matt Westmoreland. He reviewed how the governments work together, initiatives the City has for the year and provided a tour of City Hall. City Council President Felecia Moore, Councilwoman Natalyn Archibong and Councilwoman Andrea Boone each took time to visit with our members.
