On June 5, the Federation will be on Capitol Hill.
NAHB members will meet with their congressional delegations on Capitol Hill to discuss issues of vital interest to the home building industry.
The day begins with a morning briefing on key issues and a guest speaker at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill. Bus transportation will be provided from the Marriott Wardman Park, headquarters for the 2019 Spring Leadership Meeting.
After a day of Capitol Hill office visits and meetings, the NAHB Legislative Conference concludes with an evening reception at the Wardman Park hotel.
