In-District Meetings Set for April 30 – May 5, 2018
NAHB’s Bringing Housing Home™ is an opportunity for members to conduct in-district meetings with their U.S. representatives and senators. These meetings, especially important during each election year, are key to strengthening relationships with lawmakers and to keep housing issues as a priority in Congress.
HBA executive officers are encouraged to begin planning meetings with their representatives now. NAHB will provide meeting materials and talking points, as well as staff experts to help facilitate meetings
For more information, contact Karl Eckhart or Michael Bezruki at 202-266-8542.

Legislative Priorities Brochure
Access the NAHB 2018 Legislative Priorities brochure to learn about the key issues to discuss at your meetings. You can print copies and bring them to your meetings.

Preparing for your Meeting
To begin preparing, review NAHB’s Lobbying Tips and watch our Quick Tips video.
NAHB can provide talking points before your scheduled meetings. You can download this brochure that provides background on the Federation’s positions and can be a “leave-behind” after your visit.
Follow up with NAHB Government Affairs
Let your NAHB Government Affairs contact person know once you have your meetings scheduled. You can also request a member of NAHB’s Government Affairs team to attend your meeting. Please contact Michael Bezruki with any questions.
