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.
In early May, NAHB members held more than 150 meetings throughout the nation with their Senators and Representatives.
Check out the details of some of the meetings members conducted in 2018.
HBA executive officers are encouraged to schedule meetings throughout 2019 when their representatives are home during congressional recesses. Access the House and Senate calendars to see the dates of their in-district work weeks.
NAHB staff can help facilitate meetings, as well. For more information, contact Karl Eckhart or Michael Bezruki at 202-266-8542.
