The power of the home building industry lies with its grassroots advocacy efforts. Participating in this year’s Legislative Conference will give NAHB members the unparalleled opportunity to lobby members of Congress to protect their business and industry, establish relationships and ensure that NAHB’s issues are heard by Washington policymakers.

These meetings, held on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., are a critical part of the Federation’s advocacy efforts to keep housing issues a priority with federal lawmakers. Your participation can make a huge difference. Now more than ever, it is critical for lawmakers to understand the industry’s key issues as housing is poised to play a critical role in the nation’s economic recovery.

Event Details

Bus transportation will be available from the Washington Hilton hotel starting at 7:30 a.m., with the last bus departing from Capitol Hill to the Washington Hilton hotel at 4 p.m. Please join your fellow grassroots lobbyists for a reception with NAHB leadership at 5 p.m. at the Heights Courtyard on the hotel's first floor.

Preparing for the Legislative Conference

Your first step is to schedule the meetings with your members of Congress in June. Below are links to resources to help you prepare for your meetings.

Issues Briefing Webinar Replay 

In this webinar replay, the NAHB government affairs team outlines what members can expect during the 2022 Legislative Conference. The team also provides an overview of the key messages to deliver to members of Congress.  

Potential Changes to U.S. Capitol Visitors’ Policy

In response to the pandemic and enhanced security protocols on Capitol Hill, your visits this year may look different from previous meetings with your members of Congress. The House Sergeant of Arms is expected to release new guidance for visitors in the coming weeks. We will update members on this new policy as soon as it is available.

However, some members of Congress may still only hold meetings virtually. Should your member of Congress be holding virtual meetings, associations are invited to utilize the video or audio technology platform of their choosing. Once meetings are scheduled, please let your NAHB Legislative Director know to ensure they are able to attend and provide issue briefings.
