On June 14, 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 starts with a morning briefing on key issues and a guest speaker at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, headquarters for the Midyear Board Meeting.
After a day of Capitol Hill office visits and meetings, the NAHB Legislative Conference concludes with an evening reception back at the Wardman Park.
NAHB’s Legislative Conference rotates with Bringing Housing Home™, when our builders, remodelers and trade partners meet with their members of Congress in their home legislative districts. Bringing Housing Home returns in the spring of 2018.
