Advocacy Impact Day

Overview

IREM is conducting our Advocacy Impact Day in Washington, DC on March 8 & 9, 2022. The fly-in offers our members an opportunity to meet with their federal legislators and advocate for issues critical to the real estate management industry.

Further information about registration, social distancing protocols, and other pertinent information about the Fly-in will be provided soon.

Meeting with lawmakers in Washington is critical for the future health and growth of the industry, and IREM is making it as easy as possible to make your voice heard. Participating in the Fly-In allows you to:

  • Build relationships with legislators that will only increase in value over time
  • Speak directly to the people with the power to change laws and regulations about issues that matter to you, your business, and the clients you represent
  • Gain valuable exposure and experience
  • Be part of something bigger than yourself

Register for the Advocacy Impact Day

Registration will open in late December – Early January. Keep an eye out for an email with more details.

How to schedule meetings with legislators

  1. Identify your legislators (two Senators and one Rep.)
  2. Submit a meeting request
    • We suggest contacting your legislator’s office 2-4 weeks in advance to schedule your meeting
    • Feel free to use this template letter
    • Many offices will require you to fill out the meeting request form on their website
    • If you’re asked to provide the topics when scheduling your meeting, let them know you are participating in a fly-in and will send them the topics once they are finalized.
    • Ask for 30 minutes (but 15 is fine) and specify where you would like to meet (In their DC office, district office, or virtually)
    • Always follow up with a phone call
  3. Let us know about your meeting
    • Once your meeting is confirmed, please submit the meeting details to IREM Headquarters. You can always edit the information if anything changes.
