Local, state, and nationally, 2015 brought much success to the REALTOR® Party. This success could not have been achieved without the dedication of our valuable REALTOR® volunteers who serve on HAR’s Political Affairs Advisory Group (PAAG), Governmental Affairs Advisory Group (GAAG), and Political Affairs Advisory Leadership (PAAL) in the Bay Area and Fort Bend and Montgomery Counties. Below are highlights of members involved in the political process, in partnership with staff, who strive to make a positive difference in their communities.
HAR’s reputation in the community and among elected officials is second to none in terms of respect and influence. With teamwork, we can keep it that way. One of the Association’s primary objectives has always been and will continue to be to protect and promote the REALTOR® profession. This includes the careers and businesses of HAR members, the marketplace in which they practice, and the concept and freedoms created by private property ownership and possession. REALTOR® volunteers serving on the PAAG, GAAG, and PAAL play an important role in the achievement of this objective.
The key to HAR’s success in the governmental affairs arena is for REALTORS® to engage in HAR’s political process. Through our combined efforts, we can positively influence the outcome of an election or an issue. It is only through engagement that REALTORS® are able to make an impact and help enact policies that will enhance the rights of property owners and ultimately protect the REALTOR® profession.
Thank you so much for your volunteerism and dedication to your communities and to the REALTOR® cause!
We look forward to working with you again next year!
