Lobby Day: Washington Is Calling | NAA Capitol Conference

Lobby Day: Washington Is Calling

Answer the call and join your fellow advocates in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, March 8 to demonstrate the apartment housing industry’s force and lobby for our most pressing issues.

This is your opportunity to introduce yourself to your new members of Congress or strengthen relationships with returning members.

Whether you're new to Lobby Day or a seasoned advocate, you can make an impact. It's a win for you and a big win for the industry. Your participation will support our goal to reach all 535 Congressional offices!

Please Report Your Scheduled Meetings to Us

This year it’s important that we hear from you to ensure that every Congressional office has been reached. All attendees will receive personalized interactive schedules via our new Advocacy365 mobile app. NAA will populate the app with your personal schedules based on the meeting information that you submit, so your timely coordination is important. We also collect this information to promote the industry’s meetings and arrange photography. Please contact Peter Fromknecht, Manager, Grassroots Advocacy, to report your meetings.

Scheduling Your Meetings

If you are in charge of scheduling meetings, you can use the new Advocacy365 mobile app to find the contact information for Congressional schedulers. When introducing your association in your meeting request, please explain how you are affiliated with your local/state association and NAA. If you are not in charge of coordinating meetings on the Hill, please contact the NAA-affiliated association in your area for meeting dates and times.

Lobby Day Issues

The Lobby Day issues are:

  • Reform the Tax Code to Promote Economic Growth and Investment in Rental Housing
  • Reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program
  • Provide for a Right to Cure Period for Alleged ADA Deficiencies


Fact Sheets and Talking Points on the issues will be available soon. Should you have any questions on the issues, please contact Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Greg Brown.  

Webinar

NAA/NMHC will conduct a webinar to brief Capitol Conference participants on the Lobby Day issues. This briefing will also include a training on how to conduct your meeting with your members of Congress. Plenty of time will be provided to answer your questions. It is a “must” for anyone who has scheduled meetings but will not be at the issues briefing. Registration for the webinar will be announced soon.
