NAA's Government Affairs!

COVID-19 has led to an exodus of Americans from the nation’s largest cities to smaller tier cities and towns. An influx of progressive-leaning households are changing the electorate wherever they go, and in turn, transforming state and local legislatures from solidly red to shades of purple or increasingly blue. As rental housing industry allies dwindle and centrists are replaced with hardline progressive policymakers, the job of government affairs professionals and association staff has become harder than ever before.

In the fifth installment of the GART Virtual Learning Series, we will help you gear up for the difficult legislative sessions that lie ahead in 2021 with expert advice from government affairs professionals who operate in the heart of progressive communities.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Hear advocacy strategies from industry colleagues that can be applied to your unique circumstances.
  • Develop messaging that best protects the industry from the incoming onslaught of adverse legislation.
  • Learn how to successfully adjust your approach on difficult issues in spite of changing political dynamics.

Presented by Catie Lane Bailey, Lobbyist and Policy Advisor, Tennessee Apartment Association; Charley Goss, Government and Community Affairs Manager, San Francisco Apartment Association; Trish Baumer, Director of Government Affairs, Greater Boston Real Estate Board; Moderator: Nicole Upano, Director of Public Policy, National Apartment Association
