BCREA's Provincial Lobbying Conference: Government Liaison Days
TAGS: Government Liaison Days
On October 15 and 16, 90 delegates met at the Hotel Grand Pacific in Victoria for BCREA's Government Liaison (GL) Days. Please click here to view the GL Days 2018 summary video.
The conference gave attendees the opportunity to first familiarize themselves with this year's three advocacy priorities—transparency in real estate transactions, limited dual agency and tax fairness for owners and new buyers—and get a deeper understanding of BC's political landscape and the lobbying skills they would need for successful MLA meetings.
MLAs praise REALTOR® engagement
In total, meetings were set up with 74 of the province's 87 MLAs. Our government relations advisors at Counsel Public Affairs have told us that MLAs have praised member boards and delegates for their thoughtful, productive approach to these meetings, which provided REALTOR® insight on issues important to MLA's constituencies.
Congratulations to all the member boards and delegates for their successful work in paving the way for closer relationships with all MLAs. The success of Government Liaison Days is just one indication that REALTORS® voices are being heard.
