LAST CALL...for any Ohio REALTOR interesting in being a part of our 2021 Federal & State Political Coordinator Virtual Training on March 17, 2021, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The deadline to register for this FREE program -- open to all current political coordinators and any member interested in participating in this critically important part of our advocacy effort -- is Monday, March 15 at 5 p.m.

The program is available at no cost, but registration is required -- CLICK HERE to secure a spot.

Political Coordinators are REALTOR members who are paired with a member of Congress or the Ohio General Assembly and member of Ohio's Congressional Delegation. Our Political Coordinators serve as a point-person on real estate issues affecting our nation and state. Political Coordinators put a face on the issues that are being debated from the Capitol to the Statehouse.

Our virtual training program will allow you to hear from key staff, elected officials and learn about the best practices for grassroots lobbying. The schedule for our March 17 training includes:

  • A panel discussion featuring Sen. Nathan Manning (R-District 13) and Rep. Brigid Kelly (D-District 31) on the importance of grassroots advocacy;
  • The nuts and bolts of being a political coordinator featuring NAR's Zack Rubin-McCarry;
  • Ohio REALTORS' External Affairs team -- Carrie Arblaster, Veronica Cardello and Beth Wanless -- providing timely information on an array of topics;
  • Finally, 2021 Political Advisory Chair Tim Damiano, President Seth Task and CEO Scott Williams will share insights on this critically important program.

Since its launch three years ago, Ohio's Political Coordinator program has allowed the organization to pair REALTORS directly with legislators in the Ohio General Assembly. The Coordinators strengthen the industry's voice on issues of concern to the profession.

We encourage any REALTOR interested in participating to CLICK HERE and register for the FREE program prior to March 15 at 5 p.m. If you have any questions, please contact Veronica Cardello at .
