Advocacy Update – February 2020

February 2020

When the advocacy team began their new roles last year they discovered that several of SPAAR’s position papers required updating. These policies are essential in the Association’s advocacy activities: they allow our members to speak with one voice to outline the REALTOR® perspective on policies affecting homeownership and private property rights.
In January, the SPAAR Board of Directors adopted revised statements on vacant propertiessustainability, and inclusion & non-discrimination. These position papers, along with five others on our website, serve as useful guides to policymakers and political candidates as they consider what REALTORS® believe are in the best interests of our clients and neighbors.
As we head into an important election year, our members can count on staff to proactively position REALTORS® as champions of our communities.
