Gay Realtor Association NAGLREP Says “Meet Us in DC May 11-13″

The National Association of Gay & Lesbian Real Estate Professionals (NAGLREP) is proud to announce our invitation by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) to participate in the forum Tomorrow’s Leaders: Engaging the Next Generation: Equal Opportunity-Cultural Diversity Forum during the NAR Midyear meetings in Washington, DC.  The forum is scheduled for May 11, from 12-2pm and the location is soon to be announced.

The forum interactive dialogue  includes Rock the Vote’s CEO and facilitators for round table discussion from the National Association of Gay & Lesbian Real Estate Professionals, the Young Professionals Network, and the Asian Real Estate Association of America.   Participants in the forum are encouraged to interact, and take away a new appreciation for the value of reaching out, encouraging and recognizing new leaders.

This is the first time a gay real estate organization has been invited to discuss LGBT issues during a NAR meeting, and it is exciting.  NAGLREP will host a cocktail party May 11th from 5-8pm for members and guests to celebrate at Mova Lounge.   Please attend the forum if you are available, and RSVP to naglrep@gmail.com if you would like to attend the cocktail party.

On May 12th, NAGLREP will attend a second Equal Opportunity – Cultural Diversity Committee (EOC) meeting from 10-12pm, and later that day visit Capitol Hill for NAR’s “Hill Day” to discuss with legislators our goal to add LGBT protections to federal fair housing laws.

The final day of our visit to DC on Thursday May 13th is highlighted with two special events.  From 10-12pm NAGLREP members will meet privately with NAR staff member Fred Underwood of the EOC committee.   Then from 1-5:30pm during NAR’s Professional Standards Committee meeting, a final vote will decide our proposal (via the Wisconsin Realtor Association) to amend the NAR Code of Ethics, also known as Rule #10, to prohibit REALTOR discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Meet us in DC!
