The FPCs, as they are called, will be taking part in the Midyear meetings held annually in the spring by the National Association of REALTORS®. This year they will get a chance to talk to elected officials about the need to make sure lending standards are favorable for prospective homebuyers, among other issues that affect IAR’s 41,000 members.
The Illinois Association of REALTORS® has FPCs assigned to every congressional district and the state’s senators. Their job is to forge relationships with elected officials at the federal level and to be a ready source of information about the housing market and its impact on the U.S. economy.
To learn more about the FPCs and the important role they play in protecting REALTOR® livelihoods, go to www.illinoisrealtor.org/government/fpc.
Look for updates on what the FPCs are up to as the week progresses.
