SMAR members enjoy the opportunity to meet and discuss issues with local legislators.  The annual event is held early in the legislative session to allow the Southern Maryland delegation to hear from REALTORS® and to be clear on where they stand before legislative hearings on those issues are held.

Participation in legislative events such as these are an important SMAR member benefit.  SMAR’s efforts to keep tabs on legislative trends affecting real estate are essential.
