Public Policy and Governance meeting on Tax Day

Here’s the agenda for tomorrow’s PPAG meeting at VAR’s Headquarters. For those who don’t know, the PPAG committee helps to set the VAR’s legislative agenda for the Association. I’m looking forward to the discussion about convicted felons. If anyone ever has any questions, please let me know. A lot happens in these meetings that directly affect Realtors’ businesses; it’s incumbent on all Realtors to pay attention to what happens here.

      1. I think it is very cool that you are sharing the meeting agenda here. It is good to at least have some idea as to what is going on.

        I wrote a post back in October about the felony issue. I actually received a comment from a convicted felon that I found very interesting: http://realestatezebra.com/felons-who-lie-can-have-a-virginia-real-estate-license#comments

      2. Thank you Jim for linking to Shawn Harris’ blog post on Convicted Felons getting a license and becoming Realtors.
