National REIA’s mission is to develop, support and promote local real estate investor clubs while serving the interests of the real estate investment industry through networking, education, leadership on legislative issues, and promoting professionalism and standards of excellence in our industry.
A perfect example of the how the National REIA can play a role in protecting the industry’s interests was the monitoring and direct input their legislative delegation had this past summer in Washington, D.C. The National REIA delegation’s mission was to stop HR Bill 1728 (The Mortgage Reform and Anti-Predatory Lending Act).
The National REIA’s delegation met with congressional and senatorial members on key committees working on HR 1728, a bill with specific language in Section 101 (3)(e) that would devastate the real estate investing industry.
From the reports and feedback gained from those meeting, the National REIA took action to broadcast those reports in its Newsletter and website. The call to action in those reports gave members direction and a course of action which included contacts with their local congressmen and women.
April 21, 2010 Is The Third Annual National REIA Day On The Hill
Their work towards stopping HR 1728 continues into 2010. The National REIA will organize its third annual, two-day mass demonstration in Washington, D.C. on April 21 and 22.
