Public Policy Committee

The mission of the Public Policy Committee is to review, develop and promote policy to guide the association in the legislative and regulatory arenas.


The NVAR Public Policy Committee tracks legislative activities at all levels of government and recommends policy positions to the NVAR Board of Directors. Committee members assist in planning special annual legislative events, such as the legislative reception and the trip to the state Capitol, as well as mobilizing grassroots participation in calls-for-action on issues campaigns. Committee members must commit to attending at least nine monthly meetings each year.
