LARPAC Bus Trip To Baton Rouge

LARPAC Bus Trip to BR

Take this opportunity to add your voice to the largest Political Action Committee in the country - the REALTOR® Political Action Committee! Join your fellow REALTORS® as they spend a day in Baton Rouge for REALTOR® Day at the Capitol on Tuesday, May 2. This event will bring together REALTORS® from across the state to unite in one common goal - to advocate on behalf of consumers to protect homeownership in Louisiana.

NOMAR wants to make it easy for our members to get in on the action, so we’re providing a bus from the NOMAR Metairie office to the Hilton Capitol Center and back. The bus will depart at 8 a.m. on May 2 and return by 10 p.m. Registration with Louisiana REALTORS® is $79, but it’s free for the first 55 NOMAR LARPAC contributors who sign up! NOMAR members who have not contributed to LARPAC in 2017 can still be part of the bus trip and all events for only $35.

Join us on May 2 and make sure the REALTOR® voice is heard!
