The committee holds multiple meetings throughout the year and garners national and regional market data from its respective members to determine industry activity, trends, or topics that need to be the focus for legislative and/or lobbying efforts.
The goals of the 2018 Research Committee include the completion of an in-depth review of current major research reports and advise on needed changes or adjustments; identify new trends/issues related to the real estate industry and provide research support; and explore and develop improved methods of dissemination of, and ease the access to, research for members and stakeholders.
