Government Affairs

Welcome to SILVAR's Government Affairs Department! The SILVAR Government Affairs Team serves as a resource for our members. We monitor local, state and federal government issues and activities for the benefit of our membership. The team also serves as the Association's representatives to local governments, and advocates for the real estate industry and property owners.

The Government Affairs Department is the voice of Realtors® in local government. It works to protect SILVAR Realtors® from local ordinances, rules and regulations that would be a danger to their businesses. The Government Affairs Director informs and advises the Board of Directors and the local Legislative Committees on pertinent developments in local regulatory and political issues.

The information contained in the following pages is intended to provide important regulatory and government contact information for Realtors® to assist their success. First, there is a government contact guide, which has phone numbers for major departments in SILVAR cities as well as contact information for the county, state and federal elected officials. This is followed by information on local sign regulations and business license taxes. Members with additional questions should contact SILVAR.

While this information is intended as a resource for day-to-day business, successful government advocacy requires an active membership. There are many opportunities for SILVAR members to get involved in government affairs through Local Government Relations Committees and SILVAR's Political Action Committee. Most importantly, to get involved, you should pay your political survival dues and remember to vote during elections.
