Government Affairs

As the voice of the commercial and residential real estate industry in the Washington D.C. area, AOBA is ideally positioned to help our members meet the challenges and capture the opportunities facing our ever-changing industry. With our finger on the pulse, we anticipate, influence, and respond to a wide variety of critical issues and initiatives.

Our relationships with local and state policymakers enable us to effectively mobilize around legislative and regulatory issues to advocate for a competitive, business-friendly environment throughout the region.

Influence the Future of Our Industry

AOBA is a primary resource for policymakers on matters affecting commercial and multifamily real estate. We work to educate policymakers on the potential impacts of proposed legislation on your industry. Members support AOBA’s advocacy efforts by testifying, providing valuable feedback on the impact of proposed legislation on building operations, and joining DC, Maryland, or Virginia's government affairs committees. Register for an upcoming government affairs committee meetings.

Engaging with Policymakers

Communicating directly with policymakers about issues important to you can make a difference. We created the AOBA Advocacy Action Center to provide you the tools to quickly and effectively contact your elected officials directly about issues impacting our industry and make your voice heard.
