NAA Chairman Jerry Wilkinson represented the multifamily housing industry at the recent RNC forum in Tampa and was given the spotlight to ask questions of Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), co-chairman of the Senate Real Estate Caucus, and Rep. Mike Turner (R-Ohio), co-chairman of the House Real Estate Caucus.
Mr. Ferris was a member of multifamily delegates in attendance and commented: "Jerry's questions regarding the impact of potential tax reform in 2013, business interest deductions and carried interest were key topics that needed to be discussed. Jerry did a great job representing the industry and I was glad I was able to support the efforts of NAA and NMHC."
NAA and 18 other real estate organizations joined forces to sponsor these high-profile forums to raise the real estate industry's visibility through a single signature event at each convention. The webcasts will be available later for on-demand viewing on NAA's website at www.naahq.org/governmentaffairs.
