The Greater Harrisburg Association of REALTORS® Government Affairs Committee hosts three breakfasts a year. They include the Legislative Breakfast, Municipal Officials Breakfast and County Commissioners Breakfast. Each of these is an opportunity to discuss important topics in the real estate industry and connect REALTORS® with local government officials.
Please keep an eye out for information regarding upcoming breakfasts! Contact Margaret Parsons at Margaret@ghar.realtor if you have any questions.
In 2023, we enjoyed discussing vital issues like affordable housing and the workforce with our Central Pennsylvania Legislators. A big thank you to Rep. Sheryl Delozier, Rep. Barb Gleim, Rep. Dawn Keefer, Rep. Perry Stambaugh, Rep. Patty Kim, Rep. Tom Mehaffie, Rep. Justin Fleming, Rep. Thomas Kutz and Rep. David Madsen, as well as Ben Martin (Sen. Bob Casey’s Office), Jay Ostrich (Congressman Scott Perry’s Office), and BJ Sieg (PA Senator Mike Regan’s Office) for attending!
Municipal Officials Breakfast
In 2023, Panelists George Pomeroy and Scott Drzyzga from Shippensburg University’s Center for Land Use and Sustainability and Mike Ross, President of Franklin County Area Economic Development Corporation, discussed housing affordability, commercial activity, regulations, zoning, parking requirements, workforce housing and the labor market.
The breakfast is an excellent opportunity for REALTORS® to discuss important real estate issues with our local municipal officials. Thank you to all the municipalities who attended!
