Key Contact Program

Promoting effective contact with legislators

The Key Contact Team is a coordinated grassroots effort of PAR. The objective of this network is to promote high quality contacts with individual legislators on matters of importance to the real estate industry. Members of the Key Contact Team are the “Voice for Real Estate” with their designated state legislator. When a key issue is being considered in Committee or on the floor, members of the Key Contact Team are mobilized to relay the industry’s position to their designated legislator. The foundation of this network is the belief that by working together, as a team, Realtors® can have a profound influence in shaping public policy. By generating quality contacts with each of the 253 members of the Pennsylvania General Assembly and the 21 members of the Pennsylvania Congressional delegation, the Realtor® message will undoubtedly be heard.

Role of the Key Contact Team Member

The most important aspect of being a member of the Key Contact Team is having a positive one-on-one personal relationship with your state or federal legislator. This relationship promotes a sense of mutual respect and familiarity. Aside from maintaining this relationship, Key Contacts are called on to perform other functions as well. This could include any of the following:

  • Attending in-district fundraisers for legislators: either with your own funds, or with funding from RPAC
  • Responding to Calls-to-Action
  • Visiting your legislator in the district, Harrisburg, or Washington, DC
  • Remaining current on legislative issues
  • Attending occasional training sessions
  • Developing Realtor® support for your legislator
  • Volunteering on your legislator’s campaign
  • Other activities that further promote a positive relationship.
