The purpose of the Governmental Affairs Committee is to consider the impact of governmental actions on matters pertaining to real property. The committee examines and responds to calls for action on federal, state, and local proposals, regulations, and laws. Additionally, committee members conduct candidate interviews and make recommendations to MAAR's Board of Directors to support local, state, and congressional candidates who favor legislation and regulation beneficial to the real estate industry.

Committee members are appointed to staggered six-year terms and prior experience serving on the RPAC Fundraising Committee is preferred. The committee meets monthly and the staff liaison is Ken Scroggs.
