Meet the Government Relations Committee
Our Government Relations Committee members are the “first responders” when it comes to tracking legislation and prioritizing, strategizing and executing advocacy efforts. The GRC is the arm by which we fulfill our advocacy role to:
- Serve as a unified voice for the private real estate lending profession;
- Impact state and federal legislation/regulation/policy where it affects our profession;
- Provide a platform for AAPL members’ participation in the democratic process;
- Educate and inform public policy makers, influencers, and citizens with its specialized knowledge and expertise.
This 2019 – 2021 inaugural committee consists of three AAPL team members as Committee President, Vice President and Secretary; and eight AAPL members as First Chair, Legal Chair, Ex-Officio and five Officers. We appoint these volunteers to two-year terms and encourage applications at any time. These applications may be considered for the GRC or ad-hoc sub-committees.

Regional Legislative Monitoring
To better monitor regional legislative activity, each GRC member has a designated “watch” zone. The Watch Zones are outlined visually below; check out each member above to see which region they are assigned to. Contact the GRC for questions and comments on legislative activity at email@example.com.
Ready to get involved?
When it comes to representing the needs of our members in the halls of state and federal legislatures, we need your help. Apply to be considered for ad-hoc committees and/or future GRC roles, or sign up for legislative updates to stay in the loop.
