Introduction To “Hill Day”

On Thursday, January 24, Washington REALTORS® will hold the annual “Hill Day in Olympia” at the Hotel RL, 2300 Evergreen Park Drive SW, Olympia, WA 98502.

9:00 AM General Session – “Hill Day” will begin at 9:00 AM in the downstairs ballrooms with a “General Information Session” to explain what will happen during the day, hear from legislative leaders, provide you with an explanation of the issues we will be discussing with legislators, and prepare you to “Go Up On The Hill” at the State Capitol and meet with legislators.

11:30 AM SKCR Caucus with Box Lunch – Then, from 11:30 – 12:30, attendees from SKCR will caucus together at a working lunch (with box lunches) to answer your questions, review the schedule of appointments we’ve made to meet with legislators, and make sure any “1st Time Attendees” are linked-up with experienced colleagues to ensure it’s all “no worries” and a great experience for everyone!
