NETWORK. In addition to the education, we believe in offering real estate investors the opportunity to connect and build relationships. Our semi-annual conferences allow you to mingle with people from across the state of Wisconsin. We also have local organizations spread out across Wisconsin that provide consistent direct networking with local vendors and other investors.

Our lobbyist ensures that our voices are heard by your legislators when bills are proposed that affect out industry. We also make sure to inform our membership of any pending bills and ones that have passed that affect us.
