ABOUT THE EVENT

AREAA is a powerful national voice not only for its members—housing and real estate professionals—but the communities they serve. Each year, AREAA hosts a policy summit where we advocate on behalf of AAPIs to key decision-makers in the U.S. Senate, House of Representatives, Government-Sponsored Enterprises as well as important policymakers in the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and other relevant government departments and agencies. 

This year’s summit will be virtual, but the goal remains the same—advocating for greater homeownership access for AAPIs. At the 2020 Virtual Policy Summit, we will be talking to political, industry, and policy leaders about the issues most important to our community.
