Where Does ABoR Stand?
ABoR's public policy priorities are focused on preserving a high quality of life in Central Texas, providing housing for all in our community, and addressing the implications of our region's rapid growth. View the 2019 Public Policy Agenda here.
Policy positions are established by ABoR's Legislative Management Team (LMT), a Board-appointed steering committee made up of experienced Central Texas REALTORS®. The LMT adopts an annual public policy agenda for ABoR, recommends public policy positions to the Board of Directors, thoroughly vets and recommends candidate endorsements, as well as reviews recommendations made by member policy teams.
All ABoR members have the opportunity to volunteer with policy teams that focus on public policy related to property rights, affordability, growth and development, water and conservation, and transportation. Policy teams report to the LMT, making recommendations for the annual public policy agenda and taking up other issues with a forward-looking focus.
