NVR General Counsel, lobbyist share insights in community
Nevada REALTORS® continues to work to educate members and consumers around the state on its advocacy efforts and mission statement. On Saturday, NVR General Counsel Tiffany Banks and NVR's contract lobbyist Jenny Reese, of Carrara Nevada, were guest speakers for Judge Jim Spoo's paralegal course, discussing Nevada's laws and legislature.
Reese explained the impacts of lobbying for a large trade association, specifically Nevada REALTORS. Banks focused on the Silver state's legal process and the importance of how legal language is drafted. Banks said she was impressed with the students' eagerness to learn about the legislative process and hear about the behind-the-scenes work that goes on during the biennium's legislative session.
