Legislative Day 2023 

Wednesday, May 3, 2023


Legislative Day Scholarship Program

C.A.R.’s Legislative Day Scholarship program is back. This program was designed to help local associations bring new members to Legislative Day who have never experienced it before. The associations can be reimbursed a certain amount for bringing these “first-timers” to Sacramento for Legislative Day and the money can be used to help underwrite travel, hotel, and meals.

AOR Submission Form
 (For local staff only) 

Here’s how it works:

  1. Local associations identify and recruit “never been to Legislative Day” REALTORS®. They must be able to participate in the Legislative Day 101 webinar on either April 25th at 2:00pm OR April 26th at 10:00am, and attend both the Morning Briefing and the office visit itself at Legislative Day on Wednesday, May 3rd, 2023.

  2. Local associations will submit their Scholarship names to C.A.R. between March 1st and April 7th using the Scholarship Registration form. Email the completed form to [email protected].  We only have a certain number of registrations we can accommodate, so registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. We will notify you by April 10th of who has been registered. Any names submitted who we can’t register initially will be put on a wait list determined by when their name is submitted. Again, we will notify you if we are able to reimburse for that REALTOR®.

  3. After Legislative Day, you just submit the final form, certifying that those registered attended the Morning Briefing and the office visit. C.A.R. will send your association a check and then you reimburse your members as appropriate.


March 1– Initial registration open

April 7– Registration closes

April 25  or April 26 – Legislative Day 101 webinar. JUST ATTEND ONE.
Register for the Legislative Day 101 Webinar: Choose either April 25th at 2:00pm OR April 26th at 10:00am

May 3 – Legislative Day

June 3 – deadline to submit final reimbursement form to C.A.R.

The fine print:
  1. Only REALTORS® can be registered for this program.
  2. The AOR is responsible for determining if the member they are registering has attended Legislative Day previously.
  3. All members attending Legislative Day through this program must agree to attend the Legislative Day 101 webinar prior to Legislative Day and at least two leadership training events AFTER Legislative Day conducted via conference call and webinar.
  4. All members attending Legislative Day through this program must attend the Morning Briefing and the office visit to be eligible.
  5. The amount of the scholarship is determined by the distance between the local association’s office and the Sacramento Convention Center as listed in MapQuest.
  6. Scholarship funds CANNOT be used to reimburse members for contributing to the REALTOR® Action Fund. If they wish to attend the Capitol Reception, they must be contributors to RAF, and again, they cannot legally be reimbursed for contributing.
  7. C.A.R. will reimburse the association and the individual association is responsible for reimbursing the member if the member paid out of pocket.
  8. Reimbursable expenses include mileage, airfare, bus rental, meals, lodging.
  9. For those associations over 250 miles away from Sacramento, we have set aside two spots for each association over 1000 members and one spot for each association with under 1000 members. You must submit your names by April 7th, or you will lose those slots. All unused slots will go to those on the waiting list beginning April10th. Again, we will notify you if we are able to reimburse for that REALTOR®.

For associations over 250 miles away from Sacramento:

We have set aside two spots for each association over 1000 members, and one spot for each association with under 1000 members. You must submit your names by April 7th or you will lose those slots.
