Editor’s note: BAAA Government Affairs Director Jeff Rogo retires Feb. 1 after 16 years of service. Thanks Jeff for all you’ve done for our members and the industry!
Hello everyone. I’m honored to be taking the reins from Jeff and encourage you all to reach out on any issues of interest to you and to send along tips about ordinances and legislation of concern. Among other things, I am a former journalist, so I am looking forward to monitoring, reporting and holding accountable our elected and planning officials when it comes to law and policies affecting our industry.
I also am practiced in this vocation, having served as the Government Affairs Director for the Outer Banks (N.C.) Association of Realtors, Homebuilders Association and Chamber of Commerce. To sharply define and advance our goals, BAAA will establish its first-ever Legislative Committee led by co-chairs Chris Koback and Christina Knight. Email Chris - email@example.com – or me – Kevin@baaahq.org – to express your interest in joining up.
