APRO 2016 Dave Egan Legislative Conference

The best way to assure that the rent-to-own industry receives favorable legislation is for rental dealers to work together in forming a successful grassroots campaign.

2016 is the year for APRO’s “In-Store Legislative Conference” where APRO members are encouraged to schedule meetings with their members of Congress at one of their RTO stores.

APRO asks for members to focus on the following weeks to schedule in-store visits to join fellow APRO members across the country joining the same effort. These weeks provide the best opportunity when members of Congress will be in their home districts. But if these dates are not good, just schedule them another time and make sure to let us know so we can log them and promote your great effort.

May 2nd - 6th

May 31st - June 3rd

June 28th - July 1st

August 1st - September 2nd

(The Senate is July 18th to September 2nd)

October 3rd - November 10th
