Legislative Conference

Registration is open!

APRO’s Legislative Conference is the most important event of the year for the rent-to-own industry. It is open to seasoned Washington advocates as well as to conference and RTO newcomers. APRO invites rental dealers and vendors of all sizes to come to Washington to advocate for issues that are critical to a thriving rent-to-own industry.

With more than 60 new senators and representatives inaugurated earlier this year, it is crucial that they know and understand the rent-to-own industry and its benefits for the U.S. economy. APRO’s Legislative Conference is the perfect vehicle to make that happen. Help protect the future of our industry while enjoying the camaraderie of fellow APRO members and a slice of Washington, D.C.


To register, contact us at (800) 204-2776, ext. 111, or at twendele@rtohq.org.
