The Real Estate Roundtable is a non-profit public policy organization based in Washington, D.C. that represents the interests of real estate. It focuses on policy areas governing tax, capital and credit, environment and energy, and homeland security. The Real Estate Roundtable holds four annual meetings in Washington, D.C. and publishes a weekly electronic newsletter as well as its Annual Report and Policy Agenda.
66% of the organization is made up of members from public and privately owned real estate enterprises, with an additional 20% of members connected to financial services. 3% are involved in asset management. 11% of the organization is real estate trade associations.
Membership is by invitation and is divided between two tiers, Roundtable and President's Council, each with a cap of 100 members. Membership in Roundtable is offered to leaders of national real estate entities or major real estate trade associations. All four annual meetings are open to members of the Roundtable. Membership of the President's Council is also offered to industry leaders, but those whose operations may be more regional. These members are invited to two of the annual meetings, the Annual Meeting and the State of the Industry meeting.
