Dear Member and Supporter,
In an economic study commissioned by your Florida Vacation Rental Managers Association we learned there is a $31 billion annual impact on the state’s tourism economy created by our industry alone. In other words, vacation rental professionals are a huge part of Florida’s future, and this is why we need the state’s elected leaders to better understand who we are and why we matter. Developing relationships with policymakers during the campaign process will do this.
For that reason, we have formed the Florida Vacation Rental Political Committee. This political committee will raise funds and participate in future elections. By working closely with FL VRMA lobbyist Lori Killinger, we will ensure that financial resources are deployed strategically so that key elected officials recognize the importance of vacation rental ownership and management in Florida.
Are you ready to help defend our rights?
Over the last few years we witnessed how important it is to protect and defend our industry from efforts to regulate us out of business. Opponents are ready to ban vacation rentals, and they use the disguise of an interest in public safety to do it. So, just as you set aside money for insurance to protect your property, I am asking you to give to this political committee to protect your property rights. How much is it worth to protect your business?
Instead of an individual donation here or there, I am asking you to join with vacation rental professionals from all around Florida. Together, as one industry, the political committee will give us the loudest possible voice in the political process. A donation of any size is appropriate and all contributions are voluntary. The more you have at stake, the more I would ask you to give.
PLEASE contribute today by sending your check to the address below or filling out our online donor form at www.fvrma.org We thank you for your continued support.
Donations can be sent to:
