New AE and GAD Orientation

Newly hired Association Executives, Government Affairs Directors (GADs) and those hired to promote and manage REALTOR® Party activities (less than 18 months in their positions),  are invited to attend a day-and-a-half orientation at the NAR offices in Washington, D.C. The orientation will offer an in-depth opportunity to learn:

  • how REALTOR® Party tools and services for state and local associations can champion association advocacy, outreach and community issues;
  • ways to reach your association’s Minimum Core Standards requirements under “advocacy;”
  • how RPAC can provide you with grants and tools to help increase investments;  
  • how NAR Government Affairs works with state and local associations to promote the REALTOR® federal agenda;
  • how NAR lobbyists and political representatives work with their state and local association counterparts;
  • how NAR legislative and regulatory issues staff work with state and local associations to educate REALTORS® on the important issues facing their business;
  • about NAR economic research tools and products available for you;
  • effective communication methods to relay R.O.I. back to your members .

*This session is offered free of charge to new GADs and AEs (18 months or less in their positions) and provides airfare to and from the training, ground transportation to/from the airport, as well as meals on site. There will be three, scheduled orientations in 2018.  Registration opens approximately 2 months prior to each session.

State and local associations should inform NAR as soon as possible when they have hired a new GAD. Please e-mail Kyle Lambert London with your new GAD's contact information for general communication purposes, as well as to be added to the orientation mailing list.
