2012 GAD Institute

Welcome to 2012 GAD Institute! The NAR GAD Institute is your yearly event to promote education, networking and professional development of state and local REALTOR® association government affairs directors (GADs).

This year we are tying a number of new interactive items to enhance your experience. We hope that you will take the time to help share your experiences, insights and and development opportunities with your peers and fellow GADS and AEs back home.  

Meeting Agenda

Please take some time to study the agenda. We are posting two versions. One for downloading and printing and another for easy web viewing.

Presentations and handouts from the 2012 GAD Institute at Lake are available here. Review your session highlights or see what you missed!


This year we are trying a new way to help deepen your experience by scheduling time for you to drive your own agenda and topics. Check out the schedule for the Unconference and then be sure to post comments and questions on the Unconference Board. 

Upload Your Pictures

We have set up a Flickr uploader so that we can post pictures of your sessions and networking events. It is easy to use. You can also check out the current photos. Remember the last time we were on a boat?

New GAD Directory

Please take a moment to review your stat's GAD list. We are trying to get a final list pulled together and need your help ensuring it is accurate. If it is not, please use the form to let us know and we will correct it.

Tweets are Sweet

Our hashtag is #GAD2012. Please use it wisely! People will be following it back home.
