In 2018, NAR Leadership Academy participants will have the opportunity to learn from industry leaders through a combination of in-person events and online learning. The experience will begin in January of 2018 and culminate with graduation at the 2018 REALTORS® Conference and Expo in Boston, Massachusetts.
NAR’s 2018 Leadership Academy will include up to nine in-person and online sessions that will address leadership training and NAR governance. These sessions will expose future NAR leaders to topics, persons, and scenarios that will enhance their working knowledge of leadership.
Participation in the entire program is required. If a participant misses one session (in-person or online), the Advisory Board will decide on how the session will be made up. If a participant misses two sessions, they will be dropped from the program and encouraged to reapply. Selection for subsequent year's program cannot be guaranteed.
The time commitment expected of Leadership Academy participants includes monthly online interaction and attendance at the following in-person events:
- January 24-25: Washington, D.C. (arrival early evening on Jan. 23)
- May 14: Washington, D.C. (REALTORS® Legislative Meetings and Trade Expo, May 14-19)
- August 6-7: Chicago, IL (arrival early evening on Aug. 5)
- October 31: Boston, MA (REALTORS® Conference and Expo, October 31-November 5)
Please note: Academy social events are for business networking. Please respect that invitations to Academy functions are for participants only, unless otherwise noted or approved.
