Going Global

The Northern Virginia Association of REALTORS® hosted its third annual international-themed “convention-within-a-convention,” Global Connect, during its October 2021 hybrid convention and trade show. An initiative that helped NVAR achieve Diamond recognition in the National Association of REALTORS®’ 2021 Global Business Council Achievement Program, this year’s Global Connect featured visits with ambassadors to the United States from Moldova and Guatemala.

Moldovan Ambassador Eugen Caras joined members at a luncheon held at NVAR’s Fairfax, Va., headquarters, offering a gift of Moldovan wine and speaking about potential partnership opportunities. Also as part of Global Connect programming, NVAR member Mayra Pineda, the NAR President’s Liaison to Guatemala, visited the Guatemalan embassy in Washington, D.C., to conduct a recorded interview with Ambassador Alfonso Quiñónez Lemus.

As part of its global strategy, NVAR develops programming with its standing Hispanic, Korean, Vietnamese, and International Business Forum groups and offers annual Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) training. In 2021, the association participated in an International Day of Friendship and held a Global Success Month featuring content designed to build members’ global expertise and opportunities  jointly with the Long Island (N.Y.) Board of REALTORS®, the Miami Association of REALTORS®, and the North Carolina Association of REALTORS®.
