That was the excited response from association executives when Dolly Matten, RCE, AE at Greater Lakes Association of REALTORS®, Minnesota, and Breanne Gingerich, director of marketing for the National Association of REALTORS®, took the stage at the 2023 AE Institute to unveil NAR’s reimagined Safety Toolkit for Associations.
The kit’s goal: to help associations easily create or build on an existing safety program by offering ready-to-use resources that AEs can just plug and play—without the need to build something from scratch.
“REALTORS® face a variety of risks every day, from meeting strangers in empty houses to handling sensitive client data. With this toolkit, our members have access to a comprehensive set of best practices, guidelines and resources that can make the difference between life and death and help them operate with confidence.”
—Dolly Matten, RCE, Greater Lakes Association of REALTORS®
In July, NAR added the 30-Day Safety Month Plan for Associations to the toolkit to help associations plan for REALTOR® Safety Month in September. Last year the plan received more than 1,500 downloads.
