Vice Chair: John Gormley, RCE
Liaison: Christian Barnes

Goal #1

To plan the 2023 AE Institute curriculum by identifying programming issues, trends, and knowledge needs of REALTOR® association executives by reaching out to and involving a broad base of internal and external REALTOR® organization constituencies and subject matter experts. Programming should be tied in with the NAR Strategic Plan and AE Core Competencies.

Expected Outcome

By tying AEI programming directly to NAR’s Strategic Plan/Priorities, AEI strives to educate AEs at the highest level on NAR initiatives and goals, as well as industry best-practices, so they can serve members at the highest level possible. The course, speaker, and overall program rating for the 2023 Institute are 4.0 or above (on a 5.0 scale, with 5.0 being the highest).

Action/Update

Goal #2

Incorporate more structured networking opportunities into the 2023 curriculum.

Expected Outcome

Attendees will have a range of networking opportunities from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave to maximize the exposure they have to various REALTOR® association management practices from around the country, which is a main reason they attend the AE Institute.

Action/Update

Goal #3

Create the 2023 curriculum through content curated by the AEI Advisory Board as well as through targeted speaker presentation proposals.  

Expected Outcome

Allowing the Board to create content as well as rely on trusted content and presenters lets them bring the best of both to attendees and ensure their AE Institute experience delivers what they need to successfully serve their members.

Action/Update

Goal #4

The 2022 AEI Advisory Board will contribute programming ideas to the AEI Year Round Webinar series (a spin-off of AEI).

Expected Outcome

The AE Institute Advisory Board plans an annual curriculum that ensures association executives across the country, regardless of their ability to travel, have the tools they need to manage the REALTOR® organization and offer the products and services that help ensure members’ success.

Action/Update

Goal #5

Work with staff to enhance the visibility of the AEI mobile app and make it the trusted source for any and all AEI information.  

Expected Outcome

The mobile app is launched in the fourth quarter of 2022 and the Board helps push out messaging that highlights the app as the main source for all AEI information. Board members serve as liaisons to the AE community to help promote the app and its usefulness before, during, and after the event.
