AEC Core Standards Work Group Proposed Enhancements

The Association Executives Committee will consider the AEC Core Standards Work Group’s recommended enhancements to NAR’s Organizational Alignment Core Standards during the May 11, 2016 AEC meeting during the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings in Washington, D.C. The work group met earlier this year to review the Organizational Alignment Core Standards policy and to determine whether enhancements to the policy or the compliance certification process should be recommended to the Board of Directors. If the report and amendments to the policy and the appeal hearing process are approved by the AEC, then the amendments will be recommended to the Executive Committee and Board of Directors. If approved, changes to the Core Standards will be implemented effective with the third cycle, beginning July 1, 2016.

The Core Standards Work Group report was presented during the AE Forum at the 2016 AE Institute in San Antonio, and minor revisions were subsequently made with input received at that time. A copy of the slides from that presentation (also revised following the AE Forum) is available here. If you have any questions about the report prior to the AEC meeting, please email them to
