Work Group Purpose

To research and identify the viability of an association peer-to-peer review process that provides an opportunity for associations to request a review of their association operations and governance by the staff of other associations.  Pending the outcome, establish guidelines for such a program. 

Meeting Activity

The work group conducted a review and update of the existing NAR REALTOR® Association Resource Exchange (RARE) database. The RARE database is a repository of association documents submitted by REALTOR® associations -- sample strategic plans, job descriptions, policies, procedures, etc. -- that all associations have access to through The work group is currently collecting new submissions for the database which will launch by year-end.
