2021 AEC Goals:

The AEC's areas of focus for 2021 include:

  1. Develop and implement tools and resources, as identified by the 2020 Association Leadership Diversity Work Group, to assist and provide support for associations as they address diversity, equity and inclusion and work toward greater diversity amongst their leadership.
  2. Provide guidance and resources for AEs who want to advance their careers and consider new opportunities in the REALTOR® association. Review the AE Mentor Program and explore how the program can be enhanced to help shepherd AEs through career challenges and opportunities.
  3. Identify best practices and guidelines to assist associations as they navigate governance procedures and strive for optimal member engagement in a new post-COVID virtual world.
  4. Explore the concept of greater innovation and how associations can be more nimble and receptive to risk and more responsive to member needs that support and align with member businesses. Identify strategies and practices that assist associations in adopting a forward-thinking mindset that is in step with the member’s way of doing business.
