Getting Started

The REALTOR® Association Models Planning Tool simplifies the tasks of association self-evaluation and planning for enhanced member service though the use of three models of association management: Administrative, Management, and Leadership.

How? First you’ll enter thoughtful answers to the online self-evaluation questionnaire. Then, the results report automatically generated from the questionnaire will provide you with a set of tools to grow your association.

In fact, the Models Planning Tool can be used over and over again several ways:

  • To assess the association's current operating philosophy
  • To identify where the association would like to be
  • To align leadership and staff expectations
  • To identify your professional career planning and development goals
  • To serve as an annual strategic planning tool
  • To help assess specific programs or operations within you association
  • To serve as a structural audit tool for association reorganization
