Welcome new REALTOR® Association Executives!
Regardless of how long you’ve been on the job—whether it’s been five days or five months—you’ve probably realized by now that your career in REALTOR® association management is full of special rewards and challenges. The scope of your job is broad and your responsibilities can seem to be never-ending. Sometimes just knowing where to start is the hard part, but be assured, help is here.
New AEs are invited twice a year to the Chicago NAR headquarters to participate in a day and a half orientation introducing NAR programs, resources, and staff essential to their new role. For questions about the orientation, contact Krystal Allen.
Below you will find a checklist of job functions and responsibilities that can guide you through your first weeks and months on the job. You’ll also find invaluable advice from your peers, which supports the commonly held belief among AEs that you can learn more from your AE peers than from any textbook or class. There’s also a multitude of information on policies and procedures, references, and resources that will help you today as you’re learning the ropes and that will serve as a valuable reference for many years to come.
For your reference, you may access a roster of new Association Executives, which provides contact information for new AEs by state.
