Breaking Down the Changes to the Code

Training Schedule for Understanding and Enforcing the Code of Ethics Changes Approved by the NAR Board of Directors on November 13, 2020

NAR will host monthly trainings to provide guidance on the changes to the Code of Ethics that were approved by the NAR Board of Directors on November 13, 2020, and to provide an opportunity to ask questions of our policy experts.

An event reminder from Zoom will be emailed prior to each session with a link to join the meeting. If you miss an email, the same link is used for each session so you can revisit a previous email to attend any meeting. These trainings will be recorded, and will be posted to this page shortly after each session.

These trainings are optional for members of the National Association of REALTORS®, and are intended to provide guidance to board attorneys, hearing panelists, grievance committee members, association staff and counsel, and all other members regarding the latest changes to the Code of Ethics. NAR does not require members to attend these trainings, and doing so does not count toward the new or continuing member Code of Ethics requirements or Continuing Education credit.
