2022 Summer New AE Orientation

We invite you to come to NAR’s headquarters in Chicago, or you can join us virtually Monday, July 11 and Tuesday, July 12 for the 2022 Summer New AE Orientation to learn more about the REALTOR® organization and the many resources available to you from NAR.  The goal of the Orientation is to provide a comprehensive overview on key NAR systems, programs, and policies, including the M1 system, Core Standards, Code of Ethics, Membership Polices, and much more! 

Hear presentations from your AE peers, as well as representatives from various NAR groups, and you’ll have a chance to ask questions and join engaging networking breakout discussions with other new chief staff executives.

Registration & Travel

The orientation is by invitation only. If attending in person, NAR will cover most expenses (flight/hotel) for your travel to Chicago for this orientation, although associations will bear some minimal costs. Virtual attendance options will also be available.

There is limited availability and registrations are accepted on a first come, first served basis.  You will receive a detailed agenda and further details on travel plans once your registration is received.
