Congratulations on Joining the REALTOR® Family!

Whether you are brand-new to the REALTOR® organization or just new to your position, we appreciate all that you do to help our members succeed. Join us to learn about the tools and training you need to be more effective in your role as the chief staff executive of your association.

2023 Summer New AE Orientation

We invite you to join us for NAR’s New AE Orientation session in July to kick-off your career as a new chief staff executive. Please join us for this three-part orientation where you’ll learn more about the REALTOR® organization and the many resources and services available to you from NAR.

Hear from many on the NAR staff team who will provide an overview of key NAR programs, policies, and systems, including the M1 system, Core Standards, Code of Ethics, Membership Polices, and much more!

You’ll also hear from the 2023 Association Executives Committee chair with some practical “when I walked in your shoes” advice. The orientation will include a networking event on July 19 and plenty of opportunities to engage, share ideas, and ask questions with other new chief staff executives who are also navigating new positions.

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.
