Thank you for your interest in NAR's Global Achievement Program. We are pleased that you have decided to join over 130 of the country's leading REALTOR® associations in bringing global business awareness to your members.

About NAR's Global Achievement Program

The Global Achievement Program is designed to recognize and reward the most active associations in global business. Among the over 130 global business councils nationwide, each of these organizations has demonstrated the utmost commitment to helping members capture their share of the global real estate market in the United States, in addition to connecting their council and members to the global community in their local area.

Participating councils are divided into four status classifications based on their level of activity: Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. A council need not meet every criterion listed for a given status level if the size or demographics of its parent association do not warrant or allow it to do so. Those councils achieving each status classification are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and announced by the National Association of REALTORS® Engagement Team. A council's status year begins at NAR's REALTORS® Conference & Expo.

Councils are evaluated in five focus areas: Business Plan, Marketing & Communication, Events/Education, Outreach, and Benchmarking.

Read best practices from past Achievement Program applications and listen to the audio series, Platinum Perspectives for first-hand insight into the award-winning programming at state and local associations across the U.S.

The 2023 Global Achievement Program Application will be open from August 25, 2023 thru 11:59pm CT on September 22, 2023.
