Internal News Service

NAR’s Internal News Service (INS) provides two different email reports to NAR audiences on NAR legislative and regulatory activities, events, programs, products, legal analysis, and other late breaking news.

Internal News Service Reports

AE INS Report

Emailed every Wednesday to association executives, association staff, and regional MLS executives. Contains the latest news, updates, and reports critical to REALTOR® associations.

Special INS Report

Emailed when there is breaking news to report to NAR audiences.

Subscribe to the INS

The INS report for AEs is automatically sent to all REALTOR® Association Executives listed in the National REALTORS Database System (NRDS) every Wednesday, so there’s no need to subscribe if your current email appears in your association’s NRDS profile.

The INS for AEs is also sent automatically to association senior staff (communication directors, MLS directors, government affairs directors, member services directors, and education directors listed in NRDS). Other association staff can subscribe to the INS by sending an email to

The INS for AEs is available to REALTOR® association staff only. The INS for Large Brokers is automatically sent to NAR's list of the top 500 brokerages. The INS for NAR's Board of Directors is automatically sent to the current members of the Board.

Changing Your Email Address

All email changes need to be made through your local association's access to NRDS or through your state association if they handle NRDS data. NAR cannot make changes to local association's records. To check how your association data is listed in NRDS, visit the State and Board Leadership Directory. Remember INS reports go to the email listed for the Association Executive not the email listed for the association in general, so check that both emails are correct.

For large brokers, contact your local association to change your email address in the national system.

For information on changing your association's records in NRDS, please call NAR's Member Support, 800/874-6500.

Not Getting Your INS Reports?

Some INS recipients have had their email address deactivated by our e-newsletter vendor because attempts to send the reports to that address have bounced back to the vendor nine times over the course of three weeks. If you're suddenly not getting your INS report every Wednesday, please follow the steps below.

  1. Check to see that you do not have an unusually low size limit for your incoming email, at the email client level and at the server level.
  2. Do not have HTML email blocked.
  3. Have you opted-out of any NAR emails—and inadvertently opted out of all NAR email? If so, let us know.
  4. Whitelist the address from which the INS reports come which is: and the IP address: Add these addresses to your mail client address book and contact your ISP to have them whitelist these addresses as well.
