Governance Game Changer Presidential Advisory Group (PAG)

2018 has been an exciting and transformative year for the National Association of REALTORS®. The NAR Leadership Team is committed to examining our governance structure to ensure we have the best foundation in place to position NAR to operate efficiently and strategically in the future. A Governance Game Changer Presidential Advisory Group (PAG) has been appointed to study NAR’s existing governance structure.

The charge of the Governance Game Changer PAG is to critically examine the following components of governance at the national level:

  1. Structure (member entities, positions, roles, authority, relationships, etc.)
  2. Process (planning, leadership development, etc.)
  3. People (criteria for appointment/election, training, etc.)
  4. Resources (how financial resources are devoted to governance activities)
  5. Operating Environment/Organizational Culture

The PAG will examine research, member feedback, and case studies from both in and outside the real estate industry in order to create a recommended governance structure that achieves efficiency and transparency, allowing the National Association to act deftly and proactively in its second century.

Members are encouraged to participate at the “Your NAR Your Way!” Membership Forums during the 2018 REALTORS® Conference and Expo. Attendees will be asked to share their feedback on NAR’s governance structure and how it can be improved. Two sessions of the forum are scheduled. Please click on the dates below to learn more. 

As the PAG’s work progresses, members will receive periodic updates as well as additional opportunities to share your feedback. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at
