In addition to the goals set forth by the AE Committee’s various advisory boards and workgroups (including the REALTOR® AE magazine editorial board), the committee will focus on four special initiatives this year.
The first is developing tools, including templates and sample materials, associations can use to conduct live or online orientations for members who are new to an association board of directors. The second goal is to develop materials that will help associations create job descriptions for staff specialty areas, such as member services, education, and communications. The third initiative is intended to identify ways state and local associations can collaborate, resulting in less duplication of effort and greater efficiencies. The fourth goal is to update the AE Competencies and RCE Body of Knowledge document that serves as the foundation for all AEC professional development courses and the RCE exam. Attend the AE Committee meetings at NAR conferences for updates on the progress toward these goals.
