New Core Standards Course Aids Volunteer Leaders

Association executives will want to direct their volunteer leaders to a new Core Standards course that provides presidents, presidents-elect, and other volunteer leaders with the knowledge and skills necessary to help their staff teams complete the National Association of REALTORS®’ annual Core Standards requirements.

The course, which debuted in February, gives leaders an overview of NAR’s six Core Standards and the compliance procedures that ensure associations are providing services their members need to be successful.

NAR adopted Core Standards to ensure that REALTOR® associations provide a consistently high level of service regardless of their size or location. To ensure strategic alignment at all levels of the REALTOR® family, associations and commercial overlay boards are required to comply with the Core Standards each year as a condition of their charter. In that regard, the Core Standards support professionalism in the industry and ensure that REALTOR® associations continue to add value for members.

This one-hour, interactive online course, which includes videos, checklists, best practices, and knowledge checks, is available on NAR’s Center for REALTOR® Development learning platform.
