No AE should miss the AE Institute, the annual event that delivers real estate industry insights and provides a wide range of education designed to help AEs across the country better serve their members.
AEI offers fundamentals of REALTOR® association management, REALTOR® Party updates, enhanced and in-depth MLS programming, and Core Standards implementation.
The 2017 conference kicks off Saturday, March 18, with a keynote address from Joe Moglia, an executive leadership speaker who honed his message of the four pillars of success through his own trials as a business leader and football coach. 2017 NAR President William E. Brown will also present.
The curriculum is divided into these three tracks this year: customer service; peer-to-peer game changers, featuring what your peers are doing across the country to remain innovative and member-focused; and technology and communications, which will also include a look at the changing role of MLSs in the real estate marketplace and association operations.
Back by popular demand is the CEO Program ($300, but sold out) featuring the Disney Institute with a focus on leadership excellence, building collaborative cultures, and quality service.
On Monday, stick around for a special session, “Power Skills for Success: How Top AEs Perform at Higher Levels,” with Jerry Matthews (see p. 18).
AEI also offers opportunities (for additional fees) that count toward earning certifications and designations, including the Certified International Property Specialist, e-PRO®, REALTOR® Certified association Executive, and Certified Professional Standards Administration.
Social events this year include the AE Young Professional Network (YPN) Meet Up, the New AE Networking Reception, the RPAC Major Investor Reception, and the Icebreaker Reception.
