At the Conference— A Century of Pride and Professionalism: NAR’s Code of Ethics
Nov. 11, 2012; 9:30 a.m.–12 p.m. and 1–3:30 p.m.
Every four years, members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are required to complete a Code of Ethics training class. The deadline for the current four-year cycle is around the corner: Dec. 31, 2012.
The training enables you to identify principles in the Code’s Preamble—an aspirational statement about what the organization stands for—and to learn how the Code compares and contrasts with the precepts of general business ethics.
