The vigorous debate within the family of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® over our Political Survival Initiative has forced us to look in the mirror and reflect on some fundamental questions: What is the value of NAR? Why does it exist? And whats expected of its leaders--and you, its members--for the sake of our industry?
It’s natural that we’re seeing such a swirl of negative stories during these uncertain economic times, and it would be simplistic to dismiss them as out of hand. But these writers are mistaken in their implicit or explicit diminishment of the value of homeownership.
Like everything in life, what you get out of NAR is in direct proportion to what you put into it. With your vote, your action, and your investment, you help ensure that this organization can act effectively on your behalf.
