We all want a good deal. What could be better than belonging to a highly respected association of colleagues that encourages its members to have a voice in all its activities? We, the members, determine what we receive from NAR. Here's a partial list.
A major change in NAR's structure will ensure that the national dues you pay cover primarily those activities benefiting the membership at large. The new structure will also enable NAR to develop targeted products and services you can purchase to increase your edge in the marketplace.
To those of us consumed with the day-to-day demands of business, the legislative twists and turns in Washington, D.C., and the national association's part in them can seem irrelevant and confusing. Yet, what happens---or doesn't happen---in the nation's capital does have a big impact on us as real estate practitioners.
We're making greater communication with you a top priority. We intend to meet face-to-face with at least 10 percent of you this year. That's more than 70,000 members. We want to hear your concerns and suggestions about how the REALTOR® organization can help you succeed in this complex world.
Because REALTORS® represent a broad cross-section of the American public, what’s best for REALTORS® is often what’s best for the country at large. That’s certainly true with two battles the National Association of REALTORS® is waging: the drive for affordable health insurance and the campaign to keep big banks out of real estate.
