Realtors® interested in expanding their leadership skills are encouraged to apply to the NAR Leadership Academy. The deadline to submit an application is Feb. 12, 2021.
Designed to inspire and mentor emerging leaders from the local and state level, the Leadership Academy allows future leaders to experience multiple facets of leadership and define their leadership style. They also learn the history, structure and inner workings of NAR leadership.
PAR President-Elect & BCAR member Chris Beadling is a graduate of the program. Chris noted, “One really amazing part of the program is the introduction you get to everything that NAR has to offer its members. These introductions aren't a video clip or a tri-fold brochure though; in the case of our class, the senior vice president of the department or the National Association of Realtors® then-President Elizabeth Mendenhall were in the room telling us about these amazing benefits and how they came to be. Better yet, they were eager to hear us tell them how they could be better... which we didn't feel reluctant to do.”
The NAR Leadership Academy program includes 12 sessions containing both interactive online and in-person experiences (four in-person OR virtual sessions and eight online sessions). Learn more about NAR Leadership Academy and apply online.
