2014-2015 COMMITTEE GOALS
Committee/Subcommittee/Forum Name: Association Executives Institute Advisory Board
Chair: Carol Seal, RCE/Rob Philipp, CA, RI
Vice Chair: Theresa Hatton, RCE, CAE
Liaison: Sharon Keating, ABR, CRS, GRI, SRES
Work with NAR staff, CREA staff, and other AE subject matter experts to plan the curriculum for the 2015 AE Institute, scheduled for March 13-16, 2015, in Vancouver, British Columbia.
AEs are better prepared to address the issues that have an impact on their members' business. The course, speaker, and overall program rating for the 2015 Institute are 4.0 or above (on a 5.0 scale, with 5.0 being the highest).
Structure programming to allow for presentations on emerging strategic issues that are relevant to all levels of the organization.
Open timeslots in the AE Institute curriculum will allow attendees to be briefed on the most up-to-date strategic issues on the industry horizon, so they return to their associations (and to their association leadership) with the latest information on NAR and CREA initiatives.
Incorporate more programs on virtual programming, communications, business strategy and multiple listing services into the 2015 curriculum.
Institute attendees will leave the Institute with a general understanding of the following: how to embrace some of the new media flooding all facets of business and industry; how to allocate resources to implement plans, projects, and programs; and how to manage their associations as the MLS continues to evolve.
Ensure the Institute satisfies the learning needs of seasoned AEs as well as those who are new to the business, and those of U.S. AEs and Canadian AEs.
Seasoned AEs who have felt less a part of Institute over the past few years now feel a renewed energy and sense of belonging; newer AEs are given the proper instruction they need to start managing their associations with greater confidence. AEs from both countries leave the Institute having gained more knowledge than prior to attending.
Impact on other committees:
The AE Institute Advisory Board may look to NAR's Strategic Planning Committee to provide an update on emerging issues the advisory board should address in the 2015 AE Institute curriculum.
Anticipated action by Executive Committee or Board of Directors:
