AE volunteers not only shape the policies that affect their careers, but also develop valuable resources and policies to help all members and associations flourish.
Association executives (chief staff and staff specialists) are invited to volunteer to serve on committees related specifically to association issues or committees on member issues.
Volunteering for the Association Executive Committee
Every year, the Association Executives Committee (AEC) asks for AE volunteers to serve on important standing advisory boards as well as single-subject, limited-term work groups. The call to volunteer goes out in March for the following year. The call to serve on AEC work groups goes out in December for the following year. Go to the AE Committee page for a list of goals and rosters for the past AE Committee, advisory boards, and work groups.
The purpose of the AEC is to build proactive alliances to enhance and strengthen organizational relationships, explore and develop current and future strategic issues, advance the professionalism of association executives and their volunteer leaders, and provide a framework for implementing the initiatives of the AEC advisory boards, work groups, and forums.
Volunteers also earn credit towards their REALTOR® association Certified Executive (RCE) designation.
Volunteering for Other NAR Committees
Volunteer opportunities are detailed on the NAR Committee Structure pages. These pages give you a snapshot of each committee by presenting its purpose, composition, terms of service, and desired membership qualifications. All committees, advisory boards, and forums are listed in alphabetical order by full committee. The Committee Structure Book is also available to download.
Summary of AEC Programs, Products, and Services
The Summary of AEC Programs, Products, and Services page outlines resources available to AEs for association management, professional development, leadership development, and networking.
