The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® recently expanded its communication team by hiring two new social media experts: Heather Elias as director of social business practice and Nobu Hata as director of digital engagement.
More than 18,000 members and guests are expected to attend the REALTORS® Conference & Expo in sunny Orlando, Fla., November 9–12. The education and motivational offerings at the gathering are designed to help REALTORS® make the most of the current market and gain an edge over the competition. There’s also plenty of programming just for AEs, including these highlights.
From Nov. 9 through Nov. 12, 2012, the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®’ conference live Web site (REALTOR.org/ConferenceLive) will offer news, social networking buzz, attendee commentary, speaker interviews, and trade show footage for REALTOR® Conference & Expo attendees and those who are unable to attend the Orlando gathering.
The Mentor Program, launching soon, will allow AEs to connect with other, more seasoned AEs for guidance, advice, and support—whether they are new to the REALTOR® association management business or are simply experiencing challenges.
The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®’ new Signature Series Speakers Bureau offers REALTOR® associations and commercial overlay boards access to expert speakers and trainers who have reduced their fees.
The October revamp of REALTOR.org enables members and AEs to customize the news they see on the home page by their role in real estate, such as association executive, as well as their particular interests, such as technology or political advocacy.
