Leadership 100 is offered online.

Leadership 200 and Leadership 300 are held at NAR's Leadership Summit, held in Chicago, Ill., in August. Associations can also host these courses locally or in an eWorkshop format; learn more.

What sets RLP apart from other leadership programs?

RLP prepares REALTORS® for association volunteerism. State and local association leadership programs teach REALTORS® the skills that will help them succeed as association and community leaders.

The RLP and state and local association leadership programs may be considered stepping stones to NAR’s Leadership Academy, which grooms state and local leaders for potential leadership roles at NAR.

The REALTORS® Excelling in Association Leadership (REAL) Course, an online course available at no cost through REALTOR® University, covers many of the same topics that are covered in the RLP. However, the REAL Course is self-paced, while the RLP is an interactive learning experience.
