Second Century Initiatives
NAR's priorities as the association begins its second century are no less ambitious than those of the founders a century ago. The association's "Second Century Initiatives" include the following:
REALTORS Property ResourceTM (RPR) (formerly National Library/Archive, Gateway, The Real Estate Channel)
This initiative, based on the collaborative efforts of REALTORS® and the real estate community (including MLSs), provides access to a national database of real property information and gives real estate professionals the best access to real property information needed to serve their clients and customers.
