Leadership-Board Forum Wrap-up

No matter what size your association is we all deliver many of the same services—and some different ones. The Board Forum Wrap-Up allows AEs and their leadership to share and learn from each other. What a great learning opportunity for our associations and members to benefit from. See the lists below for a rundown of topics discussed at the Forums representing associations of every size.


  • It was an overall theme that some people just love small boards
  • Mergers
  • Keeping our voice at the table


  • 2nd Century Adventures such as REACH
  • Teams


  • Using Facebook live after Board of Directors meetings to give members a three-minute update
  • Radio shows
  • Podcasts
  • Encouraging members to achieve the C2EX Endorsement
  • Airbnb wants to partner with associations


  • The Homeless and what we can do to help
  • Foundations with giving
  • RPAC campaigns and giving is down in some areas
  • REALTOR® Emeritus Status requirement of members having to serve on a NAR Committee to obtain this

An inspiring thought was shared by 2020 NAR President Vince Malta to leaders stating: "Think beyond the one year." Many can benefit and learn from that simple process each year. Our mission is to lead the association together into the future.
