National Real Estate Ethics Day® Mission
To instill the highest levels of personal integrity, professional expertise, sound judgment, and discretion to all REALTORS® around the world. #NationalEthicsDay
Why Your Members Still Need National Real Estate Ethics Day®
Now I know the “NAR Code of Ethics Requirement” changed and you don’t have to do epics quite so often now. But our members actually need it and frankly the more I do good training the better REALTOR® I am. As we’ve done in the past this is a fundraiser for the REALTORS® Relief Foundation. A personal goal is to get to a hundred thousand dollars raised to help our communities in times of need while we make ethics training fun and relatable to every member so that the public will understand what makes a professional REALTOR® different.
What we’re gonna do is go through not just one or two or four of our articles. We’re going to go through all 17 and as we talk about case studies and what’s happened with actual REALTORS® and the actual public. Including a very robust conversation in our Facebook group which is monitored by other Code of Ethics instructors so that we can make one another stronger. You’re members are gonna walk away from this class with a better understanding of how they can put the Code of Ethics to work in their day-to-day business to help their community understand the value of a professional REALTOR® and how they are different than their competitors. I’m going to give them tools to use in their listing presentation and the strength to go forward in their community providing a different level of real estate service.
Please get signed up today! I promise you don’t want to miss out on all the fun and frankly nothing would make this woman happier than all of our 50 states and territories doing this training at the same time so the public will see #NationalEthicsDay trending and understand exactly that that’s Who REALTORS® Are!
Code of Ethics Training Requirement Now Every Three Years
At its Nov. 11, 2019 meeting, NAR’s Board of Directors approved a change to NAR’s Code of Ethics training requirement.
Since 2001, REALTORS® have been required to take Code of Ethics training to retain their membership. Originally, the training was required every four years, but in 2017, NAR changed the requirement to every two years. A presidential advisory group (PAG), appointed in 2019, made several recommendations to the NAR Leadership Team. One of its recommendations was to extend the requirement to every three years in order to give members more time to fit it into their continuing education schedule and to give local associations adequate time between cycles to administer the program.
- The current Cycle 6 deadline is extended from Dec. 31, 2020, to Dec. 31, 2021.
- The next cycle (Cycle 7) will begin Jan. 1, 2022, and end Dec. 31, 2024.
Separately, the Leadership Team approved several recommendations of the PAG that didn’t require a board vote including the learning objectives. The revised learning objectives for Code of Ethics courses focus on professional conduct, courtesies, business etiquette, and real-life scenarios.
The National Real Estate Ethics Day® Program was designed by Leigh Brown along with the The National Real Estate Ethics Day® Advisory Board and Ethics Panel to meet these learning objectives and minimum criteria established by NAR for the “NAR Code of Ethics Requirement”.
By attending National Real Estate Ethics Day® 2020, your members can get their triennial COE requirement taken care of AND give back to our local communities at the same time as a portion of the proceeds go to the NAR REALTORS® Relief Foundation!
"Born out of my passion for the REALTORS® Relief Foundation, this National Real Estate Ethics Day® fundraising event is going to knock the ball out of the park! I wholeheartedly believe that the Code of Ethics should be incorporated into your business every day and this class is the first step. My classes are never dull and never boring, so let’s talk professionalism and ethics! And if I can host this national event, all while benefiting the amazing REALTORS® Relief Foundation, then I consider that a win-win!"
