2017 Regional AE Conference!

Welcome to Collaboration, the 2017 Regional AE Conference!

As Chair of the North Carolina Association of REALTORS® AE Committee, I would like to welcome our colleagues from Georgia and the surrounding region to what promises to be an outstanding opportunity to learn more about our unique and challenging responsibility to lead our respective associations.

This year’s conference features RPAC training for those new to their jobs as AEs, as well as our more seasoned veterans, and the latest news and developments impacting the management of our Multiple Listing Services. We will kickoff the conference with Morris Morrison who delivers a powerful message about transitions and transformations. NAR’s Chris DeRosa will be on hand to provide the latest information on NRDS, and a session on Core Standards is available.  Raleigh AE Tessa Hultz will conduct a “boot camp” for new AEs, and Tyler Helms and Nobu Hata will provide ideas on how to engage your members through the use of video.  Lesley Walker (NAR) will provide a legal update and information on how we can avoid legal risk.  Bob Harris will be leading general sessions to give us the information we need to execute good governance and work in a strategic direction.

These are just a few of the opportunities that await you at this year’s Regional AE Conference.

The AEs and staff of the GAR and NC REALTORS® have put together an outstanding program.  However, I have found that some of the most beneficial time I spend at this event occurs during informal conversations/discussions with my colleagues—in the hotel hallways, during meals, between sessions, and at other times when we have a chance to exchange information and strategies.  Each AE brings a different perspective and approach to his/her profession. 

And that is why we need you to bring your own unique experiences and strategies to this year’s conference.  After all—this a Collaboration!

I look forward to seeing all of you in Charlotte.


Chris Rhodes, AE
