The National Association of REALTORS®, “The Voice for Real Estate,” is America’s largest trade association, representing 1 million members including NAR’s institutes, societies and councils, involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
Our membership is composed of residential and commercial REALTORS® who are brokers, salespeople, property managers, appraisers, counselors, and others engaged in all aspects of the real estate industry. Members belong to one or more of some 1,400 local associations/boards and 54 state and territory associations of REALTORS®. They are pledged to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.
The Alaska Association of REALTORS® is the largest trade organization in Alaska, representing 1700+ members who practice real estate. It is the state-level REALTOR® organization in Alaska. AAR hosts annual Leadership Training in Anchorage each January, organizes ‘Hill Visits’ to the Alaska legislature in the spring, and also offers an annual Convention which travels to different local associations each September. Regular communication by email and FaceBook keeps members up to date on educational, ethical, and professional opportunities across the state.
Since 1969, the REALTORS® Political Action Committee(RPAC) has promoted the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates across the United States. The purpose of RPAC is clear: voluntary contributions made by REALTORS® are used to help elect candidates who understand and support their interests. These are not members’ dues; this is money given freely by REALTORS® in recognition of the importance of the political process. The REALTORS® Political Action Committee and other political fundraising are the keys to protecting and promoting the real estate industry.
