Hasbrouck Heights, NJ – This past June, the Eastern Bergen County Board of REALTORS (EBCBOR) participated in the National Association of REALTORS’ (NAR) Communications Directors Institute 2 day conference which took place in Chicago, IL.

Over 170 Communications Directors/staff members from across the country traveled to NAR’s  home to learn, network and share different tools, strategies and approaches they have taken to improve the overall engagement within each association.

The Communication Directors Institute provided REALTOR® organization communication directors information, skills building and resources to help enhance member and consumer communications. The networking and learning opportunities also aimed to strengthen relationships between the national, state and local association communicators.

NAR’s CEO, Dale Stinton made a video appearance during the conference where he commended all attendees for their efforts and emphasized the importance of communicators to the industry and the immediacy and urgency of sharing data from the national level to the local level. He stated, “As communicators we never forget who we work for. Our goal is to ensure that realtors stay at the center of the transaction. Homeownership and real estate investments are the essentials of the American story.” 

Present at the conference, EBCBOR’s Communications coordinator said “ I am so fortunate to be able to be a part of such an educational conference. I think it’s great to see the importance and emphasis NAR puts on ensuring that REALTORS are getting the all the tools required to succeed through special education and preparation for the staff working on the back end at each association. Additionally, it was especially rewarding to see the comradery among the diverse group of attendees; it was a breath of fresh air to see firsthand that everyone in the conference shares the same goal and passion, and that was as NAR’s CEO Dale Stinton mentioned in his speech to ensure that we as communicators are reaching both spectrum, realtors and consumers alike in an effective manner.” 

EBCBOR, chartered in 1923, has served Realtors and consumers in Bergen and Hudson counties for more than 90 years. A not-for-profit trade organization, representing over 3,800 Realtor members, EBCBOR is dedicated to enhancing the success of its membership by providing them with political advocacy, community outreach and educational opportunities.
