Due to recent restrictions and recommendations implemented by the federal and Washington, D.C. governments, the National Association of REALTORS® announced Wednesday that it will deliver previously-planned programming and committee meetings virtually.

With the Centers for Disease Control issuing guidance limiting discretionary travel and large gatherings, and the city of Washington, D.C. instituting a state of emergency to limit the spread of COVID-19, the 2020 REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo will no longer be held in person from May 11-16 in Washington, D.C.

NAR will provide virtual options to ensure the full governance of its organization can continue while designing a true virtual meeting and convention in place of the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings and Trade Expo. NAR also announced Wednesday that it will use the time from now until July 1 as a reset to implement new virtual opportunities for member participation within all of its meetings and events.

The virtual experience will include, among other components:

  • Committee Meetings
  • Key Sessions
  • Elections
