Patty Kelley graduates from NAR Leadership Academy
Patty Kelley, former president of the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors, recently graduated from the National Association of Realtors Leadership Academy. She was one of 27 Realtors to graduate and the only one from Nevada.
The commencement ceremonies were held during the 2010 Realtor midyear legislative meetings in Washington, D.C.
“Realtors bring value to homebuyers, sellers and investors, and the NAR Leadership Academy gives Realtors the skills they need to bring value to the association and the real estate industry as a whole,” said National Association of Realtors President Vicki Cox Golder, owner of Vicki L. Cox & Associates in Tucson, Ariz.
The NAR Leadership Academy is a nine-month, five-session training and development program structured around national Realtor meetings. Members like Kelley, who served leadership roles at the local and state level, but who have not yet been actively involved in national leadership positions at NAR, are encouraged to apply. The academy helps participants develop their leadership knowledge and abilities to eventually assume a national role.
Candidates complete an application that includes questions on issues and topics that impact the business of real estate, their civic involvement and leadership aspirations.
GLVAR was founded in 1947 and provides its nearly 12,500 local members with education, training and political representation. For more information, visit lasvegasrealtor.com.
