Ambassador Association

For NAR Ambassador Program, the international Sister-City programs, NAR appoints “partner” state and local REALTOR® associations to each of the foreign cooperating associations. The Ambassador Association works closely with President’s Liaison assigned to that country and NAR’s Regional Coordinator for that part of the world. The program also gives members of the Ambassador Association the opportunity to expand their global business networks and get involved in international real estate activities at the local or state level. Where applicable, the Ambassador Association complements the appropriate “Country Work Groups,” a program designed to allow CIPS Network members from varied geographical locations to focus on doing business in a specific country.
