In addition, the team recognized the hard work being done across the country in the global space by this group of councils.

This year, the NAR Global Achievement Program recognized 31 councils for providing tools and resources and networking and outreach opportunities for their members and the communities they serve. They are always excited to acknowledge all their hard work and can’t wait to see what 2022 will bring to this space!
