Want to take a deep dive into the association and how all its pieces fit? Interested in enhancing your personal leadership skills? Do you see yourself as one day serving as a REALTOR® leader?

The KAAR Board of Directors is excited to announce LeadershipKAAR 2023! Through a series of day-long sessions held over five-months, the leadership program features opportunities to learn from renowned speakers from across the country. The curriculum allows participants to learn about themselves and their personal leadership capabilities, how to hone and apply their specific leadership qualities, and what is expected as a leader in the REALTOR® organization.

Program participants will gain enhanced professionalism, and an in-depth knowledge of the REALTOR® Association at the local, state, and national levels. Many previous participants have found the program’s knowledge-based foundation to be the ideal stepping stone to serve on association committees and the Board of Directors.

LeadershipKAAR is designed for participants of all ages and real estate industry experience with varying degrees of leadership and association service. To allow for best engagement with the instructors and fellow participants, class size is limited to no more than twelve KAAR primary members.
