State elections are held each year at the state convention held during June of each year. The state convention is used to address specific statewide housing and real estate matters, address training needs among members and provide a networking forum in which members from across the state can share experiences, knowledge and friendship. The membership represents a "full life cycle" concept for consumers seeking direction and assistance in the housing industry.
Consumers may contact the nearest local chapter for real estate and housing assistance to purchase, sell or refinance single family, multi family, rental property, vacation property or obtain information on how to develop communities within the state. Once connected with a local chapter, the requests for other services needed for the full life cycle of the request, may be referred to other professionals in that local area, or to partners who support the vision and mission of NAREB and TAREB.
Professionals who are interested in membership should consider the closest local chapter to your location and contact that chapter for additional information. Should you find that there is not a location near you, this is a great opportunity to work with our Regional Office and state Board to determine the feasibility of establishing a chapter in your local area. Contact the state President for additional information.
