September is REALTOR Safety Month
As a REALTOR, being safe is an important part of the job! Join NAR for two free REALTORĀ® Safety webinars on Sept. 20 and 27 at 2pm Eastern time.  In these sessions, you will learn how to minimize risks in your business interactions. Visit the REALTORĀ® Safety webpage for additional resources and tools to share.  
How We Can Help Hurricane Victims

The GLAR Board of Directors has approved a $5000 donation to the REALTOR Relief Foundation. NAR is calling on the REALTOR family to donate funds to the foundation to support storm victims in Texas and other affected areas, and we are asking you to join us in this effort with your personal donation to the REALTOR Relief Foundation.

You can do so in less than one minute using your credit card on the secure online form below.  These support efforts both reflect and depend on the generosity of REALTORS.  RRF is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, with administrative costs covered by the National Association of REALTORSĀ®. That means 100 percent of all donations go directly to victims.
