Didn't think it would be valueable. Also, paying for a Zoom meeting is not for me.

I wasn't interested Wanda plus we had a lot going on at that time. Let's just say that wasn't on my 'list'.

I haven't found "value" in anything NAR has to offer in many, many years.

I like going to conventions for the networking and interaction with other agents and the various committee sessions.  I skipped the virtual NAR one this year. I really didn't feel like paying a fee to sit in my own home listening in on some presentations that may or may not have been of value to me. However, I did attend a couple sessions during the Mid-winter meetings (normally in DC) earlier this year.

Wanda,

I have no opinion, as I did not attend!  Did you?  I am not crazy about virtual anything except when we are sharing screens and designing brands and web sites with our respective team members...Happy Thursday!  A

     I get the most value from NAR and Florida Realtors Conventions in face to face meetings, and at the Trade Show.   Since "Virtual" offers neither of either, I took a pass.

I can't recall ever being interested in attending the state or national conventions, in person or virtual.  This year (and to an extent last year) they all seemed more focused on the socio-political buzzwords of the day and very low on real estate related topics.

There are lots of things out there that may be of value. I don't have time or money to spend on all of them.

That would be a. big. fat. NO! 

I do not find value in the brick and mortar NAR conferences.

I did not connect. I attended one NAR "real" conference and was very disappointed. Did not feel I needed to repeat that experience virtually.

No I did not attend and was not willing to pay for Virtual meetings. Can't say I heard any feedback either.

I have not even attended one in person, so I doubt I would find value from one that is virtual.  I do wish NAR would be interested in supporting those that pay their dues rather than pushing their own agendas.  I have never felt any benefits from being a member of NAR.

I attended a NAR convention only once. I don't find value in anything that's organized by NAR.

No, but I did have a really fun conversation with one of our association officers about seceding from NAR. I also believe that some point I have stayed at a Holiday Inn. 😂🤣😂🤣
