NAR Announces 2022 Leadership Academy Class

Two of the 20 Realtors chosen for the 10-month program that begins in Jan. 2022 are from Florida: Carlos Alleyne, Boca Raton, and Ines Hegedus-Garcia, Miami Shores.

CHICAGO – The National Association of Realtors® has announced its 2022 Leadership Academy class. Two members of the class are from Florida: Carlos Alleyne and Ines Hegedus-Garcia. A total of 20 Realtors® are participating in the 10-month program, which will prepare emerging state and local volunteers for future leadership positions at NAR.

“NAR’s Leadership Academy allows our volunteer leaders to develop the skills and gain the experiences they’ll need as they represent Realtors and work to secure a better future for American real estate,” said 2022 NAR President Leslie Rouda Smith. “This Academy helps us solidify NAR's successful and long-standing volunteer leadership structure, and it prepares our next generation of leaders to make positive, lasting changes to the industry we love.”

The twenty Realtors selected, who will join a nationwide community of leaders with influence throughout the industry, will participate in both virtual and in-person educational experiences as part of the Academy. Class participants will learn the inner workings of NAR and gain key insights that will prepare them to serve in prominent committee roles and leadership positions at every level of the association.

The program begins January 2022 and culminates at NAR’s 2022 Realtors Conference and Expo in Orlando, Fla., that November.
