Founded in 1929, NAREE has more than 650 members nationwide. The association meets in different US cities three times per year.
In the Winter, NAREE members gather for a networking reception and hospitality suite during the National Association of Home Builders "International Builders Show."
In the Spring, NAREE members meet for the association's annual real estate journalism conference which includes "NAREE's Meet the Press," a one-on-one opportunity for freelance writers, columnists, and publicists to visit with up to a dozen of the nation's leading real estate journalists gathered under one roof for this mini press tour. NAREE conference planners put together morning panels of newsmakers and trend setters to discuss issues of the day and to answer reporter questions on breaking stories. Professional development sessions and/or area tours are scheduled for the afternoons. The association also presents awards to the winners of the annual journalism competition, the Bruss Book Competition and annual NAREE Bivins Fellowship fellows during the spring conference Awards Luncheon.
In the Fall, members gather for Fall Summit and Installation of Officers and Awards Dinner. The President's Award for Outstanding Service is presented. The Fall Summit is held as members gather at an industry conference such as the National Association of Realtors Convention or the Urban Land Institute Fall Meeting. NAREE strives to maintain a presence at other industry meetings as volunteer time and member interest dictate.
