In the Winter, NAREE members gather for a Design Trends Snapshot and Networking Reception during the National Association of Home Builders "International Builders Show."
In the late Spring/early Summer, members meet for NAREE's Annual Spring Conference.

Professional development sessions and/or area tours are also scheduled. NAREE's Annual Real Estate Journalism Conference includes "NAREE's Meet the Press," a one-on-one opportunity for freelance writers, columnists, and publicists to take part in a mini press tour -- visiting with up to a dozen of the nation's leading real estate journalists gathered under one roof. The association also presents awards to the winners of the annual journalism competition and the Bruss Book Competition.
