September is REALTOR® Safety Month. As you know, protecting yourself goes beyond vigilance in the field. You also need to be aware of the opportunities to improve your safety at the office and in the digital world.
NAR has worked hard to provide resources and tips on the topic of safety. A few quick links to safety hot topics are below:
- Data Privacy and Security
- How to Avoid Wire Fraud
- Safety Products, Apps, and Programs
- Videos on Safety
- EDUCATION: Free Safety Webinars
Here at your local association, member safety will always be a top priority. As of now, we have two safety-related dates in September you may find beneficial.
On Monday, September 23rd, 2019 from 9am – 1pm, we’ll have our first REALTOR® Concealed Weapon Training class. PLEASE view the details on our calendar regarding eligibility and requirements. This class will be instructed by Keith Hardesty, an honorably discharged US Air Force Veteran, former Atlanta City Police Officer/investigator, and retired Federal Supervisory Criminal Investigator (ATF) with 20 years of Law Enforcement Firearm Instructor’s experience.
Of course, safety is a year-round priority! On Monday, October 28th we have “Tech Management & Safety” from 1pm – 4pm at PRO. Presented by Craig Grant, the “Real Estate Tech Guru”, this class aims to keep you up-to-date with NAR, Federal, and State technology policies, copyright risks, email etiquitee, keeping your computer safe, and more.
