NAR 360: Showtime

Rock Concert, Gospel Hour, Magic Show: Welcome to NAR 360. There are about 10,000 attendees at this conference and no one wants to miss the show. There are no other sessions or committee meetings scheduled so as to avoid any conflict with this event. It’s standing room only, with a huge stage and jumbotron monitors. One of the speakers asks those in the audience who have invested at least $3,000 in RPAC this year to rise and half the room stood up. This audience is definitely the devoted and the committed. And the NAR Leadership did not disappoint, filling the hour with full-circle (hence the 360 degrees) content. This was the 30,000 foot view: the rest of this week is filling in the details. Tomorrow everyone heads to Capitol Hill all pumped up from the 360 to meet with the senators and representatives.
