Unlicensed Assistant Duties—Updated Policy
The Board of Directors reviewed and approved the Licensing Committee’s recommendation to revise the Commission Policy on the duties of unlicensed assistants. The revised policy allows unlicensed assistants to communicate the information on the client view of a listing cut to consumers.

Now when a consumer calls a brokerage to ask for information about a particular property that they saw advertised, an unlicensed assistant/employee may recite the information contained on the client view of an MLS® listing cut. Previously, unlicensed assistants/employees were not allowed to respond to advertising questions from the public and would have had to direct these calls to a licensee.

CPE Course Announced for the 2017-2018 Licensing Cycle
At the last Liaison Committee meeting, the NSAR mandatory course, Advertising in the Digital Age, was suggested as possible NSREC mandatory course for next year's licensing cycle (July 2017–June 2018). The Committee, which is made up of board members from both the NSAR and the NSREC, felt that the course would give the NSAR and the NSREC an opportunity to collaborate to the benefit of the industry. The course was put forward to the Licensing Committee at their June 1st meeting along with a number of proposed revisions to make the course comply with requirements of an NSREC-approved mandatory.
