Global Business Council
MISSION: YOUR REAL ESTATE RESOURCE IN A GLOBAL MARKET LOCALLY AND ABROAD.
MAAR Ambassador Program to Ireland
Think Sister-City – this NAR program links a foreign Cooperating Association with a U.S. state or local REALTOR® association. The Ambassador Association works closely with a President’s Liaison and Regional Coordinator to expand global business opportunities. MAAR’s cooperating association is Ireland’s Institute of Professional Auctioneers and Valuers (IPAV) http://www.ipav.ie/
In October, 2016, MAAR together with Ireland’s Institute of Professional Auctioneers and Valuers (IPAV) hosted a Trade Mission to Ireland and Northern Ireland. Trade Missions are international trips organized for the purpose of exploring international business opportunities, learning about a foreign market and building relationships. 2016 MAAR President Judy Shields expressed “I’m excited to bring a delegation to Ireland and meet with IPAV professionals to learn how Ireland’s real estate industry conducts business, share ideas, and develop business opportunities between the two associations.”
