PLATINUM INSTITUTE SPONSOR
Special thanks to Farmers National Company for their continued support of excellence in land knowledge and professional connections as we move into 2014! They will continue to be a Platinum Sponsor in 2014 and are a 2014 Land Conference Partner.
Goal Statement: The Accredited Land Consultant Designation (ALC) is an indication of a professional who is the most accomplished, the most experienced, and the most knowledgeable land expert. Staying current in trends and information is inherent in being the best in the business. The ALC Advanced program is designed to offer opportunities to ALCs to stay current in the area of land to assist clients through up-to-date knowledge and through stewardship in the National organization of the REALTORS® Land Institute.
Program: ALC designees have the option to participate in 30 hours of professional development within a two-year period starting with the year 2013. If the requirements are fulfilled and the appropriate paperwork is submitted to National when due, the participant would become an ALC Advanced for two-year period. The following counts toward these required hours. All of the below must be from options available through the Institute:
Administration: ALCs will submit their thirty hours with proof of attendance and/or completion of the activities once a year to the Institute. These will be collected between January 2-January 10 on the year following the due date (i.e. For 2014, the records would need to be sent to National for credit between January 2-January 10 of 2015). All completed should be submitted to Karen Calarco, Manager of Operations and Member Records via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax 312.329.8633.
Starting for those applying in January 2015, the Advanced, if earned, is in place for two years and, then, the ALC must reapply fulfilling requirements taken during the two years prior to the application date. If an ALC Advanced designee desires to keep that designation tier, he/she must submit proof of having fulfilled the requirements every two years (i.e. If an ALC Advanced, submits the fulfilled requirements in January 2015, he/she would need to reapply in January of 2017 with professional development taking place in 2015 and 2016).
