REALTORS�� Land Institute Announces Military Transition Program (MTP)
The REALTORS�� Land Institute
An affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS��
New Program Provides Quality Land Education to Military Service Members

November 13, 2013 (Chicago, IL) –The REALTORS�� Land Institute announced its commitment to support veterans’ employment opportunities with a new Military Transition Program (MTP), created to help military build a career in the real estate land business. All members of United States Armed Forces that have served on active duty since 2000 are eligible.
The 2014 Institute National President George Clift, ALC, remarked, “The Institute is honored to give back to those who protect our land. Our military service members possess leadership qualities, dedication, and a commitment to success that is valuable among land professionals. By joining the Military Transition Program, they will be connected to prestigious Accredited Land Consultants (ALCs) nationwide as they begin their education and business as a land expert.”

The MTP is designed to assist military to jumpstart their careers as real estate land professionals. Through this program, the Institute will waive fees for one year of membership, a LAND 101 course, and one elective LANDU course, valued at over $1500. Course hours accumulated will contribute to the requirements of the ALC designation—an indication of the most accomplished, experienced, and high performing land sales experts.

With the one year membership in the Institute, the program offers access to a national network of land REALTORS��, legislative advocacy and a voice in Washington through the National Association of REALTORS��, the 2014 National Land Conference, educational opportunities through the LANDU curriculum, the opportunity to earn the ALC designation, and access to exclusive property listing services, resources, social networking sites and publications. Access the application online.
