As director of member development for the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), Kasey Stewart is responsible for building, launching and growing the association’s education programs, including Commitment to Excellence (C2EX), the Center for REALTOR® Financial Wellness, and the GRI and Appraisal designations. Stewart is proud of working with REALTORS® and NAR staff in 2019 to grow C2EX, watching it exceed all participation goals, and seeing NAR’s members adopt non-traditional learning methods.
C2EX empowers REALTORS® so they can demonstrate their professionalism and commitment to adhering to the highest standards when conducting business. The tool allows REALTORS® to assess their expertise in several areas of professionalism. It has become one of NAR’s fastest-growing programs, with over 27,000 REALTORS® actively participating. C2EX also won the Learning! 100 Award from eLearning Media Group, which recognizes global public- and private-sector organizations that provide best-in-class learning and development programs.
“I’m incredibly proud to work with NAR volunteer leaders and staff on C2EX. It truly takes a village to launch and grow a program of this magnitude,” Stewart says. “It’s a joy to witness REALTORS® all across the country begin their C2EX journey, doing their part to raise the level of professionalism in the industry.”
Stewart has held several leadership positions at NAR over the past decade. She earned a bachelor’s degree in public relations from Marshall University and a master’s in integrated marketing and communications from West Virginia University.
