Information on NYSAR/FIAIP relationship and activities
Italy – FIAIP
NYSAR has served as Ambassador Association to the Italian Federation of Real Estate Agents (FIAIP) in Italy for more than 20 years. The associations work closely together to help foster real estate transactions for those wishing to buy or sell in either country.
Trade missions are held every two years or so to build relationships and a greater understanding between real estate professionals in both countries. On these missions, educational sessions, networking events, and property tours are held to raise awareness of real estate market opportunities in both countries and to gain a better understanding of how real estate transactions are conducted in each country.
The next trade mission is scheduled for October 2020.

NAR Global Ambassador Role and Activities
Global Ambassadors are U.S.-based NAR members, appointed by the NAR President to serve as his or her liaison to real estate professionals in their assigned countries. Appointees are generally CIPS designees and, ideally, have some knowledge of the countries’ cultures and languages. Appointments are made each year prior to NAR’s Annual Convention and run concurrent to the NAR presidential term. The following outlines the responsibilities of the position. For the current list of Global Ambassadors visit NAR’s Global Alliances Network.
The National Association of REALTORS® Global Ambassadors is appointed to each group of countries annually by the NAR President. Global Ambassadors serve at the discretion of the President for a term of one year and may be re-appointed. Global Ambassadors work to help maintain NAR’s important relationships with foreign real estate associations.
For more information on the program, please review the Global Ambassador Handbook, which contains important information such as the detailed responsibilities of a Global Ambassador, a sample time commitment table, and the list of country groupings. If you are interested in applying for an appointment, please read the aforementioned Global Ambassador Handbook, then fill out the application form. Please contact NAR Global (link sends e-mail) for information regarding current opportunities.
NAR Global Coordinators
Global Coordinators are also appointed annually by the NAR President. There are five regions: 1) North America, Central America, and the Caribbean; 2) South America; 3) Asia/Pacific; 4) Western Europe; and 5) Central/Eastern Europe, Middle East, and Africa. Each Global Coordinator serves in one of these regions, and he/she oversees all Global Ambassadors and Ambassador Associations in the region. Global Ambassadors can expect to meet with their Global Coordinators at NAR meetings and should contact them with specific issues throughout the year.
NAR Ambassador Associations
The Ambassador Association program is loosely based on the international Sister-City programs: NAR appoints a “partner” state or local REALTOR® association to each of its partner countries. The Ambassador Association works closely with the Global Ambassador assigned to that country and NAR’s Global Coordinator for that part of the world. The program also gives members of the Ambassador Association the opportunity to expand their global business networks and get involved in international real estate activities at the local or state level.
