Throughout the year, DCAR hosts a variety of events that offer sponsorship opportunities. From networking events to installations to DCAR member spotlight videos, there are plenty of chances to get involved.
To sponsor a DCAR event, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Open House – This is a unique opportunity for any interested sponsors: DCAR is planning a grand opening of its new DC office in early 2018! Details on the new office, including pictures of the progress, directions to get to the office, and parking information, can be found here. This is a fantastic sponsorship opportunity that won’t come around again — after all, this is the first property purchase in DCAR’s 105-year history. Don’t miss your chance to get your brand in front of DC real estate’s elite.
DCAR Installation – Each December, DCAR officially installs its volunteer leadership team for the upcoming year. The ceremony is a big event that is always well-attended and features some of the highest-ranking members of the Association. There are few better opportunities to get your brand in front of some the District’s most powerful REALTORS® than the annual DCAR Installation. Stay tuned for information on the 2018 Installation. Pictures of 2016 Installation here.
Speaker Series – DCAR hosts 6-10 Speaker Series events per year, most of which are available for sponsorships. In 2017, we featured DC government leaders such as DC Council Chair Phil Mendelson, NAR leaders such as Vice President Scott Reiter, DHCD Director Polly Donaldson, and other leaders in government and the real estate industry. Check out pictures of Councilmember Jack Evans’ appearance in 2016 here.
Networking Events – Throughout the course of the year, DCAR hosts a variety of networking events. Some of the most popular of these events are our happy hours, which are held intermittently around the city. We held a very successful happy hour at Lebanese Taverna in Woodley Park this past May during the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo (see pictures here).
Member Spotlight Videos – One of the new features we’re working on here at DCAR is a Member Spotlight video series, where we aim to help you get to know some of our members a little better. The videos, each several minutes in length, are lighthearted and cover a few different subjects, such as the member’s background, time in DC, introduction to real estate and various experiences. This series will be displayed here.
Friday Roundup – Each Friday, DCAR sends a roundup of the week in DCAR and DC real estate. This includes any DCAR-specific updates, a look at proposed, pending, and passed legislation, some of the biggest real estate stories around DC, and more. These emails go out to the entire membership of nearly 3,000 REALTORS®, and it’s an excellent way to make sure your brand is in front of the leaders in DC real estate.
