GAR Update Regarding COVID-19

In response to the growing public health concern regarding the COVID-19 virus, Georgia REALTORS® is taking the precautionary step to postpone all planned events, utilize Zoom conferencing for all scheduled committee meetings, and suspend GAR related travel for all staff and volunteers through Monday, April 13, 2020.
    Effective March 13, GAR will not be conducting in-person meetings and will conduct all meetings via Zoom video/conference call. GAR will continue to review this policy weekly as new information becomes available. However, it is GAR’s expectation that the policy will remain in effect through Monday, April 13, 2020.
    This decision is based on the announcement from health officials that multiple cases of the virus have been confirmed in Georgia and out of an abundance of caution for the safety and well-being of our REALTOR® community.
    GAR is postponing the following events and will begin the process of rescheduling for a future date:

  • Georgia Instructor Training, March 17
  • Century Summit, March 25-26
    This decision follows similar decisions from NAR and other organizations around the country. Updates will be posted on
    If you are currently registered for an event during this period, you will receive additional information as it is available.
    We all hope that this risk will pass in the near future. This decision is intended to ensure we do not inadvertently expose our employees and volunteers nor contribute to the spread of the virus. We know that restricting in-person meeting attendance is not going to insulate us from COVID-19 but by having this policy in place we are doing our best to avoid contributing to its spread and mitigating the risk to our members and staff.
    We appreciate your understanding and support and we will continue to provide updates as things evolve. For additional information please review the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website and NAR’s Guidance for REALTORS®.
