In less than a week it will be NARdiGras time in New Orleans! REALTORS® from Illinois and around the country will converge on the Crescent City for the National Association of REALTORS® 2010 Conference and Expo, Nov. 5-8. NAR committee and governance meetings will be held Nov. 3-8.

So just what is in store for you at NARdiGras 2010? How about an extensive array of nationally-recognized industry speakers, inspiring and insightful sessions and a number of continuing education offerings. You’ll also have the chance to attend the real estate industry’s largest trade show and find countless opportunities to network with industry leaders from around the country.

NARdiGras isn’t all business, though. A group of 31 Illinois REALTORS® will be among those pushing up their sleeves and giving back to New Orleans by volunteering their time and skills with the REALTORS® Volunteer Build Days at the start of the week. The Habitat for Humanity build is part of an effort to rebuild and restore homes for families in the city’s Seventh Ward.

Can’t make it to NARdiGras? You can still keep up on all of the action by tuning in to Conference Live, NAR’s daily updates and event coverage, beginning Nov. 5.
