Educators Conference Review
The 2023 Spring Educators Conference – NCREC Trek, was held last month before a sold out crowd of over 300 instructors. Thank you to all who attended, for dedicating yourself to learning, improving and increasing the success of your students. Educators learned about licensing and education stats, benefits of course audits and SMART learning objectives, optimizing zoom waiting rooms and gamification through Flippity, the importance of following the syllabus and how to engage the unengaged. Congratulations to Stephanie Walker, this year’s recipient of the Larry A. Outlaw Excellence in Education Award. If you were unable to attend and need education credit, there is a brand new instructor development workshop (IDW) being released this month. Visit the Education tab on our website for more details. If you are a licensed instructor and have education questions or concerns, join us at our next Educators Town Hall Meeting 5/3/23 at 3pm.
Rental Fraud Concerns
Similar to our recent warnings about increases in wire fraud, seller fraud and deed fraud, consumers and brokers should also be aware of rental scams. Many rental fraud scams take place online or through social media targeting would-be renters, asking them to send money upfront for deposits before even viewing the property, and then disappearing once the money has been sent. View this recent consumer article on our website to learn how to spot red flags and avoid becoming a victim. If you are already a victim of a rental fraud scam you should contact the Attorney General’s office to report the scam, as well as local law enforcement.
