NAREC’s History

NAREC was founded in 1978 as the National Association of Real Estate Companies (NAREC) by a dedicated group of financial executives who wanted to create a forum to discuss existing and proposed accounting standards and their effects on the real estate industry.  At this time there were virtually no other organized groups focused on this practice.

NAREC’s first Annual Conference was held in Key Largo, Florida in 1979 with approximately 40 people in attendance. As the years have passed NAREC’s membership, scope of focus and activities has grown. PeerSpan has become the leading networking organization for financial professionals in the real estate industry with a focus on financial management, technology, and tax, and financial accounting standards.
