THE ACADEMY FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION

The Academy for Continuing Education (ACE) presented its fall session to
a large audience made up of many of New York City’s top brokers, who attending the 22.5-hour continuing education program, as required by the New York state for license renewal.

The course was held at the Hotel Delmonico, 59th Street and Park Avenue, on three consecutive Wednesdays in October. Real estate salespersons and brokers licensed for less than 15 consecutive years are required by the Department of State, division of licensing services, to complete a continuing education program every two years in order to retain their licenses.

ACE president Esther Muller says, “What makes the Academy’s program
so popular is that it differs from others by the scope and diversity of our guest speakers. We bring our students the curriculum, as mandated by the state, but it’s presented by a star-studded line-up of inspirational and informative lecturers, who are leaders in the real estate industry.”

In addition to Alan Rogers, chief executive officer of Insignia/Douglas Elliman, real estate writer Lois Weiss, and Barbara Corcoran, the fall program included author Neil Binder, principal and co-founder of the Bellmarc Companies; Leonard Bayer, president of Goodstein Realty; Barbara Fox, chairman of Fox Residential; David J. Knight, president, D.J. Knight and
Faith Hope Consolo, vice chairman, Garrick Aug Worldwide.
