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 attended the 22½ hour continuing education program, as required by New York State for license renewal, announces Esther Muller, ACE president.

The course was held at the Hotel Delmonico, 59th Street and Park Avenue. 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 and conduct business in New York State.
