The Newest TCG Consumer Outreach & Advocacy Content Library: FAQ

TCG COACL

How does the consumer outreach-advocacy content library subscription work?

Easy. Annual subscriptions are purchased for as little as 1 or as many 16 Content Sets, based upon your Association’s own strategic plan NAR Core Standards Consumer Outreach and Advocacy compliance (the Core Standards require a minimum of 4 consumer outreach actions per year, as well as advocacy). Each quarter, or as often as needed, your designated Association representative logs in to the TCG Consumer-Advocacy Content Library, selects the topic(s)-Content Set(s) your Association wishes to use, completes the Customization Options on the Content Order form and downloads your approved Consumer Outreach-Advocacy content.

How can TCG consumer outreach-advocacy content be customized for my state or local association?

Consumer Outreach-Advocacy Content Sets are designed to allow flexibility for small, medium, large and mega Association needs and budgets.  To that end,. Consumer Outreach-Advocacy Content Sets can be used “off the shelf” or, if your Association desires,  TCG edits in your Association’s own custom elements, including your Association’s choice of some or all of the following Customization Options:
