About This Event

ARELLO’s Regulatory Investigations Seminar (ARIS) has become a premier national program for real estate regulatory investigators looking for initial training or to hone their skills and techniques. Many may not realize that ARIS training can also help administrators, legal counsel, and industry members learn about national trends impacting the real estate industry.

Criminals and fraudsters are constantly innovating, developing, and finding new and creative ways to scam consumers. ARIS brings together leading experts in the investigatory field, to dive into the latest methods and practices to uncover wrongdoing and prosecute the bad actors. The programing is designed to bring all facets of a regulatory enforcement program together to learn the latest tools and methods to achieve the common goal of eradicating criminal enterprises that harm customers.

This year’s ARIS will be held November 1-3, 2022, in Raleigh, North Carolina. The program includes something for everyone with a role in real estate enforcement, including sessions on social media and Internet investigations, probable cause determinations, report writing, best safety practices, and opportunities for networking and multiple roundtable information sharing sessions.
