The Leadership Academy aims to provide tools and a knowledge-based foundation to motivate and empower REALTORS® for future leadership positions. Through a series of 3-4 hour sessions, electives, and team building activities, participants gain:
- Knowledge-based foundation for personal leadership growth.
- Enhanced professionalism and industry knowledge.
- Greater awareness of all three levels of the Association (local, state, and national)
Upon reviewing of all applications, the Leadership Development Committee will make a recommendation to Board of Directors, who makes the final determination regarding participants.
In reviewing applications, the Leadership Development Committee weighs and considers:
- Broker Recommendation Letter (must accompany the application)
- Minimum two (2) years as a REALTOR® member in good standing
- Interest in serving in a volunteer leadership role
- Availability of time to participate fully in the program
- Potential for leadership demonstrated through involvement in community groups and the REALTOR® association
To allow meaningful networking and learning, consideration is given to the overall make-up of the class to ensure a worthy and diverse group of participants. To maximize the experience for all participants, the class size will be limited to no more than fifteen (15) participants. When multiple applicants are affiliated with the same office, we will defer to the Managing Broker for input.
