2011 was a huge year for WCAR. We moved into a new building, we conducted our first focus group concentrating on our association’s future, gave away thousands of dollars in scholarships, hosted two national speakers, and kicked-off a new social event, Tailgate Tuesdays. I have no doubt that 2012 will be an even bigger year for us as an association and for our members. The new Board of Directors and our staff have spent time surveying and speaking with members over the past several months and we hope that we can be a benefit to your business into the new year. WCAR is focused on helping you in your business in 2012 in several ways:
- Communication: We are working on better communication with our membership . In 2012 we will be rolling out a new website that will be more user-friendly both for our members and the general public. Make sure that you are receiving the monthly newsletter and Monday Mailings to keep up with all the happenings inour local markets.
- Education: In 2012 WCAR will again offer FREE classes for our members. Along with those offerings we will have Top Producer Panels, Workshop Sessions for newer agents (Free), Best Practices Sessions for your business and national speakers. Our Education Committee and staff have been busy in an effort to bring you greater value for your education experience.
- RPAC Participation: In 2012 our members will know exactly what RPAC is doing for them. RPAC is important, especially in these volatile and uncertain times. We need the power of one of the largest advocacy groups on Capitol Hill fighting for Realtors, by Realtors. Your new RPAC Committee is on a mission to keep you informed in 2012.
You can read more about the 2012 action plan set forth by our Board of Directors. We are looking forward to a productive and exciting year. I hope that you will take advantage of the many offering to help your business in 2012 and be a part of a larger voice for real estate in your local community. Thanks so much for your continued membership and support. We look forward to working with you in the year to come!
ear to come!
