I am excited to announce that Northern Michigan now has a chapter of Women's Council of Realtors. We have been working diligently since July to form our chapter. Currently, we have 25 Realtor members and 10 Affiliate members. For those of you who may not be familiar with WCR, it is a fabulous organization for both women and men.
Nationally, WCR has over 16,000 members. WCR is not only a wonderful networking organziation but they are founded on the basic principals of helping its membership grow their business through leadership training as well as referrals from other members.
The mission of the organization is to build and sustain a strong sense of professional community, create business opportunities, provide educational content relevant to today's real estate professional, create opportunities to try new skills in a supportive environment.
If you do not have a chapter in your area, any Realtor can start a WCR Local Chapter by following the guidelines set forth by WCR. Everything that you need to know about WCR can be found on their web site www.wcr.org.
The Northern Michigan Chapter is hosting an event on October 6, 2009. In conjunction with our local Board of Realtors, we are bringing National Speaker, Andrew Wooten to our community. Andrew speaks Nationally on Safety and Identity Theft. We are lucky enough to have him here in Northern Michigan for three speaking engagements on the 6th of October. He will be in Empire at Century 21 Sleeping Bear Realty from 9:00 am - 10:30 am, Traverse Area Association of Realtors from 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm, and at the Kalkasks Kaliseum from 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm.
