On April 6, BCREA hosted its first Youth Leadership Network (YLN) event to support REALTOR® leadership development and encourage young leaders to get involved in organized real estate leadership opportunities. The event included an engaging presentation from Carla Wood of AllStrategy about how improving your networking skills can lead to success and was followed by a networking session to do just that. Feedback about the event was extremely positive with several attendees noting that the session, and connections made there, would help strengthen their business.
This was the first of four events that the YLN will be hosting. Throughout 2016, BCREA will be piloting the YLN with a goal of helping equip young REALTORS® to take on leadership in their businesses and communities, help develop their knowledge and interest in governance, and to give young REALTORS® a voice.
The next YLN event will be a day long session held on May 10 at Sun Peaks Resort as part of BCREA’s Leadership Conference. The event will include presentations on topics including leadership, governance and professional development, as well as opportunities to network with other REALTORS® and leadership from real estate boards across the province.
If you’re interested in participating in the YLN and sharing your insights with organized real estate, BCREA would like to hear from you! Please contact Corinne Caldwell, BCREA's Chief Financial Officer, at 604.677.9341 or [email protected].
