Explore your future… Enhance your business… Enrich your life! Applications are now open for the 2019 Virginia Peninsula Association of Realtors Leadership, Excellence and Development Program (VPAR LEAD).
As a part of the 2016-2019 VPAR Strategic Plan, Goal 5 is “Retention/Engagement of Membership”. This resulted in the development of a VPAR leadership program to be implemented in 2019. The 2019 VPAR LEAD is a distinguished program designed for emerging and established REALTOR leaders who are committed to leadership and excellence in their careers and communities. This program was designed based on the following questions and reasons:
- Why should we have a VPAR Leadership Program? To have a pool of solid leaders for future association leadership roles, to build confidence in these individuals as leaders, to make our association stronger, to keep our association “fresh” and growing, and to elevate the REALTOR brand in our communities.
- Who should be a participant in the VPAR Leadership Program? Rising/emerging leaders in our offices, committees and communities.
- What are some of the topics of training, the structure for the training, and the timeframe? To name a few, such topics to be covered are “Do you know your association?”, “Who are you? Knowing your personality and leadership style.”, “Are you a leader? Top 10 leadership qualities.” and “Where does my time go? How to prioritize and schedule your time.” The VPAR Leadership Program will consist of three (3) full 1-day trainings of two to three sessions per day. Trainings will be held on the following dates: Day 1 – May 21, 2019; Day 2 – July 16, 2019; Day 3 – September 24, 2019.
Class participation is encouraged. There will be opportunities for networking as the class will engage deeply with REALTOR leadership at the local, state and national level, cultivate relationships, and explore opportunities to volunteer and those levels and in our communities. Additionally, each day’s training and activities will be followed by our students attending VPAR socials if scheduled.
The application deadline is January 15, 2019. Tuition cost is $750. Tuition may be paid by someone other than the participant such as broker/sponsor/colleagues/co-workers/friends/family members. Tuition must be paid by February 21, 2019 if accepted into the program. VPAR LEAD participants will be introduced on March 2, 2019 at the VPAR OSC Banquet. Graduation will be held at the 2019 Installation Banquet in November.
