Hello VPAR Family!
In 2022, we have expanded the role of the VPAR Nominating Committee, now known as the Leadership Development and Nominating Committee. The change was made in order to better meet the objectives of the following revised VPAR Strategic Plan Objective:
STRATEGIC GOAL 3: EDUCATION: VPAR will provide the members with the education and resources that will enable them to conduct business ethically, successfully, and professionally
STRATEGIC OBJECTIVE 3.C.: Partner with NAR, Virginia REALTORS, and other organizations to develop the local programs and processes to identify and support emerging leaders.
The Committee has several objectives to accomplish in 2022. Although we are admittedly focused on identifying and developing members for varying VPAR leadership roles, we also steadfastly recognize that ALL our members are leaders in one way or another. To getstarted, we have initiated the following strategies for you:
- We realize that many agents are not aware of all the variety of leadership development resources that are available to them. The committee wanted to provide a list of resources that can be found in one place that would be valuable and accessible to everyone. You will find “Leadership Development” under Member Resources VPAR Website. Here you will find a list of resources offering leadership development opportunities. https://bit.ly/3hsN9ob
- The committee will be sponsoring a Quarterly Leadership Development Series. Stay tuned as we announce the date and topic of the first session.
- We will be providing monthly blog articles on the VPAR Website that will address leadership development topics or calling attention to opportunities that you might want to look into.
