It has been a very rewarding year to be a part of the Ontario Real Estate Association’s YPN Committee. Not only have we developed new resources for members and local boards, but we’ve started to create a framework for working together with YPNs throughout the province to make an impact in the lives of REALTORS®.
We have a vision of creating a provincial movement that is unified by the goal of supporting and fostering the next generation of real estate leaders. This year at OREA’s 2017 Annual Conference we’ll be getting together with YPN representatives from across Ontario to talk about how we can make that goal a reality during the YPN Roundtable.
Specifically, we’ll be asking our colleagues from throughout the province to help us better understand what tools and activities will most enable OREA and local YPNs to support and collaborate with one another on an ongoing basis.
The Roundtable will also feature a discussion about best practices for engaging members in YPN initiatives.
The Roundtable will be taking place from 3:00PM to 5:00Pm on Wednesday March 1, 2017 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto. Participation in the Roundtable is free and open to all local board staff, board members, and committee members. You can register for the roundtable by e-mailing Kris Fortomaris at email@example.com and expressing your interest (please register soon as space is limited).
I really hope that you will consider coming out and being part of this ground breaking discussion. Making the changes that we want to see in our industry depends on each of us, and getting involved in the YPN movement is one of the best ways to be part of making that change.
I hope to see you there!
