Education Major Focus at NAR Conference

real-estate-education

Recently, members of the Women’s Council of REALTORS Austin Network attended the National Association of REALTORS Conference in San Diego, California. As usual, NAR did not disappoint with their plethora of education topics. These conferences offer a depth of education on a variety of topics that is unmatched.

Any REALTOR, in any specialty, at any level in their career will find topics and education to bring their “game” to the next level. Last year, being stationary and having no network events to distract me, I registered to attend the NAR Virtual Conference, my first conference. At the end of the conference, which I attended on my couch, I was a completely different person, ready to spread knowledge about the importance of our national, state and local associations. My path was more clear as I had grown in areas that I had been unaware needed my attention.

If you’re skeptical, register for the virtual ticket next year, which in and of itself has a spectacular offering of education. Just for S&G’s (smirks and giggles) go one-step further and peruse the sessions that are offered only in-person. These additional sessions are well worth the additional investment in your career and in yourself. I mention the latter because my greatest “AHA-moment” (credit to my favorite instructor, Candy Cooke, for that phrase) seemed to be repetitious in so many of the sessions I attended this year… “don’t forget your why!”

Our day-to-day goal-getting can easily become overwhelming and monopolize our time. The message I needed to hear repeatedly this year was to be present in the moment, to be present for my family and for my relationships.

Women’s Council is so dedicated to “advancing [women] as business leaders in the industry and communities we serve” that there are grants and drawings for education offered year-round which can be saved up and used to absorb some of the cost of events like the NAR Conference.
