2015 North Shore Illinois Officers

As my term as president draws to a close i want to take this opportunity to thank my extremely suppportive governing board without whom i could not have made it through the year. I also thank our sponsors without whom we could not exist. Thank you also to our members and guests who supported us by attending our  successfyl business meetings and our very profitable charitable event at Pinstripes in october. We went from a struggling apathetic disengaged group of individuals to a very vibrant thriving involved cohesive connected group this past year and I am proud to have played a small part in that growth.

I wish all members could attend the national convention to be able to appreciate the bigger picture and learn the depth of Women's Council of Reltor's influence throughout the country. Some amazaing facts I'd like to share:23% of NAR national leadership positions are held by WCR members, 25% of state board leadership positions are held by WCR members and 65% of WCR members hold leadership positions locally either in or out of real estate. 48% of WCR members contribute to RPAC, showing concern for political issues affecting our business. WCR members earn on average $113,000 per year, versus $40,000 for the average realtor. Just a few extra reasos to become a amember of our organization. We are also going to be expanding into Canada and possibly Brazil in the near future.

So I expect all of you to go out and spread the word that it pays to be a member of WCR.

Let's continue to grow our chapter in 2016 and beuond.
