RebrandimageYou may have already noticed some of the changes happening with Women’s Council’s education: innovative Pop-Up PMN classes held in conjunction with our national conferences, a new and easier delivery model for local Networks, and our new virtual course offerings with Champion’s School of Real Estate, which have really taken off with high-member satisfaction. For new candidates, more delivery options translate into more designees, with growth of over 20% year on year.

We are pleased to announce a new partnership with the Residential Real Estate Council (RRC) to bring you new online modules to help build your career and provide you with more options to complete your PMN and CRS designations. Some course options include finance, running business in the cloud, and business growth courses, all of which are designed to give students the necessary skill sets to be business leaders. Since the courses are short (2 hours), you need to take three of the two hour modules to satisfy one PMN course elective. Why partner with Residential Real Estate Council? According to our last member survey, our membership has a 30% crossover, so its only natural for the Council to collaborate with RRC and deepen our partnership.

On a personal note, I received my designation many years ago. The classes I've taken over the years have given me the poise and confidence to speak publicly, which I do often, and the tools to become a better leader in both my community and business endeavors. From running an effective organized meeting to building my bottom line, the education through Women's Council's has been pivotal for my personal growth and success. I'm excited about the learning opportunities that these partnerships allow and I hope you'll take advantage of them.
