Following are the requirements to obtain WCR's Performance Management Network Designation, which is an official REALTOR® Designation.
1. Must be a REALTOR®, REALTOR-Associate® or REALTOR® Association Executive and a Women's Council member in good standing to complete the online application.
- Applicants for the Designation will be charged $125 (includes a $75 one-time designation application fee and $50 for the first year’s designation dues).
- Annual Dues: A $50 annual fee will be invoiced with your membership dues in subsequent years.
2. Successfully complete at least three Performance Management Network courses:

- Leadership Excellence
- The Business of Your Business: Formula, Financials, Function & Freedom (Available Online)
- Harnessing the Power: Skills Based Performance Management
Any one of the following National Association of REALTORS® certifications may be used to replace one PMN course credit, or if you've held the CRS designation for one year this may also count in lieu of one PMN course. (Note: Only one course can be waived for the designation. A minimum of two PMN curriculum courses must be taken to obtain the designation regardless of the number of certifications/designations held):
- At Home with Diversity (AHWD)
- Broker Price Opinion Resource (BPOR)
- Certified Real Estate Team Specialist (CRETS)
- Military Relocation Professional (MRP)
- Resort & Second-Home Property Specialist (RSPS)
- Short Sales and Foreclosures Resource (SFR)
3. Submit documented evidence of closed referral transactions (sales) within the past 24 months totaling 30 points as follows:
- To/from another national WCR member = 10 points each
- To/from a non-WCR REALTOR®* = 5 points each
- From a client = 2 points each
* Recruit this REALTOR® to become a National WCR member, and you double the points earned.
Examples of documentation include company referral form, copy of check, client lists or a signed statement from a broker. Be sure to include closing date and information.
Members eligible for the designation (REALTORS®, REALTOR-Associates® or REALTOR® Association Executives) who do not list or sell (i.e. real estate trainers, managers or REALTORS® in affiliate positions) may satisfy this requirement by recruiting three REALTORS® to join WCR as national members.
