The Time is Now:
Become a National Leader in 2024
By Kerri Hartnett, 2023 President-Elect
That’s right, the time is NOW! If you are reading this article, you are a Women's Council member interested in giving back to the Real Estate Industry while honing your leadership skills. As your President-Elect, I want to ensure that next year we will continue the great momentum we have in extending our participation at the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), and this means you need to act in the next 60 days for national NAR appointments. While I have your attention, I also want to walk you through the process of how to get involved nationally at the Women’s Council. I know that 2024 seems a long way off, but now is the time to start preparing.
Leadership Identification and Development Process of
Women's Council of REALTORS®
The Leadership Identification & Development (LID) volunteer application deadline for 2024 is June 1, 2023. You must begin by filling out the volunteer application, which will be sent to staff and disseminated to appropriate state leaders. Appointments will be made starting this summer for 2024. Opportunities include (but are not limited to): Social media influencers, meeting ambassadors, trade show booth volunteers, inspiration/pledge speakers at national meetings, election volunteers, project teams, finance & budget committee, and Network 360 Leadership Conference faculty. We continually refine national volunteer opportunities, and we encourage members to go through the LID process for volunteer openings that are yet unforeseen.
The process to get involved at NAR
The 2024 NAR committee application website is open through May 15. Because NAR values your involvement at Women’s Council, you will want to highlight this experience, as well as your PMN designation, as you go through the application process. It is essential that you also take the time to get recommendations for the positions you are seeking. We encourage all interested members to get started immediately.
We encourage our members that are interested in leadership opportunities to monitor our Leadership Pathways webpage. We continue to update this page throughout the year as opportunities arise.
