May 2019 WOMEN'S COUNCIL OF REALTORS MEMBERS and Strategic Partners,


Pardon our "dust" the Women's Council HQ put the website (which impacted our website) under contruction.  We did not have access to our new members, roster or ability to update our calendar this past month.   

We now have 74 REALTOR MEMBERS AND 8 National Strategic Partners and our local strategic partnership membership has expanded to grown to over 20+ strategic partners.   

There's been an upswing in activity in our local markets and business seems to be in full swing.  

Our Leadership Team Just attended the Women's of Council Spring Conference in Sacramento, CA. 

Nine members of our network attended the conference!  

We presented a Network Spotlight video that Social Media Chairperson Cynthia Peterson put togehter with her husband Mark.  

Donna Souza, the local state Governor for our network was in attendance.  Maria Kopf, Envoy Mortgage attended, our local network Treasurer.  Vivian Miller, Keller Williams, our Events Chairperson shared our event calendar for the year and rubbed elbows with the other events directors.  Jeanne Anderson, our President-elect,  Alain Pinel, was in full support. Cynthia Peterson, Dudum REG, our Social Media Director and her Project Manager, Vanessa McDaniel, Compass were posting and taking pictures of all the events and dinners.  Judy Myers, Past State President and current Ways and Means was a pillar of poise.  Gina Cefalu, RE/MAX Accord, Current Network President helped present the Network Spotlight.   Elections were held, partnerships formed and collaboration of ideas for continuation of a strong 2019. 

Elections in August!  

If you would like an opportunity to be in a leadership role for next year or help with the Fashion Show this year, we are looking for volunteers!  Please contact any member of the leadership team.
