Cape Coral-Fort Myers
I am truly honored to be the 2022 President of the Women’s Council of Realtors® Cape Coral-Fort Myers Network.
Education, Referrals, Networking, and Leadership are the four pillars of the Women's Council, but I have found that this organization offers so much more than that. It is an organization that is made up of individuals that are caring, compassionate, supportive and loving, who pull together when times are tough and who celebrate together when things go right.
Like many people, I thought, before joining, why would I want to join a group of Realtors that I compete with every day. I soon learned that this was a misconception since this group is not my competition, but one that genuinely cares about each of its members and is always willing to lend a hand whenever needed.
I would like to thank those who have volunteered as Chairs of the different Project Teams. As Chair of the different 2022 Project teams, each one contributes immeasurably to the success of our organization.
Parlimentarian: Donna Stout
Strategic Planning: Pogo Gorwood
Bylaws & Standing Rules: Beate Wunderer
Marketing and Communication Chair: Patrick Burns
Education Chair: Larry Brewster
Hospitality Chair: Charlene Rodriguez
FunRaising Chair: Tammye Cates
Sponsorship Chair: Susan Schreiber-Martin
Awards & Scholarship Chair: Margie Birch
Travel Chair: Michele Schafer
Goodwill: Debbie Doerge
Another huge component of the organization is our Strategic Partners. With their support we are able to offer products and services that are Real Estate industry related that can benefit our members. It is our Network’s goal to consistently provide relevant education and value-added leadership training to both Members and Partners. To accomplish these goals, it is vital to provide the tools to succeed, both professionally and personally. With the help of our Strategic Partners we are able to support, achieve and exceed these goals.
One goal for 2022 is to increase our member numbers so that we become a Mega Network once again. The goal would become a reality if each of us encouraged one or two prospective members to join. We can do it if you help us.
In 2022, we are aiming to bring you exciting educational and fun social events for you to learn and enjoy with your friends. If you are a current member watch for our monthly newsletters letting you know what is happening. If you are thinking about joining us, please feel free to reach out with any questions that you may have.
Thank you so much,
Yvonne Torsok, PA
