Leadership Pathways

Women's Council is a leadership organization, and as part of our mission, we are structured to provide you, the member, with leadership opportunities that enrich both our organization and you as a leader.

Whether a task force, governing board or assisting in running an election, opportunities abound for your involvement.

Please review the overall 2022 process (in 2021) by reading our March eConnect article on becoming a national leader.


Leadership Identification & Development

Action Months: March - May, 2022

The 2021 committee application period has ended. This is information for 2022.

Process for LID applicants: You will begin by filling out the volunteer application. Depending on which local Network you belong to, this will then go to your state leadership along with National Staff.

Process for LID Committee: Visit state information & forms for more information on the application guidelines.

Appointments will be made beginning in June 2022 for 2023 opportunities. Opportunities include (but are not limited to): liaison positions to NAR, finance & budget committee, project teams, Network 360 leadership conference faculty, inspiration/pledge speakers at national meetings, election volunteers, trade show booth volunteers, and meeting ambassadors. Other leadership opportunities arise as well, so participating in the process raises your volunteer leadership profile.

Note that the Leadership Identification & Development application and process is separate from 2022 Women's Council Leadership Institute application process. The application period opens in June 2021.

Guidelines and Information for LID Applicants

  • Check with your State Network for their 2022 application deadline.
  • Your state must review and submit recommendations to National by June 1st, 2021.

Please do not simply list all the organizational positions you have held.

Please do include the skills you have and the results that you have achieved. Be sure to include skills that you want to learn or build on.


Mastermind Groups

Leadership Institute

Action Months: May - July 2021

While many organizations have Leadership Institutes and Academies, Women’s Council leadership’s 80-year track record and proven system in creating leaders is considered the gold standard in the industry. The Leadership Institute develops leaders who have demonstrated leadership potential through their local and state network, with the goal of creating a network of industry experts across the country who are actively involved in improving our Council.
