INDIANA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® Leadership Academy “I was certain that there was nothing I could learn from the Academy. MAN, WAS I WRONG. Working with the students in the classes, with the outstanding instruction from so many wonderful people (Sherry, Jack, Paul, etc.), and with Rudy Koch as my mentor, I very quickly found out what it means to be humbled. My classmates tolerated all my shortcomings, and exchanged tons of very valuable insights during late night chats. I couldn't believe the feeling of teamwork and mutual trust that came of this. What great human beings these folks are.” -Dave HardiekSr, Class of 2009
