You will experience the “power of our network” first hand. This high energy conference will help you in your business and in chapter management too. Don’t miss a beat! Here are a few highlights: • Wednesday: We’ll kick off the conference with our Networking Mixer & Lounge Acts. It promises to be fun and entertaining. • Thursday: Start your morning with us at Connexity, our Networking Continental Breakfast. This event will get you going for the day. The energy continues with our education programs: Innovative Thinking, Authentic Influencer and Influential Business Leaders Panel. You’ll also meet the candidates for 2016 line office & celebrate our PMN Designees during the General Assembly. • Friday: This is an exciting morning with our annual business meeting and elections. We’ll spend the afternoon in officer training workshops that will provide you with dozens of resources to help you lead! • Saturday: We’ve filled the day with high energy education programs with nationally recognized speakers Beth Ziesenis and Leigh Brown. They’ll be sharing tips on setting up the perfect smartphone and team building. Then get ready to celebrate Saturday evening with our future leadership team at the Inaugural Banquet (ticketed event) and Afterparty (open to all attendees). • Sunday: We wrap up the conference with our Governing Board Meeting. With this packed schedule, I want to share with you a few of my favorite tips to maximize your networking opportunities. Go for it! TIP 1: Remember to divide and conquer! Buddy up and split up for the sessions and then share your notes. You’ll take back double the ideas to your members at home. Sharing is what we do best. TIP 2: Share business cards and make notes on the cards you collect to help you remember the person later. Don’t forget to send a note when you get home asking for their referrals. TIP 3: Have fun with your old friends and try to make new friends too. Speaking of fun, don’t forget about our #WCRRocks contest! I want to see the Women’s Council logo and you all over social media! WCR Rocks! So proud to be here with you. Let’s make it a great week. See you in the halls! U Rock!, Sindy Ready, ABR, CRS, GRI, PMN, SRES President Welcometo San Diego and the 2015 Women’s Council of REALTORS® National Conference.
