Introduction to Leadership
ACAR is building leaders and we want to get you involved! As a member you’ve probably heard that ACAR has Committees and a Board of Directors. You’ve heard that people go to Columbus for meetings at the Ohio Association of REALTORS and to national conferences as well. You probably know some people who are involved and maybe you are wondering what it’s all about. Well, we have a great way to fill you in…
ACAR is hosting a new “Introduction to Leadership” session featuring information about the various volunteer opportunities at the association, insights from successful REALTORS® who are also volunteer leaders, plus, a networking reception and informal committee fair. It’s the perfect way to learn what’s available and talk directly with fellow members who are currently involved.
This event is free, but please RSVP if you plan to attend.
