EASTON — Mid-Shore Board of Realtors President-elect Judy Germain-Dinges, who is an agent with Benson and Mangold in Easton, attended the National Association of Realtors Leadership Summit in Chicago, Ill, in August.
The Leadership Summit offered the in-coming association presidents the opportunity to network with other association board presidents from across the nation and to experience the depth and strength of the National Association.
“It was a very valuable educational opportunity,” Germain-Dinges said.
Attendees heard from numerous National Association of Realtors managers and the volunteer leadership team as well as presentations from Jamie Driver, an expert on body language and author of “You Say More Than You Think” and “You Can’t Lie to Me.”
Germain-Dinges said understanding these body language tips will be especially useful in meetings and when negotiating for my clients.
Leadership was a core theme, and author and business entrepreneur, Jesse Itzler, gave practical takeaways on how to lead successfully.
The two-day conference gave in-coming leadership the opportunity to hear from the chief economist regarding real estate forecast and trends. They also heard from recognized leaders in the industry and were given a better understanding of the resources available.
The mission of the Mid-Shore Board of Realtors (MSBR) is to advocate for its members and the public to preserve the right to own, transfer and utilize real property. MSBR provides its members with resources to conduct business professionally in accordance with the Realtor Code of Ethics.
