Greater West Houston – Membership Marketing Chair, Tammy Vandermeulen

The Greater West Houston Chapter of WCR has been very active in trying to retain and build membership. We are speaking at local Real Estate Schools, attending HAR meetings and have joined the local Chamber of Commerce. We have contacted our past members by phone and email telling them that they are missed and about the changes we have made this year. We also asked for their input on what would add value for them.  We are powering things up with a Power Couples in Real Estate event where contestants compete for a spot in the 2016 Power Couples Calendar.  More than 20 top-producing husband & wife teams in real estate compete for votes from their peers in real estate.  On July 23rd from 4pm-6pm, couples will converge at the swanky M5250 Luxury Apartments in the Galleria where they will enjoy a fun filled evening on the 6th floor rooftop pool deck with sweeping views of the Houston skyline.  The Power Couples event and the Power Couples Calendar have this chapter excited about the funds that will be raised and the opportunity to bring in many new members. All while have a great time.  Greater West Houston has 24 REALTOR® members and 6 National Affiliate members. 

Houston Chapter – Michael Brown – VP of Membership

The Houston Chapter continues to have capacity seating at their Business Resource meetings.  They recently held a membership mixer at Laurenzo’s to recruit new members and retain their current members.  The Houston Chapter has 35 REALTOR® members and 5 Affiliate members.

Montgomery Council – VP of Membership  – Connie Parsons

The Montgomery County Chapter is moving forward in recruiting new Realtor Members.  We had a mixer on Lake Conroe at Fajita Jacks where we gathered on the patio, overlooking the lake at dusk, and enjoyed the getting to know our members on a more personal level…Our Governor Beth Fitzgerald came to town for our June Governing Board and Business Resource Meeting and joined in the evening fun at the lake. We had a planned outing to the Astros game that was canceled and rescheduled for September because of the Tropical Storm “Bill”.

We are now in the process of planning for out August mixer. We will be  visiting some of the newly opened Restaurants in The Hughes Landing area of The Woodlands.  Montgomery County has 55 REALTOR® members and 11 Affiliate members.
