Just-in-time Hot Topic Ideas

These just-in-time hot topic ideas for chapter programs were collected by the Professional Development Forum at the November 2012 National Conference in Orlando.  The list is a great source of program ideas that are out of the box, up to date programs that will provide usable information to your members.  These topics may be used for your Business Resource Meeting Program, for an Education Session topic, or for a 3-5 minute Hot Topic presentation at the end of your meeting.  Our goal is to provide topics that are of educational value to members and prospective member to use in the business!
Scanning Activity for Your Chapter
Have your leadership team participate in a scanning activity using the Scanning Tool and a Sample List of resources to identify multiple opportunities, resources, and people, which might generate hot real estate issues and trends. Then transform your ideas into educational opportunities.

Serving on the Professional Development Forum was a positive learning experience and a great opportunity to develop relationships with the Forum members and National Officer Liaisons.  I encourage you to take the opportunity to participate at the National level by submitting the National Focus application to the committee at our State Meetings.
