Area C-7 Chapters focus on GROWTH!

Bay Area

Lead by Don Jones, the Bay Area Chapter continues to grow and strengthen its presence in their area.  They have been having several strong Business Luncheons that are starting to pack out the room.

The Chapter secured Ronnie and Cathy Matthews for their September Business Luncheon. This TOP PRODUCING duo gave and shared tips for members to learn about how they built their business. Ronnie and Cathy are one of the TOP TEAMS in Texas and the United States.

Then their 18th Annual Jewels and Jeans Charity Bash!! What an event… The singers were Mickey Hobbs with Martin Griffin. The MC for the event was Kelly Spees Williams. Great event, Great time, and Fundraising for Texas Children Hospital.

Lastly, in August, the Bay Area Chapter had a Hawaiian Luna Party partnered with Taylor Morrison in Mar Bella in League City. Great event, Good turnout, and all had fun. This chapter is back and well on its way…


The Houston Chapter continues to grow their chapter and packing out rooms for their Business Luncheons. In October, Chuck Poteet is the Speaker. Chuck is a veteran in the Houston area and will be sharing about his approach, experience, and take on the real estate industry.

In September, the Houston Chapter had a sound TOP PRODUCER PANEL that included Speakers like: Bill Baldwin, Larry Mercer, Diane Kingshill, and Chris Wylie. This awesome panel did a great job which resulted in a standing ovation.

If September wasn’t awesome enough, in August the Houston Chapter secured local celebrity Mattress Mack, owner of Gallery Furniture, was the Speaker and talked about “True Service for Our Customers”. His topic was about focusing on setting High Standards for ourselves and for the service we provide, as well as truly providing the service we PROMISE!

Lastly, this group is really thinking outside the box. At their Business Luncheons, they sell tables for $205.99 on their invitations. They give guest opportunity to purchase a table at a more economical price than paying per seat. GREAT IDEA!!!!

Golden Triangle

Lead by Donna Bennefield, this chapter is still in the pursuit of growing and coining the WCR organization as an educational leader in their market. The attendance at monthly Business Luncheons are increasing in size, seeing a consistent increase in attendance.  And, they have had standing room only at many of their events.  In July they hosted “Bingo, Bingo, Bingo” at Rockin A and the final prize was $600 – Wow!

A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to their Leadership – Donna Bennefield-Chapter President, Stacey Long-President Elect, James Johnson-VP of Membership, Barry Behannan-Treasurer and Jennifer Nesom along with their dedicated members for increasing their total National Membership by almost 50% – job well done!  This chapter is on the move and we look to great things from them in 2015!

Lake Houston

The word “Growth” is an understatement for this Chapter! Chapter Kathleen Sandy is the “CAPTAIN” of the Lake Houston Ship and she has done a great job.

They grow this chapter because they have GREAT topics at their Business Resource Luncheons that attract GUEST and MEMBERS.

Their August Business Resource Luncheon was entitled: “E&O Insurance! Keep out of Hot Water”. This great training enlightened Guests and Members about how easy it is to get in and stay out of trouble.

September Business Luncheon was equally a hit! The topic: “Killer Listings and How to Kill your Listing”. What a topic!! Many Agents want to know how to list more properties. This training covered that exact topic and everybody enjoyed the message. Most people seemed to walk away with a nugget about how to grow their business.
