2nd Quarter Newletter
June 30, 2012

Hot, Hot, Hot… WCR is muy caliente! The slogan for our Summer Recruitment Contest well illustrates our current status with 21 local chapters winning GOLD, 4 local Chapters winning SILVER, and four Chapters of the Year Awards received at the WCR Mid Year Meeting! Congratulations to all…

The Mid Year Meeting in DC was very successful. The new hotel proved to be an improvement with closer access to the NAR action, multitude of meetings rooms and an outdoor meeting area for networking. The education sessions were outstanding with many of our Texas delegation involved in a variety of roles.

The 2nd quarter newsletter contains articles from sessions attended during the Mid Year Meeting. We believe it is important to share the information/data learned with those that were unable to attend. We are committed to 24/7 learning opportunities as afforded by our newsletter and website.

One of the favorite aspects of the role of president is the privilege of visiting the local chapters. I have already visited several with more planned. The hope is to visit all twenty-five chapters by the end of the year.

Our Facebook page continues to be very active with various items: monthly leaders for our Membership Contest, Tools You Can Use, local  chapter Entrepreneurs of the Year, new Faces of Texas every month in addition to the posts by the officers. In July, our local chapter presidents will be posting in lieu of the State Officers.

Congratulations to the new slate for the 2013 State Chapter Officers. Election will be held, September 8th at the Governing Board Meeting in San Antonio, TX.

Plans are being made to make the Fall Conference – with our WCR University Fall Training Sessions, committee meetings, free 2 hour MCE class, Governing Board meeting and Installation of the 2013 State Officers – outstanding. We need your help to make it all possible.

Until the end of the third quarter…. Remain committed to excellence.
