Women’s Council of REALTORS® Texas Chapter:

President’s Message


Fall is here, cool weather will hopefully visit your town soon!  It certainly has been a HOT summer, in many ways!  All of our Local Chapters have been busy with some fantastic events, keeping their members educated and entertained! 

Our State Meetings in Austin were HOT!  Members were kept busy with all the activities… Winners Circle Reception, Welcome Reception at McCormick & Schmick’s, Conference Welcome, Committee Meetings, Learning Lab Sessions, Paradise Luau WCR Texas Style, the Governing Board and Elections Meeting/General Membership Meeting, and our Installation of 2012 Officers Luncheon.  Thanks to those of you who attended and took advantage of the opportunities to learn and share.

Our FALL schedule is busy, busy, busy!  We will all be seeing a lot of each other in the next few months!  In just two weeks, we will be attending 2012 Leadership Orientation in Frisco, TX.  Specific information is in the newsletter.  November 9-13 are the dates for our WCR National Meetings in Anaheim, CA.  Click here for registration information.  December is INSTALLATION season for our Local Chapters.  Congratulations to our 2012 Incoming Officers.  Please provide the dates for your Installation Meetings to your Governors so that we may share with all of our members.

Many thanks to Cheryl Jenkins and Chris Rodriguez for their diligence in putting together our State Newsletter!

See you soon,

Sharon Eddings
