NATIONAL FOCUS - LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT


STATE CHAPTER COMMITMENT TO LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

One of the essential roles of all state chapters is leadership development. The Missouri State Chapter provides mentoring and coaching support to local WCR Chapters and their leaders. In all of its activities, the Missouri State Chapter provides networking opportunities, forums, etc. for local leaders to learn from each other, share information, work on issues of concern, etc. The Missouri State Chapter is part of the leader identification and cultivation process for local, state and national leadership positions:.

  • Use tools developed by national (e.g., leadership criteria, systems, checklists, etc.) and consult with local chapters on leadership development processes and strategies.
  • Create a ‘swat’ team that can help local chapters address critical issues.
  • Observe emerging leadership and recommend candidates for national leadership opportunities via the Missouri State Chapter's National Focus Committee.
  • Coach and mentor WCR member for individual achievement.
  • Ensure that any event held by the Missouri State Chapter includes tangible opportunities for networking and relationship building.

NATIONAL FOCUS STANDING COMMITTEE

The Committee Chairman and a minimum of 2 REALTOR® members are appointed by the Missouri State Chapter President. The incoming Missouri State Chapter President reports the name of the Chair to the national Vice President of Membership each year in December. The Chairman and the members should have extensive Women’s Council knowledge and experience (local, state and national).  The Committee is responsible for:

  • Exploring ways to gain national prominence for the state, through networking and participation, and to keep members informed of national issues and opportunities.   
  • Identifying, developing and positioning qualified members for national leadership roles.
  • Encouraging attendance and participation at State and National Meetings.
  • Submit Recommendations to National WCR by May 1 of each year.

INVITE A NATIONAL OFFICER

PREPARING FOR THE NATIONAL OFFICER’S VISIT

Before the National Officer Arrives:

  • Make the hotel reservation in the Officer’s name so her office and family can reach them.  Their accommodation should be the hotel’s best available single room.  Room, tax and incidentals should be charged to your meeting’s master account.  The Officer should not be asked to post a credit card upon check-in or check-out. 
  • Send a news release to your local media (include local and state REALTOR® publications)
  • Arrange for media coverage of the Officer’s visit
  • Choose a small gift for the Officer as a remembrance of their visit (National has a list of ideas)
  • Assign a host to be with the Officer during their visit
  • Arrange complimentary tickets to all WCR function
  • At least two weeks before the meeting, e-mail the National Office and the Officer the final meeting agenda, the name and phone number of the person picking her up at the airport and the hotel confirmation number.

Day of Arrival:

  • Before picking up the Officer at the airport, check on their hotel accommodations. Check into the room for their and make sure their room charges are set to be charged to your master account.
  • Depending on budget, have flowers and/or refreshments in the Officer’s room with a welcome note 
  • Verify flight arrival status.
  • Meet the Officer in the baggage claim area and have a placard with the Officer’s name for easy identification.

After the Officer Arrives:

  • If time permits, the Officer may wish to rest and/or unpack first. Find out their preference. The Officer is there to meet the members and wants to be with you or the group so don’t allow for too much unscheduled time. 
  • Confirm with the Officer the scheduling of their activities (what they will be doing, when, where and with whom)
  • Seat the Officer at the head table at all WCR functions and, if possible, at any other REALTOR® functions they attend. 
  • Arrange for someone to take the Officer to the airport at the end of their trip. If it is necessary for them to stay an extra night due to their itinerary, plan to have dinner with them and for them to be taken to the airport the next day.
