Introduction to Leadership


Introduction to Leadership Logo


You’ve probably heard about committees or the Board of Directors at BRR but maybe weren’t sure what they did, or if it was something you should get involved with. We have a way for you to figure it out…

BRR is hosting a new “Introduction to Leadership” session featuring information about the various volunteer opportunities at the association, insights from successful REALTORS® who are also volunteer leaders, plus, a fun and informal committee fair. It’s the perfect way to learn what’s available and talk directly with fellow members who are currently involved.
