KatrinaWehr_picKatrina Wehr, 2016 President-Elect for Boise Regional REALTORS® and managing broker for Keller Williams Realty Boise, was selected as one of 19 people who will participate in the 2017 National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) Leadership Academy.

“Throughout the lengthy application and interview process, Katrina clearly demonstrated that she was driven, confident, and embodies the true heart of volunteer leader,” said Kit Fitzgerald, REALTOR® with Red Barn Real Estate and 2016 Vice Chair for NAR’s Leadership Academy Advisory Committee. “As someone who has served alongside Katrina in leadership roles, I am thrilled that she will be representing Idaho through this program.”

Fitzgerald was one of the first REALTORS® from the Boise region to attend NAR’s Leadership Academy. She currently serves as a National Director from Boise Regional REALTORS® and as the West District Vice President for Idaho REALTORS®. Tracy Kasper, 2016 President of Idaho REALTORS® and broker of Silverhawk Realty, is also a graduate, making Wehr just the third person from the Boise region to participate.

The Leadership Academy provides intensive training on legislative issues, advocacy, and leadership development to REALTORS® who volunteer with their local and state associations, and are poised for future national leadership positions.

“Katrina’s commitment to the real estate industry is outstanding,” said Breanna Vanstrom, Chief Executive Officer for Boise Regional REALTORS®. “She has a command of best practices and professional standards, and always has the best interest of our members and the association at heart. The additional skills she’ll gain through this training will be a tremendous asset when she leads BRR’s Board in 2017.”
