I recently hosted a sit chat with some eager new members to MIBOR. The 'CEO Chat' was a great intimate yet candid discussion about the new member perspective on our industry. What I found intriguing about those in attendance was their drive to learn and to become involved. Not just involved in the real estate market but as advocates of change and standing up for what’s right.
What else did I learn?
Professionalism and courtesies to peers were topics they felt needed addressing. It struck me that the recent courtesy campaign we have unveiled needs some more energy and repeat sharing.
There may be some misunderstanding of how involved the younger generation wants to be. We all need to figure that out and maximize the collective power of learning together.
This small group of professionals outlined their readiness to meet the challenging pace of this ever-changing industry and provided some insight on their “feel good” moments. While every industry has room for improvement, these members discussions let me know that MIBOR as an organization still has work to do – in the areas of Professional Standards, technology advancements and education.
I look forward to the tasks that were left with me after this discussion. And I sincerely thank those who attended the CEO Chat.
