Rosanna’s Recap San Francisco National meeting and Installation
by Rosanna Garcia
This year’s National meeting in San Francisco was stellar. Not only did we have the usual great education sessions and speakers, but we as California members were proud to welcome our fellow REALTORS® to California to the city by the bay!
The meetings were held at the Hilton Union Square. Women’s Council also had its first ever graduation of the Leadership Institute in which Sabrina Brown and I had the privilege of being chosen to participate in, we both were proud to represent California and receive our certificate of completion and our pin! The Institute also required us to plan and present an educational session at our National meeting. The experience was wonderful and our members loved the presentations and got many good tips from them.
In addition to graduation of the Leadership Institute we had 47 members receiving their PMN designations, including our President Elect Eileen Oldroyd!
Other sessions included a panel of woman business owners and how they got started and were funded by one of our National partners. We also heard from the always funny and informative Leigh Brown. She kept everyone engaged and laughing with her presentation on Generational marketing.
The installation had a great turnout and a good time was had by all. California represented well and the room was filled with many well wishers and dignitaries. Our 2019 CA State President, Fiona Theseira, was installed as Regional Vice President for Region 8. There was an after party at the top of the Hilton, which included champagne, wine and dancing. The members danced the night away and the views were spectacular.
The conference, installation and visit to one of California’s finest cities were all wonderful. As usual we spent time networking with our California peers, and other members from across the country. The relationships you forge at these meetings are priceless. The networking and referrals that result from it are just a bonus.
See you all soon in Anaheim, February 2-4, 2020 for our Winter meeting and our CA leadership team installation! Hope to see you all there!
