Realtor's Association of the Palm Beaches-Twice the Fun and It Was Successful!

Yesterday was another of the RAPB's Monthly Lunch on the House functions.   But this time... we let technology strut their stuff!.  Palm Beach County is one of the largest counties in the state of Florida and to serve all of their Realtors, the Association has their main office in West Palm Beach and a Member Service office in Boca Raton.   

Our monthly lunches have been alternating between the two offices.  That may only be a 27 mile difference between the two offices but the drive time for a busy Realtor can be 45 minutes or more depending upon traffic.  

RAPB


So, thanks to modern technology, we had the first joint Lunch on the House..... and from what I could see it was a success!  Our speaker, Danielle Boutin, Manager of Emerging Technologies at RAPB, was at the West Palm Beach office and caught us up on Facebook .  

Realtors in Boca Raton watched and listened to Danielle's presentation and could also ask questions.  There were Affiliates in Boca as well.  

Having the lunch in both places allows more members to attend and have access to the many educational topics that are presented. 




A Few FaceBook Facts:

*There are 750 million active Facebook users. 
*50% Log on every day.
*The average user has 130 Friends. 
* We spend 700 billion minutes /month on FB.
*70% of Facebook users are outside the U.S. 

If you're a Realtor in Palm Beach and not taking advantages of the services our RAPB offers, please come to our next Lunch on September 27!

Kathy - it's so great that you are apart of the Realtors Association in Palm Beach. What a great way to network and get your name out there. You've inspired me to join my local association - something I should have done a long time ago, but never did. No more excuses - you've convinced me! Did you make your world famous brownies?

Hi Kathy,

 It's wonderful that you are active within your local organization. Well spent "marketing" time - you're a smart one. :)

(what about these brownies?)

Kristine- Check to see what kind of Affiliate programs they offer and if they aren't very proactive have them call someone at our RAPB.  And as for the brownies, I would have been sent home until I came back with them if I didn't.  I have one person that always wants the corner pieces.

Debb- We're supposed to bring something to accompany the lunch so since I started doing this I bake brownies and bag them separately, then tie them with my card attached!  

Amy- Can you believe how many people are using it from outside the US!

The Lunch On The House event at The Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches was a very successful event.

Good luck and success.

Lou- I only wish I could be in both places!  Thanks for stopping by.

Brenda- It's amazing.  Danielle said she had to quickly alter her presentation to take into account some of the new features that were introduced just a few days ago.

Hi Kathy--this is great idea.  I have to talk to the Maui Association of Realtors because it would be great to do that here.

Kathy --- the Palm Beach AOR is smart to have joint meetings ---- it sounds like an association that listens and works for its members.  Anything that can save time is a good thing in my book.
