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.
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!
