September Challenge

September Challenge - 

 We have such an amazing group of members who participate EVERY Tuesday on our ZOOM calls. 

All of this began with a morning coffee that Marie Story first hosted in May of 2020. A devoted group of ActiveRain members carried the weekly meet-ups from that week on…, and we have not missed a week since - that adds up to 66 wonderful weeks!

 

We have had some AMAZING presenters and this month’s challenge is to add some ideas for future presentations at our ZOOM meet-ups. The last quarter of 2021 is wide open for speakers…

 

So who would you like to hear?

What topic would you like discussed?

On what subject would you like to speak?


Here are just a few ideas:

 

Panels - what panel topics would you like to participate in? We have a LOT of retirees in our AR membership. How did you plan for retirement? 

 

Topics - what would you like to hear, and who do you recommend?

  • Home Inspection Updates
  • Divorce
  • Choosing a Broker 
  • Panel on holding transactions together
  • Condos, coops nightmares
  • Making a home accessible
  • Wells and septic
  • Creative negotiations- suggestions for a panel
  • RE Teams vs. Independent Agents/Brokers
  • Hobbies that incorporate or focus on RE, i.e., golf, art, horses, beach, resort, skiing, travel.
  • RE technology
  • Remote closings
  • Sharing or Designing Your Home office

 

There is so much knowledge, talent, creativity, and professionalism in our membership here in the Rain. 

 

Who and what would you like to see in our ZOOM meetings?

Would YOU like to present to the group?

 

NOW for the details…

 

Present your suggestion(s) in one post for a total of 1,000 points. 

 

The post must be 300+ words and include a graphic or a video. 

 

Enter the link to your post in the comments below by midnight PST on September 30, 2021.

 

While you don’t have to be a regular ZOOM attendee to participate in this month’s challenge, we would still love to hear from you. We would relish hearing a presentation from YOU or have you join us on Tuesdays to hear your suggestion for a presenter/panel. If you attend one meeting, rest assured, you’ll be hooked!

 

By the way, if you haven’t joined us on Tuesdays @ 2:00 EST, we would LOVE to have you join this fun crowd!


HERE is the link to our weekly meet-up. We hope to see you there!

Brian England, And we all learned and loved your well-prepared presentation!  What a good idea to bring back some of the previous topics and presenters. So much knowledge among our members. So many Rainers can speak and present on many topics. We have had a few repeat members, and all have been wonderful. 

Good idea for the contest, and thank you!

I will have to think about this one.  It does sound like a great idea for the contest and should generate a lot of interesting topics for our Zoom Meetings.

Buzz Mackintosh Thanks for this idea of having a panel discussion of AR members sharing their experiences of placing successful referrals. There are so many success stories for many of us. I will try to call you this week to talk more about it.

I am a huge fan of the Zoom meetings (and you, and Debe, and all the folks who commit and show up and have made it the awesome virtual meet-up it is today) and I look forward to it every week. I'm also bummed out when I can't make it. I truly hope we can keep this going.. here are a few topic suggestions:
