Green at­tends nat’l. lead­er­ship con­fer­ence

Dorchester Star - - LOCAL -

CAM­BRIDGE — Dor­maim Green, pres­i­dent-elect of Mid-Shore Board of Real­tors and bro­ker of The Prop­erty Shoppe in Cam­bridge, re­cently at­tended the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Real­tors Lead­er­ship Sum­mit in Chicago.

This lead­er­ship sum­mit of­fers in­com­ing as­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dents the op­por­tu­nity to net­work with other as­so­ci­a­tion board pres­i­dents from across the nation. This an­nual meet­ing gives the new pres­i­dents the chance to ex­pe­ri­ence the depth and strength of the na­tional as­so­ci­a­tion.

“It was an in­cred­i­ble ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­nity and one that will help me as next year’s pres­i­dent,” Green said. She also com­mented that con­tin­u­ing her ed­u­ca­tion and strength­en­ing lead­er­ship skills is a pri­or­ity.

This year’s theme was “Tell Your Story” and pres­i­dents-elect and the staff ex­ec­u­tives of lo­cal and state as­so­ci­a­tions were in­vited to share their story of how and why they are in this in­dus­try.

At­ten­dees heard from di­verse speak­ers such as top ex­ec­u­tives with Redfin and Open­door, both newer real es­tate busi­ness mod­els. Keep­ing with the sto­ry­telling theme, Pla­ton An­to­niou, world-renowned pho­tog­ra­pher, told sto­ries and con­ver­sa­tions about tak­ing pho­to­graphs of world lead­ers. And Inky John­son gave an emo­tional and in­spi­ra­tional story of go­ing from the num­ber one draft pick to fight­ing for his life af­ter an in­jury in a Univer­sity of Ten­nessee foot­ball game.

The two-day con­fer­ence gave the in­com­ing lead­er­ship a chance to learn cur­rent trends in real es­tate, de­velop con­tacts through­out the U.S., hear from rec­og­nized lead­ers in the in­dus­try, and un­der­stand the re­sources avail­able to them.

The mis­sion of the Mid-Shore Board of Real­tors is to ad­vo­cate for its mem­bers and the pub­lic to pre­serve the right to own, trans­fer and uti­lize real prop­erty. The board pro­vides its mem­bers with re­sources to con­duct busi­ness professionally in ac­cor­dance with the Re­al­tor Code of Ethics.

Dor­maim Green, pres­i­dent-elect of the MidShore Board of Real­tors, stands in front of the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Real­tors head­quar­ters in Chicago.
