Record Observer - - News -

AN­NAPO­LIS — Biana Arentz, an agent with Long and Foster (Kent Is­land) and a mem­ber of the Bay Area As­so­ci­a­tion of Real­tors, was one of 22 grad­u­ates from the Mary­land As­so­ci­a­tion of Real­tors 16th an­nual Lead­er­ship Academy hon­ored at cer­e­monies held in An­napo­lis. Arentz re­ceived the Achieve­ment Award.

The MAR Lead­er­ship Academy was formed by Real­tors who un­der­stand the im­por­tant role they play in their com­mu­nity and the need to en­hance the lead­er­ship skills, knowl­edge, and com­pe­ten­cies of fel­low Real­tors in­ter­ested in mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in their per­sonal lives and in their com­mu­ni­ties.

The Bay Area As­so­ci­a­tion of Real­tors, one of 16 lo­cal Real­tor boards/as­so­ci­a­tions in Mary­land, is a strong ad­vo­cate and rec­og­nizes the im­por­tance of this pro­gram to the as­so­ci­a­tion’s fu­ture.

The MAR Lead­er­ship Academy of­fers an in­ten­sive cur­ricu­lum de­signed to de­velop skills in lead­er­ship, com­mu­ni­ca­tions, strate­gic plan­ning, leg­isla­tive and gov­ern­ment af­fairs and com­mu­nity in­volve­ment. Classes are con­ducted over seven months and stress the value of pro­fes­sional and per­sonal com­mit­ment to busi­ness, char­i­ta­ble and civic en­deav­ors.

“To­day we honor you as fu­ture lead­ers in com­mu­ni­ties and within our Real­tor or­ga­ni­za­tion,” 2016 Pres­i­dent Bon­nie Casper said.

2014 NAR Pres­i­dent Steve Brown ad­dressed the grad­u­ates and guests. Brown en­cour­aged MAR Lead­er­ship Academy grad­u­ates to get in­volved and to get their peers in­volved. Brown added, “…that the great­est sign of lead­er­ship that one can achieve is to gather a group of peo­ple to­gether to achieve one com­mon goal.”

Real­tors Prop­erty Re­course and the Real­tors Fed­eral Credit Union spon­sored the 2015-16 MAR Lead­er­ship Academy and were rec­og­nized for their sup­port.
