This year I attended the 2011 National Association of REALTORs convention in Anaheim, CA. It was held just last month, and I
was there for a period of 5 days. During the conference I attended valuable educational sessions to help me in my business as a Realtor, but also learned some unique insight into national trends and conditions with Real Estate in regards the ecomony.
Also as part of the convention, I took part in the expo center that is held at every convention, and was introduced to products and services from all over the world to better my job as a Realtor.
The city of Anaheim is the home of the Disneyland theme park, so there are some very nice convention centers, restaurants and hotels in the area.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the convention, and even won a brand new iPad 2 in the expo center in a contest! I hope to be able to attend next year when the convention moves to Orlando, Florida. Another Disney community, and another great convention center I hear.
Having served are President of the Battle Creek Area Association of Realtors in 2011, I was priviledged to be able to represent my local association at both the State and National levels the last two year. Attending the convention is part of the term of service. It has been a great adventure and one of the many milestones in my career as a local Realtor in Battle Creek, Michigan.
