RENO – Top REALTORS from throughout Nevada are helping others while helping themselves improve their leadership skills as part of the LeadershipNVAR program run by the statewide Nevada Association of REALTORS (NVAR).
LeadershipNVAR’s Class of 2016 kicked off its year-long program by meeting Feb. 23-25 in Scottsdale, Arizona. The 15-member class of NVAR members from all parts of Nevada made the Hyatt House in Scottsdale its home for three days of activities to promote leadership and growth.
While attending courses and networking, the group of leading Nevada REALTORS volunteered at the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a local shelter. They also organized their year-long community service project, which will be to promote a fundraising effort aimed at benefitting Boys and Girls Clubs in the Silver State.
The 2016 LeadershipNVAR class includes Brenda Aucutt, Diana Barnes, Jaren Gilbert, Tara Gonzalez, Randi Hatada, Sheri Holthaus, Gail Krolick, Debbie Logan, Andrew Lunsford, Kaci Lynch, Michael Anthony Marrone, Doug McIntyre, Alex Mejia, Stephen Smith and Glen Wilde. They hail from Elko and Spring Creek to Gardnerville, and from Reno to Las Vegas.
“This is a phenomenal leadership group,” said Tiffany Banks, NVAR’s staff liaison to the program, following their meetings in Arizona. “They were open-minded and quick to engage. They want to learn and lead. There was just a really good flow to the program for all three days.”
Banks stressed the goal of the program NVAR established several years ago to train the next generation of leaders in the association and in the state is to get participants to learn about themselves so they can become better leaders in all facets of their lives. The emphasis is on teamwork, community and self-awareness.
