At our Realtors Association of Maui we have a monthly Hot Topics meeting where we schedule various speakers to talk about something of interest to the Maui Realtors. Some of the past topics have been:
- off grid issues - water catchment and photo voltaic systems
- office organization
- the language of Real Estate
- mortgage meltdown - what's happening in the lending market
- new construction inspection
These are free events that are provided to help agents to network and learn. The speakers volunteer their time and an affiliate will sponsor some refreshments, such as fresh fruit and cold drinks, cookies and pastries. We try to videotape the class, so other agents will be encouraged to catch up if they weren't able to attend.
We've decided it's time to do a Hot Topic about blogging and social networking sites. Since we've never done this topic before I think there will be great interest. Be prepared to find a lot more Maui Realtors joining up on ActiveRain. Does your area offer blogging classes? Do you have to pay anything?
