Due to its overwhelming success, the Houston Association of REALTORS® will once again offer the Texas REALTORS® Leadership Program (TRLP). This nine-month program has been created specifically for those who wish to further themselves as a leader both personally and professionally.

The mission of the TRLP is to develop community and organizational leaders to become contributors to their community and their businesses and enrich their personal and professional lives. Participants will learn about their communication skills, how to lead a team and work within a team, understand multi-cultures, and how to grow their real estate business while learning about their community, government, and business partners.

The leadership program offers participants the opportunity to meet other motivated leaders and to share intensive learning experience that focuses on community issues and leadership skills. The purpose is to prepare the next generation of REALTORS® to meet future challenges. The program provides participants with lectures, seminars, guest speakers, group discussions and leadership exercises that address vital issues affecting REALTORS®.

To graduate from the leadership program, REALTORS® are expected to attend ALL full-day sessions.  (Dates are tentative and will be confirmed before program begins.)
