Mission Statement: “The EXPO Committee serves in an advisory role to
assist in meeting the objectives of the California REALTOR® EXPO Business
Plan. Guidance and direction are provided in speaker selection,
program development, and exhibitor relations. The committee is a work
and information dissemination committee. It reports to the Executive
Committee and the Board of Directors.”
Our first meeting will focus on program development and seminar
content. Please begin to consider the challenges, concerns, and
thoughts which affect our members during their day-to-day activity.
The EXPO Committee should come up with at least 50 ideas for seminar
content for the EXPO. We’ll also begin selecting subcommittees to
better assist in the logistical elements of the EXPO. Please begin
thinking of seminar topics with an emphasis on the changing market.
We are inviting a few of our top-tiered EXPO Sponsors to set up a table in
the registration area. Please be sure to take the time to stop by and
say “Thank You”. They will set up on Wednesday and Thursday.
