2020 RLI Kansas Chapter President’s Message

January 2020

I certainly hope business in your markets finished strong as we said goodbye to 2019.  I’m so proud to have served as your Chapter President in 2019 and look forward to an exciting and busy new year and the start of a new decade!

I hope you are planning to attend the National Land Conference in San Antonio, March 29 through April 1st.  If you’re a land professional, this conference is for you.  The conference offers camaraderie, networking, education, and an opportunity to visit with the sponsors and vendors to view the latest innovations and products.

As I mentioned in the December newsletter, the board has been hard at work planning the 2020 Chapter events.  The first one being the ‘Industrial Hemp – Impacts to Real Estate’ class that we will hold in Wichita, Kansas on Friday, April 17th, 2020!  Our instructor, Kirk Goble, ALC, is a nationally recognized educator from Colorado that has developed the curriculum that will be used for this class.  We will host this event at the REALTORS® of South Central Kansas office (170 W. Dewey in downtown Wichita).  The course comes with 4 hours of continuing education credit from the Kansas Real Estate Commission.  You can find out more information and register on the Chapter’s education page of this website.

Another opportunity to set yourself apart from others real estate brokers is by taking the courses offered through LandU.  These courses are geared toward land professionals and are available to be taken online, through state RLI Chapters or at the 2020 LANDU Education Week.   LandU Week will be held in Little Rock, AR, from May 27 through June 4 and the three required courses as well as three specialty courses will be held.  This gives attendees the opportunity to complete the full Education Requirement for the elite Accredited Land Consultant designation.   The full course schedule will be available in early spring.

Make 2020 the year to take your career to the next level by being involved with RLI and your Chapter.

May the start of this new decade be filled with peace, prosperity and love.  Best wishes to all in 2020!
