2020 RLI Wyoming Chapter President’s Message
Earlier this year, the membership of the Wyoming Chapter of the Realtors Land institute elected me to be the next chapter president. I am humbled and honored, considering the caliber of the brokers and agents who elected me. The Realtors Land Institute, is one of the finest organizations I have had the pleasure to be involved with. The education, networking, and Accredited Land Consultant designation have played a significant part in my success as a ranch broker in Wyoming.
If you are a broker or agent specializing in land related real estate, RLI offers classes and education well beyond the courses required for a real estate license. Membership in RLI offers an instant nationwide network of the best land professionals in the country. The ALC designation sets you apart as the most experienced and knowledgeable in the industry. Getting the ALC is not easy. In Wyoming there are about 2800 licensed real estate agents. There are 13 who have achieved their ALC.
For 2020, the Wyoming Chapter of RLI is working on scheduling a series of continuing education classes approved for continuing education credit. These courses are specifically related to land transactions, and include recreation land, mediation, water rights, and tax class in relation to real estate. Along with the CE courses, we will have chapter meetings, where members have an opportunity to present their land listings, and potential buyers to some of the best brokers in the state.
We are also pleased to announce the launch of this new WYRLI website. As another added benefit to members, this site includes property search for Wyoming, and agent search, for the public.
As we continue to grow our state chapter, we are building strategic relationships with organization such as the Wyoming Stock Growers Land Trust, and getting involved in state legislation that relates to our industry.
I am excited about the year ahead and am grateful to our board of directors, executive director and all of our members who get involved. Ultimately, our goal is to help our members provide unmatched service to Buyers and Sellers of land in Wyoming.
Agents who are considering joining RLI are invited to join us at our next chapter meeting, and see how this great organization can help build a great career.
Ted Harvey, ALC
President, Wyoming Chapter of the Realtors Land Institute
