VLA-Class-of-2019By: Guest Author, Virginia REALTORS® Specialty Programs Education Manager, Cailin Richardson

Virginia REALTORS® is excited to announce the Virginia Leadership Academy (VLA) Class of 2019. The members of the 2019 class are about to go on an incredible journey, one which only a select group of REALTORS® have the fortune to embark on every-other year.

These 12 REALTORS® will have the opportunity to expand their personal and professional skills through a variety of educational and team building experiences. The impact of what they learn will be felt throughout the various levels of the REALTOR® association. Volunteerism is a key focus for this class; throughout the Commonwealth, the impact of Virginia REALTORS® volunteers is evident and this special group of people will be a part of the driving force in the future. In addition, they will have the opportunity to interact with leadership at Virginia REALTORS® and NAR.

Being a participant in a VLA class bonds REALTORS® and helps them to become more engaged with fellow members. While these individuals begin to make their mark in Virginia REALTORS®, we encourage you to consider if being a part of this esteemed group is something that would benefit you! Applications for the next class will open in 2021.

Please join us in welcoming the Virginia Leadership Academy (VLA) Class of 2019 AND their wonderful advisor— Sherry Bailey, VLA Alumni 2006.
