Leadership training is integral to the AREAA Education Foundation’s mission. Since 2010, the foundation has sought to train the next generation of real estate professionals, and to cultivate those who are up-and-coming AAPI leaders. To this end, the foundation launched the Leadership Enhancement Program. While the regional trainings that followed the launch were successful, the program will see a return to its original purpose in 2018–to train those who seek to serve AREAA in a leadership position, and to be effective leaders not just in their businesses, but also the AAPI community.

At the end of the program, participants should:

– Develop a vision statement that would anchor their leadership, and to communicate this vision with clearly defined goals

– Create a plan to cultivate relationships within AREAA, chapter constituents, business partners, etc.

– List specific ways that they can be a mentor

– Experience a culture of accountability by establishing a mastermind group among participants, and to review their progress based on their vision plan
