The Youth Leadership Network will be hosting four events in 2016.

These events will be hosted in a different location each time around the province and from there will be broadcast to your member board. Therefore you can take advantage of the high caliber of speakers to be offered as well as a networking event with other young, local REALTORS®.

BCREA hopes these events will give young REALTORS® a chance to become engaged in leadership and governance, to take advantage of mentorship and learning opportunities and to develop an interest in getting involved in ORE.

This page will be updated as more information becomes available, so be sure to check back regularly.


November 17 - Leadership Development: Better Leaders through Brain Science

Lori Benning

Join us from 3pm-4.30pm to experience the latest development's in Leadership training. Participants will perform a short Leadership Assessment and will receive a report on their specific leadership tendencies. Lori Benning's engaging presentation will then focus on how brain science helps us to understand leadership and the specific leadership attributes of the leaders and their followers. She will help us understand what the findings mean, how to use this information to become better leaders and how to better understand and be successful with other leaders in a variety of situations. Following the presentation, from 4.30pm-5pm, join your fellow young, local REALTORS® for canapés. For those in Nanaimo, please join us for dinner to meet some of the local Directors.
Lori, manager of a leadership development team in a complex organization, creates an environment for learning that fosters possibility and potential through use of meaningful content and questions.  The venue may be coaching, facilitation, or strategic development, the focus may be for individuals, relationships and/or organizations.  The outcome is the application of knowledge that creates more effective and powerful relationships, projects, and/or strategies. 

Have your own event idea?

BCREA would like to encourage young REALTORS® to organize Youth Leadership Network meet-ups in their respective communities to complement YLN planned programming. BCREA will provide financial support of up to $200 for meet-ups that further the goals of the YLN.

Some example meet-ups could be:
- Arrange a meeting with local young REALTORS® in a coffee shop to discuss an article on Leadership or Governance.
- Arrange an Ask Me Anything with a distinguished leader and a group of young REALTORS® in your area over wine and cheese.
- Arrange a networking event or community outreach initiative with a group of young REALTORS®
