All of our IAHSP® Chapters have great ideas, energizing meetings, and creative projects going on all the time. Yet you or your IAHSP® Chapter may not be aware of what other IAHSP® Chapters are doing around the country. Well, that’s about to change!
It gives me great joy to share with you that in 2010 we will introduce monthly IAHSP® Chapter Board Leadership calls. By participating you will learn what others are doing to recruit and retain members, hear ideas for yearly projects, listen to suggestions for meetings, and of course find out what other members doing to create growth. I promise you will learn a lot! Hearing and learning from other IAHSP® Chapter Board Leaders will certainly benefit each IAHSP® Chapter, each of us and all of us in so many, many great ways.
The monthly IAHSP® Chapter Board Leadership calls will take place on the 2nd Monday of each month at 4 p.m. west coast time for one hour. We will begin on February 8, 2010, and a schedule for coming months is provided below. Mark your calendar NOW!
Each month I will introduce the one-hour call. Then I will give a quick update of the latest new things for ASP®’s, IAHSP® and Stagedhomes.com which you can share with your IAHSP® Chapter locally and all of our great ASP® members. Have paper and pencil by your side and make sure to be on the call from the start or you will miss important updates, which are too important to miss for sure as so many new things develop and happen each month.
Next I will introduce the leader of each call. I will lead the first call in February and from March on one of our great International Board of Directors will lead the call, one leader at a time, and they will then interview the Board Member Leader of one of our featured IAHSP® Chapters for this year 2010.
Here’s why I have asked Atlanta to start off with me in February:
This past year in October I went to be with the Atlanta Chapter as I was asked to do a keynote address in their now famous IAHSP® Realtor® panel that they do each year. It is so amazing and wonderful what IAHSP® Atlanta is doing and this can be done in any of our cities and through our other great IAHSP® Chapters such as your chapter. Atlanta leaders will share how they put it together, what it took, how they paid for it, how they selected the panel and much, much more. Do not miss this call. Each IAHSP® Chapter should be doing a Realtor® panel each year as it will most certainly build your ASP® Business for all of our great ASP® IAHSP® members.
Below is a schedule so you will be able to look forward to each months call and which great IAHSP® chapter will be interviewed.

I will send you the number and code for each call one week in advance. Keep it and save it so you can be on the call right before 4 p.m. west coast time each 2nd Monday of the month.
I am so very excited to bring this idea to you and to put together the calls for you and for us all. You each have so much talent to share and through calls we can learn more about all the many great things and successes that some of our IAHSP® Chapters are doing and next year we will interview more great IAHSP® Chapters as we learn, share and benefit together from our truly great IAHSP® Association. We are great because of EACH of you and ALL of you!
By working together we continue to achieve and accomplish great things. Come ready to learn, be ready to take notes, and listen to the many great ideas you will hear from/for our/your great local IAHSP® Chapters this year.
