Columbia, SC – September 12, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — South Carolina REALTORS® will hold its annual meeting and conference, The UnConference, at the Hyatt Regency in Greenville South Carolina September 14-16, 2011. Approximately 320 REALTORS® from across the state are expected to attend the event.
The conference will include a political forum with GOP Chairman Chad Connelly, and Democrat Chairman Dick Harpootlian, in which Realtors® will have an opportunity to share their concerns about real estate legislation. “We’re grateful to our party leaders for taking the time to talk to us about issues affecting the real estate industry in South Carolina. Homeownership plays a vital role in our state’s economy and citizen’s quality of life,” said SCR’s 2011 President Rusty Garrett.
The conference will also include a keynote speech by REALTOR® author and educator, Joe Neigo; education sessions to enhance REALTOR® professionalism; a prestigious SCR awards ceremony; and a BarCamp style session. The BarCamp is a new meeting style in which the participants will also be the instructors, and come together to exchange ideas and knowledge through breakout brainstorming sessions. It is expected to be a beneficial experience for all attendees, as seasoned veterans share their valuable experiences with rookie tech-savvy REALTORS® in a meeting of the minds. The BarCamp also is what makes this SCR’s first UnConference.
“We are excited to bring REALTORS® from across the state together for SCR’s first BarCamp style annual meeting. The meeting shows REALTORS® are at the forefront of trying new ideas. All attendees have knowledge to give and knowledge to gain at the UnConference.
