Core 40 Leadership Academy


Thank you for your interest in the Southern Gateway Association of REALTORS' Core 40 Leadership Academy!  


The SGAR Core 40 Leadership Academy is a new and exciting professional development program!  We are looking for members to apply to join a small group of select peers who will work together throughout the year in a variety of ways.  We will meet in at least 5 sessions, working on one group project, learn about our own and each others' leadership styles, meet with state leadership, and meet with local legislators.  Those who complete the 2018 Academy will graduate at the 2019 Awards Banquet as FIRST class of Core 40 Graduates and be awarded dues paid for 2019.

Application deadline is 4pm on Friday, February 9, 2018.
