I’m pleased to be the next Advisory Board Chair for the International Business Council, at the Oregon Association of Realtors. I’ll be meeting next week with colleagues at OAR to form a 2011 Plan. As we all know, international commerce is crucial to our state’s economy – and real estate is a significant piece of that pie. Stay tuned!
About the International Business Council:
The Oregon Association of REALTORS® International Business Council works to expand awareness of opportunities in international real estate. Members learn how real estate practitioners around the world are developing strategies to succeed in a global economy, how cultural diversity can be a win-win for REALTORS® and clients, and how to provide added value to international clients in Oregon. The International Business Council increases understanding of worldwide investment opportunities in real estate through a combination of networking and education. Joining the International Business Council is the first step to adding a global scope to individual REALTOR® business plans.
The Oregon Association of REALTORS® is currently the ambassador association to the country of Vietnam, where new real estate licensing laws were recently adopted. Vietnam was granted unconditional normal trade relations (NTR) status by the United States through a Presidential Proclamation signed by President Bush on December 29, 2006. (Source, U.S. Dept. of State). In 2007, the Oregon Association of REALTORS® was named the International Ambassador Association of the Year by the National Association of REALTORS®.
