March 2,2009, Raleigh, NC ~ As 2009 rolled in many changes were in effect across the nation. Most notably in the real estate market. For some, the news presented problems too challenging to confront and handle. Not so for Louise Griffin, newly elected President of the Raleigh chapter of the Woman’s Council of Realtors®.

The Women’s Council of Realtors (WCR) is a community of real estate professionals whose mission is to help their members create business opportunities, develop skills for the future, and to achieve individual potential for success. As a network of successful REALTORS® the WCR believes in empowering women to exercise their potential as entrepreneurs and industry leaders. The Raleigh chapter is affiliated with the Raleigh Regional Association of Realtors and represents members in Wake, Durham, Orange and Johnston Counties.

"The best thing about the WCR is being able to help other real estate business women, and men, in our community to grow personally and professionally and enhance their reputation in their community. We strive to bring about success through the power of relationships, participation, and diversity. The ideas and successful actions I learn when networking at national and state conferences I’m able to bring back and share with our local members." commented Griffin.

As President of the Raleigh Chapter, Griffin takes the lead in program and speaker development. There is a full calendar of presentations featuring personal business and skills development, area knowledge, and cultural diversity; fundraising provides scholarships for members to attend professional development programs; and their largest event, "Realtors On Parade" enable members to network and learn about the diverse areas of the Triangle.
