Set your plans now for CMLS

by Victor Lund on April 8, 2012

This year, the most exciting and fulfilling conference will again be the CMLS by the Council of MLS. It is a conference like no other, dedicated fully to excellence in providing Multiple Listing Services to real estate professionals. This year, the CMLS conference will be in one of America’s greatest cities – Boston! Our hostess for the event will be Kathy Condon and her team at MLS Property Information Network or MLSPIN. Men have hosted the conference the past couple of years and done a respectable job, but we all know that women rock in organizational skills. Thanks to Kathy, this year will be outstanding! (Trivia – who was the last female MLS executive to host CMLS and where is she now?) Here are a couple of details Conference Dates: September 26th-28 Location: Sheraton Boston Hotel Discount Registration Cut Off: $495 before June 15th, $695 after June 15th – book early. This conference will sell out as it always does – so whip out that credit card and reserve your spot today. I am not kidding. Sponsorship: Because of the venue, there are fewer booths this year. If you are a CMLS member, you get first crack at sponsorship opportunities. Exhibitors from last year get first right of refusal, followed by new sponsors. If you are a vendor, I suggest that you contact Melissa Lindberg at MLS PIN today – or by phone at 508-845-1011 x7121. Like registration, the sponsorships sell out quickly. If this is part of your marketing plan for 2012 – you better contact Melissa Lindberg today. She will not be able to accommodate you once it sells out – no matter who you are or how hard she tries. Space is limited. Note: There is about a 15% discount for sponsors who reserve and pay early – get on that. Sponsorships range from $3100 to $15,000. LPS MLS Group has already committed to the Title Sponsorship with a contribution of  $20,700 (Thanks LPS!). Here is a hint. Final hint: If you want to assure yourself a ticket to the conference or a sponsorship spot – you may want to start by joining CMLS ($300) today, or renewing your membership if you have not done that already.


We know you’ve been to your share of boring real estate conferences, filled with lackluster speakers tackling the same topics you’ve heard a dozen times before. Breakout sessions, if available, offer the same-old, same-old. That’s not what AFIRE is all about.  We’re just 9 weeks from the opening of our AFIRE conference, Courageous Leadership, in Scottsdale, Arizona…and we can’t wait! As a member of the AFIRE Advisory Board, I can’t wait to share all of the exciting news about this year’s event! AFIRE is a dynamic event created by women who are leaders in our industry. It’s been created for you – the amazing, awesome women who are passionate about real estate and the roles they play as a leaders. One of the things about AFIRE is the amazing roster of guests who have agreed to be speakers—these women definitely have the best and brightest minds in our industry. Marilyn Wilson, a featured speaker at AFIRE, and one of the WAV Group partners, is proud to have attended every AFIRE event to date. Marilyn Wilson says “I LOVE the topic for this year’s event – Courageous Leadership.  We are living in a very important time right now.  We are holding the fate of the real estate industry in our hands and frankly, I don’t think we’re doing as good a job with it as we could.  We need to find better ways to satisfy the needs of today’s homebuyers and sellers while finding better ways to improve the profitability of our organizations.  At the same time, we need to find ways to stay relevant and important to agents as well.  It’s not an easy task, but it’s critical that we start making some fundamental changes to our thinking and most importantly, our actions.” This conference is intended to help stir up the leadership skills and abilities to lead our industry and our organizations to the next level of success.  Attendees will come away with tangible new ways to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of their businesses, and most importantly, learn some new tools to demonstrate courageous leadership. At last year’s AFIRE, Marilyn, with Denise Lones and Ann Chiasson, did a fantastic panel called “Lay Down Our Swords.” Sherry Chris, the CEO of Better Homes and Gardens, said it was the best panel she had ever seen. This year, Denise, Ann, and Marilyn will be tackling the subject of courageous leadership […]
