Fredericksburg Realtor® Claire Forcier-Rowe will be one of 17 class members to participate in the National Association of REALTORS® 2013 Leadership Academy program. The honor is even more prestigious since the class size has been taken from 27 to just 17.

From Otto Catrina, Chairman of the Leadership Academy Advisory Board, on the NLA blog:

What we look for are REALTORS® who are active on the local and state levels and have a passion for issues that are good for the industry. We want individuals who are well rounded, rather than someone who’s served on 100 different committees, because our goal is to focus on enhancing their leadership skills through collaboration.

And from VAR CEO Scott Brunner:

“I’m delighted and not a bit surprised that Claire Forcier-Rowe was selected as a member of NAR’s REALTOR® leadership development program for 2012-2013. She’s a respected Fredericksburg area broker and an emerging leader at the state level, serving this year for the first time on VAR’s Board of Directors. I know she’ll represent Virginia well in this national REALTOR® leadership program.”

Congratulations, Claire!
