Spokesperson Issues Training
Created specifically for Florida Association of Realtors® (FAR) leaders at the local and state level, this intensive full-day training session teaches effective communication with both the public and the news media.
Taught at FAR headquarters in Orlando by a panel of media advisors, the course features videotape instant replays of participant’s presentations to strengthen communications skills as industry spokespersons.
What to expect: There are usually four participants in each session. If possible, FAR tries to tailor a couple of sessions to FAR officers and district vice presidents.
You’ll be asked to give a short presentation about yourself, which is then videotaped and critiqued, and then later participate in a news conference. At the end of the session you will gain confidence and knowledge about how to work effectively with the media.
Many participants say it’s the best learning session of any kind that they’ve been through. The most obvious candidates for this training are local board officers, association executives, Realtors Political Action Committee (RPAC) and Governmental Affairs chairpersons and local directors.
Each course runs from 8:30 a.m. until 4:15 p.m. at FAR headquarters in Orlando. FAR subsidizes the course. The cost is just $100 for local board/association presidents, presidents-elect, association executives and RPAC and Legislative Chairs. Cost for all others is $225.
