ALC Application Process

Applicants should plan to attend both Open Houses. These happy hour events are an opportunity to meet members of the ALC Steering Committee in an informal setting before votes are cast for class selection.

The first Open House is open to anyone interested in learning more about the program. The ALC Steering Committee, board members of The Real Estate Council and The Real Estate Council Foundation, as well as members of the Leadership Alumni will be on hand to answer questions about the program.

The second Open House is open only to those who have submitted full applications.
