When the calendar flipped to 2019 over five months ago, you were likely compelled to write a list of everything you wanted to accomplish this year. Now that it’s May, it’s probably safe to assume you’ve long since abandoned your dreams of finally learning to play the bass clarinet. That’s OK! You can now devote all the time you would have spent practicing for your Carnegie Hall showcase on getting involved with The Real Estate Council.
By shifting your focus to TREC, you’ll be taking your first steps into a larger world of DFW’s ever-growing commercial real estate industry. Our organization offers everything you need to propel your career and help improve our city.
So what can you do to truly make the most of your TREC membership? Start with these five things:
Attend an Event
This one seems pretty obvious, doesn’t it? In addition to our “Big Three” annual fundraisers, TREC offers a variety of quarterly luncheons, breakfasts, networking events, and site tours to educate you on key industry topics and help you meet, mix, and mingle with some of the biggest names in commercial real estate. Whether you’re interested in market forecasts, regional policy issues, technological innovations, or what’s shaping Dallas today, TREC has you covered.
Join a Committee
Maximize your membership by joining one of TREC’s committees. Spend time utilizing your talents and expertise on a TREC committee while simultaneously growing your network and giving back to your community and industry. Click here for a full list of TREC’s committee offerings.
Update Your Profile
Help us get to know you by updating your member profile. By updating your profile you not only ensure our membership directory stays up-to-date, but you also have the ability to select the committees, activities and leadership opportunities that appeal to you. Please be as thorough as you can in telling us about yourself!
Utilize Our Online Resources
TREC has several online resources to keep you informed on news and upcoming events. Earlier this year, we introduced our new calendar and site map to enhance our website’s accessibility and ensure you never miss an event or meeting. Be sure to flip through our Endless Opportunities brochure for full descriptions of all our events and programs throughout the year. You can also follow us on social media: We’re on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.
