Young Leaders Committee


Our mission is to attract, retain and elevate future leaders in the real estate industry by creating programs that encourage young professionals to participate and become actively engaged in the market and the CoreNet Global Chapter at large.

Main Committee Activities
The Young Leader events include three Young Leaders educational programs, fourLunch with a Leader programs, and one larger Membership Drive each year. Young Leaders can also apply to be a part of our mentorship program, which matches two seasoned real estate professionals with each Young Leader for a mentor-protégé relationship for one-year. Young Leaders are also eligible to apply for the Chapter’s Summit Scholarship program.
Need to Know

The Young Leaders meet on average eight times a year. The committee has monthly calls, with the subcommittees meeting on their own throughout the month, mostly via conference calls, as events/programs and other projects require.   

Why Join?

To ensure access to educational resources and networking opportunities with peers as well as senior professionals in order to support professional development and growth.    
Open Committee Positions

We are always looking for volunteers! Volunteers must be Young Leaders in order to serve on the committee. For more information about the Young Leaders and how you can get involved, please contact one of the co-Chairs.
