Key Member Benefits

Key Member Benefits

Why Should REALTORS® Participate in YPN?

  • Invitations to Local and State YPN Events: YPN events are a fun way for members to meet other real estate professionals from around the state, build a referral network, and learn about new and free resources from the National Association of REALTORS®.
  • Have Your Own Sounding Board: Young professionals have unique challenges in real estate yet they also face challenges shared by practitioners of all ages. By belonging to a network of peers who face similar issues, they can bounce ideas off of one another and provide support to each other.
  • Get Involved: Many people who are new to the industry want to get involved with their local and state associations, but simply don't know where to start or they may find it too intimidating. YPN encourages exploring leadership opportunities across the board.
  • Stay Abreast of Industry Happenings: A lively blog from NAR, a web site solely dedicated to NCYPN, informative newsletters and networking events keep members in the loop on hot issues facing the real estate industry.

Network Guidelines

Network Guidelines


 

1. Connected to a Local or State REALTOR® Association. The network should be operated by a local or state REALTOR® association. You may opt to have the network cover a region, in which several local REALTOR® associations may band together to form one network in your area.

2. Professionalism. As a network of young professionals within the REALTOR® Association, it's important to set high standards for your network's events and activities. Maintain professionalism in all of your communications—whether in person or via e-mail—and keep the focus of events on how to help members succeed in business.

3. Free To Members. It is recommended that there be no additional fees or dues for members to join local and state networks. You might decide to cover event costs by charging for events or garnering sponsor support

4. No Age Restrictions. While most members of YPN are under 40, there can be no age restriction whatsoever. Any REALTOR® who thinks he or she would benefit from membership is welcome to join.

5. Cross-Promotion of YPN Events. NCYPN & NAR will gladly promote your events on its Web site and Facebook page, and, in turn, we hope you will promote NCYPN & NAR's YPN events through your regular communications with your YPN members.

6. Responsible Use of Member E-Mail Addresses, Contact Info. NC REALTORS® can provide your association with the contact information of members in NCYPN's database who are in your area. In return, we hope you will encourage your members to register with NCYPN as well. NCYPN & NC REALTORS® uphold a strict policy of not selling member contact information to any third party, including event sponsors.

7. Be Active. Networks should hold events on a regular basis, whether it's semiannually, monthly, or even weekly. We recommend that you plan at least two events a year (such as a networking event, meetings, education sessions, Webinars, etc.)

9. Further the YPN Mission. Your network should aim to further the mission of YPN, engaging members through their association, the real estate industry, with peers, and in their communities.

10. Be Mindful of Other Networks (especially when naming your chapter). Your network is automatically part of the North Carolina Young Professionals Network and its jurisdiction, which is governed by the NC Association of REALTORS®. Upon receiving your Network Application NCYPN will make sure a network doesn't already exist in your market area. NCYPN encourages ALL local associations to be mindful of a neighboring association that has already formed a network; your association might decide to team up with a neighboring association to form one stronger Regional YPN in your community. The intent is networking and cooperation, not competition!
