Sussex County Realtors Fulfill Educational Requirements While at Sea

wRealizing that education can occur anywhere and under any circumstances, nearly 50 members and friends of the Sussex County Association of Realtors (SCAOR) completed several of their Delaware Real Estate Commission (DREC) mandated educational requirements recently while on the high seas, as part of the Association’s first-ever “educational cruise.”

Held aboard Royal Caribbean International’s “Grandeur of the Seas,” the eight-day cruise departed the Port of Baltimore on Friday, Feb. 13. The trip was organized by SCAOR, paid for by participating members and featured a bevy of real-estate related offerings in several different areas.

Classes onboard were taught by Harry Wooding, who was chosen by members as SCAOR’s “Educator of the Year” in 2014.

“As an instructor, this was a wonderful opportunity for me to teach classes that I’ve taught many times before, but teach them in a completely different way,” says Wooding. “It was kind of like, as soon as the work was done, a vacation was right there waiting for us. We accomplished a great deal in terms of education during our days at sea, but we also had a lot of fun.”

The winter cruise included three days of coursework and four ports of call, including Port Canaveral and Key West in Florida, as well as Nassau and the private island of Coco Cay in the Bahamas.

Emerson Receives Coveted RCE Designation from National Realtors Group

The Sussex County Association of Realtors (SCAOR) is pleased to announce that Executive Assistant Angela Emerson has received her Realtor Association Certified Executive (RCE) designation from the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

The national Realtors’ trade association recognized Emerson for her achievement during it’s annual four-day Association Executive Institute in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, on Saturday, March 14.

“It took months of hard work and hitting the books, but I’m extremely proud that I was able to complete the course work and receive this coveted designation,” says Emerson, who lives near Georgetown and has been employed by SCAOR since 2012. “Now, I’m ready to put this newfound knowledge to work for the betterment of the association, it’s members and for everyone in Sussex County who looks to SCAOR for guidance in the real estate arena.”

Upon her recognition by NAR, Emerson became only the third real estate executive in the state of Delaware to become RCE certified, joining SCAOR Chief Executive Officer Ruth Briggs King and DAR Chief Executive Denise Tatman.

“A key component to life in the real estate business is continuing education, and we’re all obviously very proud of Angela for receiving her RCE designation,” says Fred Dean, SCAOR’s 2015 president. “This accomplishment truly exhibits her dedication to the association and to her chosen career. All of us on SCAOR’s board of directors congratulate her on this hard-earned accomplishment.”

The Realtor Association Certified Executive is the only professional designation designed specifically for Realtor association executives. It exemplifies goal-oriented association executives with drive, experience and commitment to professional growth, according to NAR’s Website.
