Professional Standards Training

We are partnering with the Sheboygan County Board of REALTORS® for this interactive day of education.  The training delivers a variety of participatory exercises and role-plays to give hands-on experience to attendees who serve on grievance committees, professional standards hearing panels, and appeal and procedural review tribunals.

When an ethics complaint is made or an arbitrable dispute is filed with the board office, we rely on our members who have attended Professional Standards training to sit on a grievance committee or hearing panel.  The training is free with lunch provided.

Wednesday, June 6th                     8:30 am – 3:00 pm

Lunch provided                              St.  Peter Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall, 2104 Geele Ave, Sheboygan

Register with Diane by June 1st. Click to download a registration form.

Industry Panel Discussion

We would like to put together a panel discussion and invite 2-3 representatives from the different industries (lenders, title companies, inspectors, attorneys, appraisers, real estate agents etc.).  We will solicit questions, comments ahead of time and provide the questions to the panelists before the event.  The goal for the event is to help people understand why the different industries do things certain ways, help understanding with transaction etiquette and provide knowledge as to why things are done the way they are.  This will be good before getting into the busy summer season and hopefully create better communication.  After the discussion will put the questions into a FAQ for all the membership.

If you are interested in being a part of the panel or would like to submit questions, please reach out to one of the officers or directors of the board.

Still in early planning stages, looking at late April as a tentative time to hold this panel discussion.
