29 KCRAR REALTORS® graduated Wednesday from the University
of Missouri Kansas City REALTOR® Leadership Academy, a seven-month program
where students studied advanced industry principles, leadership development and
business management practices.
These students worked on team-based assignments throughout
the term, and on Wednesday presented their capstone projects, which explored the
risks to the real estate industry found in the National Association of
REALTORS® DANGER Report and presented possible solutions.
“I’m so proud of these graduates for the work they put in at
the Academy,” KCRAR and Heartland MLS CEO Kipp Cooper said. “Not only are they
walking away with new knowledge and skills they can take to their businesses,
but they’re joining an amazing network of alumni of the Henry W. Bloch School
