We are pleased to announce the launch of the Global Perspectives Webinar Series. Led by subject matter experts, the webinars will give you a more detailed look at the topics covered in each issue of your Global Perspectives newsletter. This new CIPS designee benefit will provide you with a chance to dig deeper and learn how to apply Global Perspectives content to your own business. You’ll have the opportunity to ask our industry experts questions and you’ll learn from their experiences.
The webinars will take place during the month in between newsletters and recordings will also be available on the CIPS Personal Marketing Materials page on REALTOR.org. Dates/times for the webinars will be communicated with you via email and social media outlets.
