I n addition to being a print and digital information source for the real estate industry and its consumers, one of the most impor- tant roles RISMedia plays is that of host. Through several key industry events that we have been producing for nearly three decades, we are privileged to serve as a catalyst for bringing some of the industry's best minds together. Headlined by real estate leaders and innovators, our events take a strong educational bent and strive to dissect the industry's most pressing issues and oppor- tunities. However, while our Real Estate CEO Exchange and Power Broker events are built with education as the foundation, the most valuable component of these gather- ings is undoubtedly the networking. Ask just about any broker who attends RISMedia events and they'll likely tell you that the conversation they had with a broker from a different region during a luncheon or cocktail party made the entire trip worthwhile. As LeadingRE President & CEO Pam O'Connor puts it in this month's cover story (page 80), "Being a broker can be a lonely business. Coming together to mentor one another, solve problems and share ideas is invaluable." That's why RISMedia devotes the time and resources to continually bring the brokerage community world-class events with the right people in the right places. For ex- ample, as I write this, we are fnalizing the agenda for our Real Estate CEO Exchange at the Yale Club this Septem- ber 9th and 10th. We will soon be doing the same for our Power Broker Forum, Reception & Dinner being held in New Orleans this November. We know that the decision to spend time away from your business is a diffcult one to make and must yield ROI. That's why we chose to devote our cover story to the topic of networking. We talked to brokers across the country about the how, what, where, when and why of effective networking. For more information on RISMedia's upcoming events, please visit rismedia.com/events. We hope you make the most of all your networking opportunities in the months ahead and look forward to seeing you out there. Wishing you continued success, John E. Featherston CEO & Publisher Talk It Up Why Br Mor You Say You Want a Revolution? – Page 39 June14_RIS_Portal_Pages.indd 996 5/20/14 3:01 PM
