Realtor leadership class focusing on homeless
The 17th Real Estate Academy of Leadership (REAL) class is busy with its philanthropic project. The 2011-12 class includes Amy Mocas and Carolyn Clow from Greenwood.
The 23-member group has focused on team building, personality types, governance, neighborhood development, quality of life issues, government and economic development.
The class has made a commitment to help the homeless in central Indiana. A recent session included a tour of the near eastside. Class members then discussed ways to become more involved.
