RLI 2019 Leadership

The Realtors® Land Institute Announces 2019 National Leadership

September 18, 2018 (Chicago, Ill.) – The Realtors® Land Institute (RLI), a commercial affiliate of the National Association of Realtors®, proudly announces its 2019 leadership. Renee Harvey, ALC, the Owner/Broker of Century 21 Harvey Properties in Paris, TX, was elected by membership as their 2019 RLI National Vice President. Renee joins the 2019 RLI National Board of Directors as a part of their Executive Committee alongside 2019 President Jeramy Stephens, ALC, of Stuttgart, AR, with National Land Realty and 2019 President-Elect Kyle Hansen, ALC, from Nevada, IA, with Hertz Real Estate Services.

In this position, Renee will serve a four-year term on RLI’s Executive Committee making her the association’s 2021 RLI National President. She has an extensive record of service to RLI, serving most recently as Vice Chair of the 2018 Governmental Affairs Committee, Chair of the 2017 RLI Education Committee, and a member of the 2017 RLI Board of Directors. She also played a large role assisting with the organization’s rebrand from 2016-2017, serving on two member-based task forces. Prior to that she served as Chair of the RLI Governmental Affairs Committee in 2015 and as the RLI Texas Chapter President from 2010-2011.

Renee joins the RLI Executive Team at an integral time for the organization as they continue to push forward into the final year of their three-year strategic plan, which has an overall goal of strengthening RLI’s position as The Voice of Land. As a key pillar of that plan, land professionals can expect to see a full offering of newly updated Land University (LANDU) courses in 2019 as well as a brand new Recreational Land Real Estate course added to the program. Members of the organization will continue to see an increase in awareness among consumers of the RLI brand and will also benefit from the strengthening of RLI’s local chapters, both being major goals of the strategic plan.

In response, RLI’s CEO Aubrie Kobernus, MBA, RCE, released the following statement upon Renee’s election: “The RLI Board of Directors and I could not be more fortunate to have such a dedicated and knowledgeable addition joining us in our mission to further position RLI as The Voice of Land in the industry. We look forward to another success-filled year of bringing our members exceptional expertise, camaraderie, and resources to help them become the best in the business.”

The election also adds two At-Large Directors to the RLI Board. In an effort to give members a stronger voice into the direction of the organization, the addition of these elected seats were implemented in 2017. Out of the seven candidates running for an At-Large Director position, RLI is proud to announce the election of Bart Miller, ALC, of Mason & Morse Ranch Company in Glenwood Springs, CO, and David Hitchcock, ALC, of Coldwell Banker Commercial Saunders Real Estate, LLC, in Lakeland, FL, onto the 2019 RLI Board of Directors.
