ACRE Leadership Council


The ACRE Leadership Council brings together top thinkers, high performers, innovators and leaders representing the Alabama real estate industry to discuss, promote, and enhance the Alabama Center for Real Estate’s mission. The Council is made up of real estate professionals representing every facet of commercial and residential real estate across Alabama.

Candidates for membership are considered throughout the year by the ACRE Advisory Board of Trustees. Members agree to serve a two-year term beginning at the time of their commitment. Subsequent terms are renewable. The Leadership Council has three stages: member, senior member & lifetime member. Membership dues are paid annually to support the sustainability of ACRE and allow the Center to continue to provide quality events for the benefit of real estate professionals statewide.

An annual roundtable meeting and regional lunches create a shared platform for networking and dynamic conversations that contribute to the benefit of council members.

The ACRE Leadership Council has two goals:
1. Provide insight and counsel on current market trends and future areas of concentration
2. Focus on long term growth and development of the Center
