The SEC Education Foundation in 2009

Our goal for 2009 is to maximize the benefits that the S.E.C Education Foundation brings to the industry, and to fulfill our mission statement.

The mission of the Education Foundation of the Society of Exchanges Counselors is to establish a fund to encourage and financially support educational programs related to real estate, particularly in the area of creative transactions and professionally structured equity marketing techniques.

We have an aggressive agenda this year, and to get started we have identified five functional areas on which to focus:

  1. Develop additional approved Education Foundation instructors and courses.
  2. Provide quality and diverse education in conjunction with S.E.C. Marketing Meetings.
  3. Assist other organizations in promoting and delivering Foundation-supported classes.
  4. Work with State, Regional, and Local groups to identify potential educational opportunities.
  5. Develop systems to provide critique, feedback, and evaluation.

A two-page program of action has been drafted and committee chairs have been recruited to organize and execute the work, and we look forward to accomplishing our goals.

We face many challenges in the real estate industry, and probably will for quite some time. The education provided by the approved instructors of the Ed Foundation will give you the tools you need to prosper in any economy. The Ed Foundation’s core courses — client counseling, formulas, equity marketing, and moderating — will all help you to find solutions for your clients and close transactions.

If you are interested in our courses and instructors, please visit for more information. If you would like to bring a course to your area, please contact the S.E.C. Office

Please help us with your comments and suggestions. They are crucial to our success, and we value them greatly!

  1. Hi Lance,

    Happy New Year!

    I’m still standing by with my course if you think it may have value. Please let me know if it is something that you think will work for the foundation.

    See you in Carefree!
