Our second meeting, April 3rd, was supported by eleven corporate sponsors and we had 135 attendees.
LMGFC: What was the audience reception like?
Jim Pamplin: Given they came back for the 2nd meeting, the reception was great!
LMGFC: Any notable comments made by audience members about the format of the forums?
Jim Pamplin: Many Broward and Southern Palm Beach attendees were delighted to have our style of meeting much closer. The meeting format is: Networking from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. and then our Director Of Mentor Programs, Dave Dinkel, speaks on a new topic each month directed to improving real estate investor's skills and profits.
LMGFC: How will these recent events help DREIA grow?
Jim Pamplin: The Broward Investor Forum allows folks who cannot attend a Miami meeting to participate in our style of investor education. It provides more exposure for our ancillary educational programs such as Fearless Real Estate Investing and Change-Your-Life Mentoring.
LMGFC: A brief statement from you reflecting on the event and current expansion of DREIA?
Jim Pamplin: Broward Investor Forum is a natural expansion for DREIA that's been well received. We want to deliver information people say they need on a monthly basis.
