I started producing more of our videos for social sharing, marketing of education classes, events, etc. I have put together most of the videos on our Youtube page. I’m not an expert, but I know what goes into creating a video including initial concept, script writing, planning, shooting, and editing.
Benchmark is a quarterly magazine sent to our 7,200 members and affiliates. I manage, layout, edit and design the entire project. The magazine ranges in size from 24-36 pages.
Here are the latest examples from 2018 (Click to view magazine):
Project Jack is a grant program funded by the Realtor Foundation of Iowa. There were 200, $250 grants distributed across the state of Iowa. The program began in 2016 in honor of Jack Lindaman of the Quad Cities area. I managed the application process, as well as coordinating, collecting, and organizing photos and videos.

The DMAAR Safety Campaign is the first of its kind. The Des Moines Area Association of REALTORS created a safety program to bring awareness to the safety of Realtors as well as home buyers and sellers. The safety program emphasizes safety through pre-qualification, identification, and knowledge. I managed the design of the campaign.
The Iowa Association of REALTORS decided a New Member Series of videos that explained the role of the association for its members was needed. I managed the project by finding local agencies and requesting quotes. Once we decided which group to go with, I managed the editing of the scripts as well as the onsite video shoot and release to each of the 17 local boards. There are 8 videos in total.

I put in place a branding guide after we went through a logo redesign. We wanted to update the look and feel of our association and make everything cohesive.
As part of the day to day operations, I help with event planning and marketing, promoting our education department’s latest classes, work with partners and advertisers, put together our email campaigns, maintain the website and write content, work our social media pages and more.
