Complimentary New Alumni and Student Membership
Students graduating in May are asked to update their WREAA membership profiles with their new contact information in order to activate their complimentary alumni membership in the WREAA. Students who have not yet joined the WREAA, may still join and receive a complimentary membership by completing an application at the WREAA website. Note that after submitting the application, please bypass and disregard any payment information screen which might appear, as all student and recent graduates receive complimentary memberships. Contact Colleen Reske at the WREAA Office if any assistance is needed. There could not be a better time to connect with WREAA!

- Access to the WREAA Career Hub to search for positions
- The option to subscribe to receive notification of open positions as they are posted
- A personal profile in the WREAA’s online membership directory
- Access to the online alumni directory to connect with real estate alumni around the world
- The option to attach a resume to your profile for review by potential employers
- Opportunities to create a personal WREAA network by attending WREAA local events as well as the Biennial Wisconsin Real Estate Conference and Reunion in Madison on September 10-12, 2020
