In 1981, a group of 25 industry specialists from the Greater Lancaster Board of Realtors came together to encourage interaction in the commercial and industrial real estate markets; to act as a liaison with the Board, MLS and Lancaster Chamber; and to review legislation. The original goals of uniting Realtors and encouraging education, integrity and networking still apply today.
Through monthly membership meetings, Council members are able to foster a working environment of mutual cooperation and to share important industry information. The C&I Council maintains its close working relationship and ties with the Lancaster County Association of Realtors.
The Council has grown to over 150 Realtor and affiliate members. Every four years, the Lancaster C&I Council is the host for a Regional Conference, and each December members support the Toys-For-Tots program through their generous donations.
