The 44th Annual AMPI Conference Held in Zacatecas

November 3, 2015

La Paz, BCS, Mexico - The annual conference of the Mexican Association of Real Estate Professionals (AMPI) is held in a different city each year. This year it was in Zacatecas, ZAC. (Last year in Tijuana, B.C.)

The "silver city" was founded on June 20, 1548 by silver prospector Juan de Tolosa along with Diego de Ibara, Cristobal de Onate and Baltasar Tamino. It has been dubbed the "Silver City" due to the many veins that were mined in the area, especially in the 19th Century.

AMPI members come together to hold their Annual General Meeting, attend social and education functions, elect new members of the National Advisory Board and decide on the location of the Conference for the following year.

This year saw a talented array of speakers including Chris Polychron, President of the National Association of RealtorsŪ. (NAR) In addition to Chris, Past President Steve Brown attended along with staff members Janet Branton and Bethsy Sachs.

Ten new members of the National Advisory Board were elected. They represent a cross section of the Republic.

Beatriz Gamboa Lago was elected AMPI's new Vice President. In 2017, she will become only the second female to hold the title of President in the 59 year history of the organization.

AMPI's 2016 Conference will be held in Puebla, Puebla.


John Glaab is a founding member of AMPI Los Cabos. A Certified International Property Specialist, he was named Realtor Member of the Year by NAR in 2012. For further information, contact John at John.Glaab(at)settlement-co.com.
