Here ia a quick one for all you EJ IR's.  Lets say I want to work for EJ.  I start visiting different offices to discuss with IR's, find who the RL's are, and meet with RLs as well. 
Lets say I go to another state on travel and do the same.  Then I decide I want to open an EJ office in an entirely different area.  Which agent gets the referral credit for me as their incentive?
Next question is regarding the Goodnight Program.  Lets say  I want to make myself attractive as a Goodnight Candidate.  I want to open an office in the Rockies.  I live in the NE.  I have initiated conversations with IRs in NE, SE, and NW, but nobody in the Rockies.  Now I travel to the Rockies looking for that Goodnight Opportunity......will the guy in the rockies get the incentive when I get hired?
If the RL is the guy in the know for a given region, how big a region does he cover?
 
Thanks Bh.

Are there any EJ IR's out there that can share their experiences wrt this?  PM's would be great.  Thanks.

Depends on who you put down as the referral source.
This would be about #184 on my list of important things to worry about were I in your shoes.  The incentive to get credit for you just isn't that great, unless someone happens to need it to round out a trip.
The regional leader's geographical area will very, but usually it encompasses 40-50 brokers.  For some examples, Denver area has 2 regions and Dallas/Fort Worth has 6 or 7.  Both pull in some rural areas, but you get the idea.

Cowboy, that makes sense.  Thanks for the insight.  I will move that up to important thing #184 now.
