It was a great REALTORS® Conference & Expo. My activities all went very well. I am delighted the Green designation is doing well, and the number of live courses have seen a major resurgence. Having some motivated instructors makes all the difference. The online course is wonderful, but REALTORS® still prefer doing it live!
The Environmental Summit has clarified the resolve of the NAR to get ahead of the many issues related to the environment that affect our members. It is a complex topic, but the members of the Summit after taking a long and deep look since last June see the need to develop more tools and information for members and take action where we can be effective.
I need to compliment President Steve Brown who instigated the Summit, but also had the REALTOR® of the Future PAG and so many other issues to attend to, not the least of which was the purchase of Move by Newscorp. Great job Steve! And the CEO of Newscorp sure did impress at the General Assembly!
I was quite honored at my last meeting I will chair for the Smart Growth Advisory Board. Not only did the program grow, we gave out more grant money than ever before, and provided more Land Use Assistance than in years, but the little things I added were well received. I will miss working with this group as chair and am honored to have had the opportunity.
