Saturday Board of Directors Meeting

The REALTOR® Party Convention & Trade Expo wrapped up with the NAR Board of Directors Meeting. This is the body that reviews, debates, and ratifies the important actions that help to drive the National Association forward.

After a week of committee meetings, forums, society and council meetings, as well as, leadership team meetings, the Board meets to consider any action items that are brought forward by these bodies. The volunteer REALTOR® members who sit on these bodies give up a great deal of their time to try and make our association better for all members. I want to thank them all for their dedication and commitment to our industry and organized real estate.

If you have never been involved in your local, state, or national association, I strongly urge you to do so. It is a wonderfully satisfying and rewarding experience. I guarantee you will get much more out of the experience than you put into it.

I encourage everyone to go out and make a difference in you businesses, communities, and associations today.
