Despite the amount of snow we are battling, spring has sprung for the real estate market in Manitowoc County, I hope you are all finding success in the early start to what should be a very busy 2019. In the next couple of months, we would like to help ready our members for more production and less stress. Our April Membership Meeting will feature a panel of representatives from many of our Affiliate industries answering questions and talking taboo issues in a safe space. I highly encourage all members to prioritize attendance and submit topics and questions you would like addressed. Clearing the air and getting on the same page will help make transactions less stressful and easier to navigate.
April also brings us REALTOR® & Government Day in Madison. This is a free event and the board provides the transportation. This event has been one of my favorites since I joined the board. It gives Realtors the opportunity to really see the strengths in our numbers when we work toward common goals for our clients and our members. It is a chance to network with Realtors from around the state and meet our local representatives. I hope to see many of you on the 24th of April for a great day of government.
May 2nd brings us the first installment of live CE for the new biennium 2019/2020. This is a member benefit provided by the board and will keep you on track with your continuing education so you don’t have to panic later on. I speak from experience when I say the learning live is learning well.
May also brings Affiliate Night and our Board of Directors elections. This is not only a fun-filled night of information and prizes, but it determines who you choose to run our amazing organization. I hope you all consider running for a position and/or joining a committee. Out industry is going through changes nationally, statewide and locally. Being part of the Board of Directors not only guarantees your voice is heard, but by default you will be informed on upcoming changes. The Nomination Committee is currently reaching out for candidates, but feel free to contact me if you are interested. I am looking forward to seeing you all on May 9th.
Thank you for your continued participation in MCBR.
