Annual convention. This week, TBR members will be joining REALTORS® from across Florida at Florida REALTORS®’ annual convention and trade show. Your Board leadership and several TBR staff members will attend and report back on various state committee meetings, updates, and education sessions with the latest news on our state association and industry.
RPAC. TBR has a participation goal of 29% percent of members contributing at the “fair share” amount of at least $15 or more. We’re just 43 members shy of the goal. A $15 contribution (the cost of lunch!) is a valuable investment in—and commitment to—your profession.
Habitat. We’re off to a great start toward our Habitat goal—to build a family’s home in Spring 2014. Pledge forms are available online and at the TBR office; consider donating a portion from each closing or a one-time donation. Affiliate members can pledge as well based on quotes, jobs, etc. Stay tuned for a family “fun”-draiser this November 9th and a plant sale currently in the planning stages.
Back to school. In the “back to school” rush this month, don’t neglect your own professional development. August is NAR Designation Month, and you can register at the “early bird” rates for two CRS referral classes we’re hosting at TBR in September. If your license renews in September, we have CE classes at TBR and online CE, for your convenience. And get up to speed on technology that you can use in your business with introductory and intermediate classes in Excel and Twitter.
Marketing opportunity for TBR members. Our latest member benefit is the exclusive opportunity to market your listings on a new weekly television program offered by TBR, Impact Visual Media, and WCTV: the Real Estate Weekend Showcase.
CRMC Open House. Capital Regional Medical Center is hosting a special Open House for REALTORS® on August 20th, 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. They’ll give you an overview of services and details of their “New Mover’s” marketing campaign.
