4th Quarter Newsletter from the President

This year has really flown by! I have had a great time visiting the Networks around the state. The best part is getting to meet everyone and seeing how the different Networks promote their Strategic Partners and the small touches that make them different. Everyone has been very gracious and welcoming.

In Athens, they put small pieces of paper at the tables for attendees to use as conversation starters and they do separate drawings for Realtors and Partners.. At the Gwinnett Network, they have a power point welcoming new members by name and highlighting their Partners. Metro South has been posting their new members to Facebook using the member’s professional headshot and included some of their Partners in the event I attended. And DeKalb utilized a Model Home to showcase a pocket neighborhood in the heart of Atlanta.

In case you haven’t heard, this year’s Harriet Konter Scholarship award will be a bit different. The Executive committee voted to only have one winner going forward but to increase the Scholarship amount to $1500. This allows the winner to be in Washington to attend the Hill visits as well. We will also be giving the Network of the winner $250 to allow them extra funds to attend the Hill visit as well.

This year the fundraiser for the Scholarship is a 3 night stay at the Marriott Riverfront in Savannah, Georgia. The prize package includes dinner, gift cards, tours, adult beverages and much more. The tickets for the drawing are $20 each and we are only selling 400. Please see a Local Network President to purchase one. The drawing will be December 6th and you don’t have to be present to win.

As we prepare to go to Boston for the National Conference, I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has worked so hard to make this year a success. Each Network Leadership Team, the Governing Board Committee Chairs and members, the Executive Committee- this year would not have been possible without each one of you being committed to making Georgia rock! We have a new Large Network,Fayette and a new Mega Network, Savannah. Congratulations to both teams! Since December 31, 2018, our Realtor membership has grown 17%. that is incredible. We also have one Network that is 3 members away from doubling in size since that time, Atlanta. Way to go, Atlanta team.

This has been an awesome year for Georgia and I am so honored to be your President
