Membership Policy and Board Jurisdiction Committee Chair

It has always been a goal of mine to increase the participation of REALTORS® in calls for action. When I was the President of the Iowa Association of REALTORS®, we were somewhat satisfied with a 15 percent return. My goal became to get a least a third of our members to participate. I worked hard to personally get the word out and saw participation grow to more than 36 percent. Whatever our leadership team needs in order to increase our participation, I am there for them. Our engagement means a lot—not just to us but to the homeowners across the country. As leaders, let’s get out there face-to-face with our members and let them know we care about them.
