Welcome to another edition of the monthly SCAORcard. As your CEO, I have exciting news from the March BOD meeting. The BOD approved the following capital improvement projects this spring. First, the rear parking lot will be improved with new stone. Second, all lighting throughout the facility will be replaced with LED bulbs thus saving on annual electric bills. Third, external parking lights will be replaced with LED bulbs to reduce costs and improve lighting for evening events. Lastly, cracked tiles will be replaced inside the facility. As any facility manager understands, replacing and renovating in the short-term saves money in the long-term. Another project in the works is replacing the landscaping in front of the building. The existing plants and shrubs are overgrown and could be replaced with a new design.
The new lockboxes will be delivered in mid-July with a swap out designated week of July 24-28. Please reserve that week as a time when you will be asked to visit SCAOR and replace your current lockboxes. To summarize, the BOD approved purchasing 4,200 wireless lockboxes at the January BOD meeting. All association lockboxes will be replaced. Stay tuned for more information.
Lastly, I just returned from the 2017 Association Executives Institute in Denver, CO with Angela Emerson. We spent one day at a certified Professional Standards Administration class and two days attending numerous seminars / workshops on leadership, management, advocacy, technology, RPAC fundraising, customer service, community outreach, marketing and NAR policies. Overall, it was a great conference and we are looking forward to attending in 2018. Speaking of conferences, mid-year is around the corner in Washington D.C. For those not familiar with the legislative meetings in Washington D.C. from May 15-20 this is a time when REALTORS and leadership advance the real estate industry while attending meetings and a trade show. SCAOR leadership and management will be attending on your behalf. If you have time, drive over for the trade show on the 18th and 19th!
Thank you again for everything you do to promote home ownership throughout Sussex County. We have an active and vibrant association with over 1500 members and growing. If you ever need anything, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (302) 855-2300.
