The SCAOR Card – Issue #019 – From the CEO’s Desk

First off, thank you for being a member of the Sussex County Association of REALTORS.  As the Association transitions to a new era without owning a MLS, I would like the members to revisit Article II of the Bylaws of the Association.  Article II – Objectives covers six sections that are very important to the future of the organization.  The first objective is to unite those engaged in real estate for the purpose of exerting a beneficial influence upon the profession and related interests.  The second objective is to promote and maintain high standards of conduct.  The third objective is to safeguard the interests of the profession.  The fourth objective is to further the interests of home and real property ownership.  The last two objectives are to partner with the State and National Associations and to designate for the benefit of the public individuals authorized to use the term REALTOR.  Every one of these objectives is still relevant to the members today.  Strong mediation services, ethical members, an iconic brand, defense of property rights and building consensus with the State and National association are all critical to the Association staying relevant and functional for the members of tomorrow. 
 
As you can see, there is no better time to revisit these objectives and think about where the Association is heading in the future.  On June 13 and 14 the Strategic Planning Committee will discuss and debate how the objectives of the Bylaws can influence a new Strategic Plan.  The current Plan has four objectives such as enhanced communications, a robust public policy program, exemplary education and technology for the members, and lastly develop and promote a compelling value proposition. 
 
 As CEO, I think the communications of the Association have been enhanced and continue to be timely from the weekly At-a-Glance and Tech Tip Tuesdays to the monthy SCAORcard.  Regarding education, I think SCAOR provides an exemplary in-house experience but could improve offerings and possibly look into internet classes.  Two areas that need improvement are communication about advocacy and what the Association is doing at the local level to benefit the members.   Even though we have an experienced Public Policy Committee, we could do a better job communicating what they do for the members.  Lastly, we could promote the value proposition better, no doubt.  The Association offers many other benefits such as a comprehensive lockbox program, an active Young Professionals Network (YPN) and partnerships with WCR on national speakers.  Professional growth and development of the members is critical for the organization.  The public expects that our members are fully trained, knowledgeable and service orientated.  The Association also sustains an active Affiliate roster with multiple networking events throughout the year. There is a lot happening at SCAOR, so attend a class, serve on a committee or stop by a mixer.
 
Speaking of getting involved, June 4-22 is the 2019 Board Recruitment.  The Nominating Committee has been selected and approved.  Interviews will be scheduled July 9-13 at SCAOR.  If you are interested, please apply to serve on the Board or wait until the fall for 2019 Committee recruitment.  We always need volunteers on various committees.
 
Other news includes the following:
  • June 1 SentriLock invoicing.  Deadline June 30.  Members $125 / Non-Members $150.
  • June 4 Bright MLS Conversion date
  • June 4-22 Board Recruitement
  • July 9-13 Recruitment Interviews
  • July 19 BOD meeting at 9 am
  • October 1 General Membership Meeting
Sincerely,
 
Merritt

The SCAOR Card – Issue #018 – From the CEO’s Desk

Dear SCAOR Members:
 
It is Bright MLS transition month.  By this time, you should have received an email from Bright MLS for second quarter MLS services.  Members should pay $75.  If you have not received an invoice, please email me at merritt@scaor.com.  For those who attended the first Bright MLS training on May 3, I hope it was helpful.  Bright MLS representatives will be at SCAOR on May 11, 21, 30 and 31 conducting a range of training workshops.  The web address to log into is BrightMLS.com/Training.  Hope to see you around the building sometime soon!  The official Bright Preview is May 14 with the Bright Conversion date of June 4.
 
Other news includes SentriLock billing to commence on June 1.  Be on the look out for an email to log into the SCAOR portal and pay between June 1 and June 30.  Late fees apply after June 30.  The fee is covers members from July 1 to June 30.  Home inspection, terminate inspection and appraisals now have access, if interested.  Pro-Spect is the first company signing up.  They should be using the lockbox program before July 4.
 
The Strategic Planning Committee will draft a new Strategic Plan on June 13 and 14.  The current Association Mission Statement is focused on education, ethics and advocacy.  I see technology, government affairs, education and communications are three areas we need to improve upon.  We are all looking forward to drafting a new vision for the Association from 2019-2021.
 
Future meetings of interest is the Finance Committee meeting on May 8,  Foundation mixer on May 8, Affiliate mixer on May 9, WCR/SCAOR education and mixer on May 10, NAR Legislative meetings from May 14-19, BOD meeting on May 24 and a REALTOR Safety class on June 14.  
 
As always, thank you for allowing me to serve you as Association Executive.
