Musings of a Career Consultant

SoCal Texan in Bmore Leading Rock Stars

Back from the Capitol June 16, 2010

The 5th Annual HAF Golf Tournament was Tuesday and even though I missed it, I’m still a Housing Affordability Fund contributor. I heard that everyone had a good time and we raised a good amount of money!

Legislative Day was on Wednesday and at Region 16’s Legislative Luncheon we got a surprise visit from the Governor himself! Very exciting to see that entourage pull up! Then at the Capital Reception everyone had the opportunity to network with our Assemblymembers and Senators as well as REALTORS involved in RAF (with at least $197 contribution). What a great night!

Also, the YPN had a mixer at the Mix (seriously, not joking) and it was such a fun event. We had speakers from RAF and Tim Smith from Inman News. It was so nice to relax and mingle after a long day!

We (the Board of Directors) voted to approve the merging  of calREDD® with the Multi-Regional Multiple Listing Service Inc. (MRMLS). Since I’m already a MRMLS user, I love the idea, and since it was voted and approved, the majority of our Directors agree!

Also, we adopted a special purpose political assessment of $49 per member for 2011. This special assessment is for the California Real Estate Political Action Committee or, if the C.A.R. member chooses, to direct the funds to the C.A.R. general fund for non-candidate political purposes. Since I’m a $197 RAF contributor, this isn’t a huge change but for those REALTORS that haven’t been contributing, they now will. It’s exciting because this money will help us lobby for consumer rights (which is especially nice when we’re up against some strong opposition).

Also, we elected our 2011 President-Elect, LeFrancis Arnold. He’s ready to start work next year but I’m excited to see what he’ll do as President in 2012!

As always, feel free to contact me if you have any questions about anything.
