Now that summer is fast upon us, it’s time for us to start considering the new leaders for next year. Do you have a vision for our board? Are there great projects that you would like to see us do? Maybe this is your time to consider running for a position on the board of directors. Volunteers are needed and the reward is tremendous! Maybe you are not ready to serve on the board, volunteer to serve on a committee which might better suit your needs.
Every June the call goes out requesting volunteers for the Nominating Committee, (the committee who proposes the upcoming leadership for all REALTOR® Members to vote on during the annual meeting) but you don’t have to wait until then. Contact your MBM Staff, Nicci Haynie and she’ll let us know that you are interested. Your board needs YOU!
