On 10/22/11 the Virgin Islands Territorial Association of Realtors (VITAR) had our annual meeting aboard the Discovery, a glass bottom boat, as we sailed around St. John and some of the smaller islands in the Territory. It bought together members of the St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. John boards, and Gov. John deJongh.
Regional Vice President Cynthia Shelton, swore in our VITAR officers for 2012. I will move from the President of the local board of St. Thomas to the President-elect of VITAR in 2012.
Governor deJongh spoke on how the financial turmoil is effecting the region and the importance of promoting small businesses in the territory. In addition, his goals include keeping the police department properly staffed; making education a priority and not cutting back any further on teachers but moving them to the schools that most need them; and promoting the availability of good health care in the territory.
While Stephanie Hodge of Blue Sky Real Estate on St. Croix has completed her legislative interview and was officially appointed to the Real Estate Commission, the challenge continues to appoint a fully functioning Real Estate Commission. The commission will need to address the lack of a licensing testing center in the territory. The governor committed to a goal of having the latter issue addressed by January of 2012.
President B.J. Harris was officially awarded, Realtor of the Year, Among her many accomplishments this year are obtaining the Ira Gribins grant for the territory. This is a revolving, low interest fund to assist first time home buyers with closing costs. Two, buyers on St. John have already taken advantage of this assistance. Classes were made available to members on all three islands on agency issues and social media with more scheduled later this year and early next year. The idea for this wonderful meeting was also BJ's brain child.
The event was catered by Passion Fruit Chef. They served a selection of fruits, brie, wraps, pasta salad and wonderful cookies, accompanied by lemon grass iced tea, fruit punch.
Sponsors for the meeting included Theodor Tunick Insurance, Pyles Publishing, and ProSolar Investments. Thank you!
Most people are not familiar with how much Realtors work. It is normally very long days and pretty much seven days a week. I don't know many places that host their annual meetings aboard glass bottom boats in the Caribbean, it helps to ease the stress some. The perfect place to reflect on the year so far and anticipate the next. A perfect combination of business and pleasure.
