To my fellow Canadian REALTORS®
Go to the CREA homepage via REALTORLink and listen to Gary Morse, the new CREA president's inaugural speech. We are lucky to have this leader. He is also a Past President of my association, the Nova Scotia Association of REALTORS® and started our organization on the path of strategic thinking. We grew incredibly under his direction and by embracing his beliefs and attitudes as we went forward. We have had bumps and setbacks and forgotten on occasion as we get caught up in the topics of the day. We are fortunate that our new President, Robert Faulkner has the same forward thinking mind.
If you like what you hear become engaged and help the process. Read, offer opinions and suggestions and get involved. We are at the beginning of a turning point. We should not expect a few to do this on their own. They are our representative but the Association is one of members. We are colleagues and we can move forward to the benefit of all. The more feedback we provide the faster our organizations can meet our needs. Our leaders are our colleagues and as such face the same issues and suffer the same consequences to the decisions as we do. Let us join in and help look forward. We do it individually, why not help our local Boards, Provincial Associations and National Association by sharing our wisdom and experience.
