September 2017 CEO Report


DavidFreitagThe past month was busy with events and meetings that I will try to summarize in this report. On August 23rd, we held our 2017 RPAC Cruise and Legislative Reception. We had our best attendance and I glad to report we have collected over $15,000 from this year’s cruise. This year we increased our number of major donors by 2 and we have 8 NAR Major donors! We had 2 of our area State Senators, 3 State Representatives, and United States Congressman Jim Renacci in attendance. This year we also increased the number of attendees from other Boards. This event has gained a reputation as first class and we continue to get positive feedback.

 On September 6th, we held our 3rd General Membership meeting of the year, and we had Peg Ritenour, OAR Vice Legal Services as our speaker. She went over several important issues that are happening in our Industry at this time. She talked about the coming soon issues and that many of the surrounding MLS’s have formulated policy and rules to deal with is new marketing method. We also had our Director candidate Frank Corder speak to the members who were present. The floor was opened for nominations for the upcoming election and there were none.

The MLS committee held a meeting on the 13th of September to discuss the coming soon issue. MLS Director Connie Knerr presented the documents that had been compiled using information gathered from surrounding MLS’s. These had been reviewed by our Board Attorney. After a lengthy discussion, the committee voted to pass this on to the Directors for a vote. We have scheduled a video conference with Rapatonni during our September directors meeting to answer any questions on this new input field.

The Board held a Safety class at REALTOR hall on September 14, to help educate members. Administrative Assistant Leslie Bixby, worked with Perkins Police Chief Rob Parthemore and Sandusky Police Sargent Ron Snyder to develop this program. The class included video and lecture segments along with questions and comments from the attendees. The class was well received and there was a discussion on holding a class on self-defense in the future.

The Ohio/Kentucky REALTORS joint convention is being held in Cincinnati September 23/27. Our Board has a large contingent of members who have signed up and we will have great representation at the event.

I will be discussing with the Directors the bids I have received for landscaping and cosmetic repairs to our parking lot to remove the cement barriers.

We will be working on our Awards Banquet to be held October 10th at Schedel Gardens in Elmore.                              

Respectfully submitted,

David W Freitag RCE, CEO
