One of my goals for 2011 is to listen more. If you tuned into my latest podcast, you heard me say that I encourage you to e-mail me with thoughts and questions. That’s a very sincere request, and I encourage all of you who are reading this blog to take it to heart. You can reach me at email@example.com, and you can e-mail any of the officers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In a couple of weeks, we are going to take our open-door policy to a whole new level. At 3:00 p.m. eastern time on January 24th, we will be hosting our very first LIVE Leadership Town Hall. It’s open to all REALTORS, and registration is easy: http://www.realtor.org/about_nar/presidents_report/town_hall_01242011
The 24th just happens to be the day before President Obama’s State of the Union Address, so we thought this would be a good opportunity to share with you what our legislative priorities are and hear what you think. I hope all of you will join us on the 24th at 3:00 p.m. and make it a point to share your thoughts with us, via e-mail or right here on the blog.
Together, I am confident that we can address the challenges we are facing and seize a brand new day for real estate and our nation. – Ron Phipps, 2011 NAR President.
