Nominating Committee Reports
We were so lucky this year to have several candidates come forward at our Volunteer Meet and Greet, designed to help share opportunities in the board and MLS both in committees and in leadership. Many received committee and special workgroup appointments as well. Below you will find the Slate for both the Board of REALTORS and the MLS. Your ballot however, will only contain the votes that you are qualified to make.
