The leadership who attended the NAR meeting brought back much information, but are most happy to share good news about our local colleagues. We are so happy to share that Kevin Sears of Springfield MA has just been elected to 2023 First Vice President of the National Association of REALTORS® at the Board of Directors meeting (over 1,000 directors voted during this contested election). He will be President in 2025. You might recognize Kevin as he attends many of our events, both as a featured speaker and in support of our charitable efforts over the years. We are so proud!!! Kurt Thompson, Past President of the Massachusetts Association of REALTORS and our fearless state leader through hours of COVID zoom meetings also received an amazing appointment. Kurt was selected by the incoming NAR President Kenny Parcell to serve as 2023 NAR REALTOR® Party Member Involvement Liaison for the nation. Bravo Kurt. Finally, last but hardly least, we were so proud to witness two local REALTORS, Debbie Dwyer and Anne Meczywor, be admitted into the NAR hall of fame for lifetime contributions over $25,000 to the RPAC (REALTOR Political Advocacy Committee fund). Walking across the stage before hundreds of colleagues, these two shine bright! Thank you for their support of our advocacy efforts for so many years. Amazing, one and all.
