Candidates for the IVAR Board of Directors Prepare to Lead
FRANK LICEA, 2017 IVAR PRESIDENT
In June, IVAR members will have the opportunity to vote for the people they feel are best equipped to lead one of the best professional organizations operating at the local level in California. During the month of June, members will be able to cast their votes electronically to select directors and a President for 2019.
I’m privileged to serve with an outstanding group of REALTORS® give their time selflessly while debating how to best shape IVAR. In recent years, this team, CEO Mark Dowling and our outstanding staff has built a track record of achievement and professionalism that is second to none.
Thanks to the leadership of the board and the hard work of IVAR’s staff, we have an association that is remained fiscally strong while investing in our member outreach and customer service. We have created new, valuable tools for members such as our best-in-league housing data reports and recently unveiled broker tools.
We have an outstanding government affairs program that has, among many things, turned concerns about PACE programs from a local problem to a national debate. Our work has created reforms both within the programs and in the laws that govern them. These changes will hopefully result in changes that stop practices that have dealt real and unexpected damage to too many homeowners in our region. We recently analyzed the real impacts of FHA loan limit reductions and are using that information to work with policy makers about the need to restore higher loan limits for our region.
Our directors are the link that ensures our association caters to the needs and best interests of our members. We are all working brokers and agents who constantly seek ways to help build an IVAR that finds new and creative ways to make our members more successful.
So when you see the message that voting has begun, please take a moment to log on and help pick the team you feel is best suited to lead IVAR into the future. Then consider if you would like to be part of our leadership in the future. We invite you to join a committee, make your voice heard and join colleagues who have helped make IVAR the best in the business.
