GNAR Annual Meeting and Election

There was a great turnout and a delicious breakfast served last Thursday at the GNAR Annual Meeting at Sylvan Street in Salisbury.

The meeting kicked off with an informative presentation from President Marion Spark, followed by the election of the 2017 Board of Directors overseen by Secretary Erin Duggan.  After the GNAR business portion, the keynote Speaker Nobu Hata of NAR, presented an interesting and entertaining outlook on the changing roles of REALTORS and what the future may hold in technology.

Paul Yorkis, Massachusetts Association of REALTORS (MAR) 2017 President-elect, finished out the program – highlighting various topics including GNAR’s RPAC results (goals have been exceeded for both participation and contributions) as well as the importance of REALTOR membership, the MAR Charitable Foundation license plate initiative, and a call for committee and SPC (State Political Coordinators) participation.  More info will be sent regarding these opportunities to volunteer.

Congratulations to those GNAR members who will be volunteering on the Board of Directors for 2017 and beyond:
