This was a jam packed day with meetings at OAR and at OKCMAR. One of the things that OAR does extremely well is to follow all the Legislation at the Capitol. Needless to say they represent us very well, and I am glad it is not me who wades through all that legal stuff that may or may not become law. Official “pat on the back” to the OAR Staff and Committees.
In the afternoon, it was off to OKCMAR to discuss some of the issues we face with regards to square footage disclosure. Later, I attended the MLS R&D Task Force and was glad that they all were able to hear about the upcoming RPR program that NAR is offering. I hope everybody visits the RPR Blog and explores the site.
Both the MLS Board and OKCMAR will be making crucial decisions later in the year with regards to RPR, and we need much input as possible to assist in making the right moves.
Finally, I can’t say enough about the energy I have seen this year from so many committees. The input and drive from the committees helps to make our Association strong and viable. I just can’t emphasize enough the importance of the committees in driving the Board Strategic Plan. All organizations, OKCMAR, OAR, and NAR have their specific functions towards keeping Real Estate a pivotal force of our economy.
