I don’t cut corners.
Finding my way in this new position, I am also seeing that there is a lot of clean up to do. (Like there would be any time there is an executive turnover in an association). Clean up in the way of documentation, developing systems and checklists, and overall aligning our policies, procedures and bylaws with the way we do things. Some of that kind of stuff just takes time to get it in order to my style of leadership.
Everyone needs to see that REALTORS® are doing more.
One question I hear often, is what does the state association do? Our strongest member benefit is the advocacy that we provide. With over 10,000 Oklahoma REALTOR® members, we can surely show people how we do way more than just ok in the work we do. Watch and see what we will do.
Therefore, I strive to do more.
As plans are unfolding, I realize that our power and strength in numbers starts with communication. Communication to our local AEs in Oklahoma, and communication to our members. When I ran a local association called the Greater Springfield Board of REALTORS®, I closed each communication with #beGREATER. It was a plea to our members to always be greater than what the public expected of us. Here in Oklahoma (OK), we are not just OK, we are #morethanjustOK.
Go show them that we are more than just OK.
We are pretty darn awesome.
