Message from President Courtney Johnson Rose
I am honored to have been elected at our 59th Annual State Conference to serve as the President of our great organization, the Texas Association of Real Estate Brokers. I stand on the shoulders of many of our historic leaders like Fred Blair, Vincent Wimbish, Carolyn Matthews, Jackie Cooper, Patricia Douglas and many more, whom I admire and respect.
Throughout our conference, the need for growth has been an underlying tone from our local board presidents, speakers and members. Just as every President before me has had to face various challenges and also chosen specific challenges to prioritize; I intend to tackle the needed expansion of our membership base around the State as my number one priority. My approach is for us to market our organization and tell our story in a way that will be captivating to new members while also creating a positive nurturing environment to welcome our new members into.
After prayer and deliberation, I have confirmed our theme for 2016 – 2017 as:
“Texas Realtists Impacting Our Communities through Education and Collaboration.”
If we work together and can embody this theme over the next 2 years, we will position TAREB to grow and our organization to continue for another 60 years.
Our board of directors and officers along with our local board Presidents will serve as our leadership team for TAREB. At our 59th Annual conference, we elected new officers and several new members to join the Board of Directors. I would like to congratulate the newly elected officers and board members:
I look forward to working with our leadership team and with each and every member of the Texas Association of Real Estate Brokers in the coming years to grow our membership and spread the Realtists story all over our great state. Please plan to attend our 69th Annual NAREB Conference in Long Beach, CA, August 12-16, 2016 and save the date for our 60th Annual State Convention, June 8-10, 2017, that will be held in the greater Houston area.
In the Realtists Spirit,
Courtney Johnson Rose
