Just checked our RPAC total for 2018 is $19,541. Less than $500 from $20,000!. It is not too late to donate to RPAC. The deadline is December 1. Last Wednesday we gave out the RPAC Checks to issues and school levies in our community. We had a euthanistic group accepting the checks and all were very appreciative that we were helping them. Pictures were posted on Facebook and our website.
Dues billing for Ohio Realtors and NAR will be going out to your offices this week. The deadline without a late fee is Jan 1, 2019

The Philanthropic Committee is looking for Christmas Trees and Wreaths to be auction off at the Gala on December 4. The proceeds will benefit the Fuller Center. Please let me know if you wish to donate. We need about 15 for this event.
The 2019 Committees are looking for a good few members to be on committees. If you didn’t sign up at the Annual Meeting, please let me know if you would like to serve on the committee. We have 3 committees. Description and Chairperson are below. This is a great way to get involved, network and helps your Board to remain significant to the membership.
PROGRAM / AWARDS COMMITTEE (Diane Ericksen and Jill Downy)
This committee is responsible for the arrangement and conduct of regular Membership Meetings, annual award program and special events at meetings such as the Christmas Party. And, to ensure the recognition of any REALTOR® who has shown excellence to the profession, education achievements, or community involvement.
LEGISLATIVE/RPAC COMMITTEE (Ryan King and Brock Bowen)
To be knowledgeable on the Board’s focal point for legislation on local, state and national levels, and of the impact, such may have on the real estate industry; to establish a working relationship with elected officials. RPAC is an important and potent legislative tool, available to assure that elected officials carefully consider REALTOR® positions on legislative matters. This committee raises funds for the local, state and national RPAC to ensure legislators are elected who will enhance the industry or to educate on issues of importance to the industry.
PHILANTHROPIC COMMITTEE (Michele Hines)
The committee is to consider and decide, with the approval of the Board of Directors, projects within the community to support by funding and/or activities. The endeavors of the Committee shall raise funding for contributions.
Have a good week!
