Dear Members,

We hope your February is off to a great start, and you are enjoying the clear skies. Last month we welcomed and installed our new 2021 leadership team, including our new President Annie Foreman. Under her leadership, we are forging ahead with the theme Shift Happens, adapting to changes as they come our way and doing our best to support our members during these challenging times. We held our Installation ceremony on Zoom (see screenshot), a first for our Association! Although we couldn't be together in person, this didn't stop us from celebrating with more than 150 of you on screen. What a memorable event this was, and we are grateful to all who attended.

Take a look below for upcoming reminders and resources for the month ahead, including our weekly MLS Home Tour, Investors/Exchangers meetings, MLS Expert series, YGB monthly meeting, Know Your Forms, and more. Be sure to check out our Leadership Academy opportunity coming up, as well as our new G-VIP Program in honor of Gerard. This punch-card program encourages members to get involved, participate in classes and events, and become a 'Very Impressive Professional' for a chance to win some fun prizes.

Thank you for your continued patience and adaptability during this time, and we wish you a wonderful February!
