Notice of Special Meeting            
 
 

NEXT WEEK!

We are having a special combined Participants and Association Leadership breakfast meeting on Friday, January 27th, at 8:30 a.m.at RL Spokane at the Park (formerly Red Lion Inn at the Park), in the Skyline Ballroom.

Rob Curley, the new editor of The Spokesman-Review, will be our special guest speaker. He has a very special story to share about his journey to Spokane, and you won't want to miss this passionate presentation!

SAR leadership had the chance to meet with Rob over lunch back in December - he even gave us a personal tour of the Review Tower (photo above). We were so impressed with his vision for the future of our newspaper, and the future of our city, that we asked him to speak to a larger group of REALTORS® at this meeting.


Please RSVP to 509-326-9222 or sharon@spokanerealtor.com by Tuesday, January 24th. We really hope you can make it.
