Dear Realtor® Association Member,
In August of this year, leadership of the Santa Rosa County Board of Realtors, Inc. and the Pensacola Association of Realtors, Inc. began discussions regarding the possibility of a merger of the two organizations. We are thrilled to announce that the Directors of both associations have unanimously approved the merger agreement that was crafted as a result of those discussions!
Both Boards of Directors sincerely believe that through this merger we will:
**provide a stronger, unified voice for real estate in the region
**gain financial strength by combining membership and assets
**provide better geographic accessibility to programs and services for members
**more accurately reflect the true market area currently served by members of both associations
**provide uniform availability of Ethics administration and enforcement, mediation and arbitration service
Please click here http://youtu.be/9aaI7R9Lplo to view a personal message from me regarding the proposed merger.
You can click here to read the FAQ we hope will provide answers to most of your questions about the proposed merger. You can also click here for a copy of the Merger Agreement approved by the Directors of both associations that will provide you additional details.
Realizing we couldn’t anticipate all of your questions, we’ve established a dedicated email address for you to send any questions not covered in the FAQ or Merger Agreement: email@example.com
PAR will also host an Open Forum for members next Wednesday, October 29 beginning at 8:30 a.m. at New World Landing for PAR leaders to respond to your questions personally.
While both boards’ directors have approved the merger, the members of both boards need to approve it as well. Consequently we’ve scheduled an online vote of the membership that will begin at 8 a.m. Wednesday, November 12 and conclude Friday, November 14 at 4 p.m.
The directors of both the Santa Rosa County Board and Pensacola Association of REALTORS believe that together we are stronger, and I hope once you’ve reviewed the materials, you will agree.
Lynn Peters, 2014 President
Pensacola Association of REALTORS, Inc.
