The education schedule is being set for next year and your topics of interest are important to us—send them to Info@centralpascorealtors.org. Don’t miss the October Technology meeting.

Also, the Affiliates will be electing a Director to join us on the Board of Directors for the 2011-2012 year. Mark your calendar for the November Installation and Awards Banquet— November 10th at the Rusty Pelican. Details will be coming in the next week. Did you take the time to complete your award nominations? To wrap up our year, we will have our 1st Annual Chinese Gift Exchange. It will be full of surprises and fun for everyone. We are confident that we can relieve some of your holiday stress. Our Realtor® and Affiliate members are on the website ~ CentralPascoRealtors.com. Please review your information.

MEMBERS IN THE NEWS CONGRATULATIONS ~ CPAR President Lynn Mooney has been elected a Governor for the State of Florida Women’s Council of Realtors

************************************************************************************ CONGRATULATIONS ~ CPAR Member Russ Laggan has been appointed as CPAR Education Director. He has created a Monthly Market Update video that will keep us informed and know what’s REALLY going on. The first video is a bit long at 7 minutes but includes a bit of history with it. The “monthly market update” will usually be less than 2 minutes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6D_8Bqopwo   Also, Russ just achieved a personal goal of completing a Racing Ironman Triathlon in Atlanta with a time of 6:17:54. Russ says, “The Racing Ironman 70.3 has been a goal of mine for the last three years after doing my first sprint distance triathlon in '09 on a dare. It is the pinnacle of the triathlon sport and known to be one of the toughest races out there. The challenge is really being able to train and race in all three sports while balancing family and work.” Russ Laggan (left) and 2 fellow Realtor racers

This race included a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile hilly bike, and the brutal 13.1 mile run to finish off the race. The race distance is 70.3 miles total.

CPAR BOARD OF DIRECTORS’ MINUTES June, 2011 It was decided to move from monthly GMM to quarterly GMMs. The next GMM will be the 2nd Thursday of the last month of the quarter - September 8, 2011. Educational sessions can still be held monthly or as designated by committee. Educational sessions can be sponsored and not necessarily a luncheon or paid program. We can find a bigger room and light sodas/cookies for refreshments provided by a sponsor.

July, 2011 Lynn Mooney presented proposal from Florida Realtors and East and West Pasco to consolidate/merge the three boards into one board. East Pasco has already voted not to do this. Even if we merged, we would not have enough members for an NAR Director position. In addition, the dues would take a significant increase for CPAR. MOTION THAT CPAR NOT AGREE TO ANY MERGER BETWEEN THE PASCO BOARDS. PASSED

August, 2011 BOD voted to suspend the $115 New Application Fee until the end of 2011

GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING August, 2011 Bylaws Committee: Presented Bylaw change Article XI adds #2. 2. The President-elect may appoint an Affiliate Council Representative to serve on the incoming Board of Directors. This Affiliate Council Representative will serve in an ex-officio capacity as a non-voting member of the Board of Directors. MOTION PASSED CLICK ON ADS TO GO TO WEBSITES

AW AR DS

Each year the Central Pasco Association of REALTORS honors the Realtor of the Year, the Affiliate Company of the Year, the Bill Moorer Award recipient, and the Award of Excellence-Juanita Dennis Award. The ballot for each of these awards is listed above and we need your submissions in order to make this a successful Awards portion of the Installation Banquet on Thursday, November 10th, 6:30 pm at The Rusty Pelican, 2425 North Rocky Point Drive, Tampa, FL 33607.

REALTOR OF THE YEAR This award recognizes the Association member who exemplifies what it means to be a REALTOR.

They display unselfish teamwork as they volunteer their time and energy for our Board. BILL MOORER AWARD ~ Bill was a past president of the Land O'Lakes Board many years ago, who passed away in the 1980s.
