board roles—by an average of 21 percent. We reached new members that we have never reached before through innovative events and education such as CE at Sea, and on the whole, our membership has grown by 8 percent since 2017. We established an awardwinning Global Network, which won NAR’s Platinum Award for global economic development initiatives, and we had a strong presence at the world’s largest property market—MIPIM. We expanded the Shared GAD program and successfully fought against steep homeowner’s insurance tax hikes, resulting in impressive consumer engagement in the campaign. We created a new conference—SPARK—specifically targeting women and providing high-caliber speakers with highlevel and timely content. We continued to improve the NC REALTORS® brand, as well as the brand of our non-profit entities, including NC REEF and the NC REALTORS® Housing Foundation, with new brand identities, websites, collateral and more. In many ways, we have had a stellar year, and you should all be proud of the association we have become in an effort to better serve you. It has been my honor and privilege to serve as your NC REALTORS® president over the past year in spite of the hardships we have all faced. For all of our members and staff who have selflessly given your time, talent and resources to personally support me, our leadership, the industry, our association, initiatives and mission, I thank you. Nothing we do would be possible without your talent, generosity and compassion. Because of you, we have risen together over the past year to be better as an association, to be more influential and to make a positive impression on the lives of the people we serve— including yours.
