President’s Message • and fast & easy access to contracts and forms and MARIS

Donna Zerega, 2013 President

Have You Seen It? Ever wish you could easily access tools and resources to help make your REALTOR® life smoother? If so, you need to visit our brand new, updated SLAR website at This new website has been redesigned after five months of thorough research into building a website that above all else, keeps the members’ needs in mind.

The sliding banner features upcoming events and the “Life Under The Arch” tab features events around town. The “Media Center” tab is the source of information about the Association including a leadership and staff directory, an archived e-newsletters, and REALTOR® Reports for easy reference. Under the “Partners” tab, you’ll find information about SLAR’s affiliate and affinity partners. Last but not least, the “Get Involved” tab helps you find the information you need to join a SLAR committee or the Young Professionals Network (YPN), and it also includes information about our Urban Affairs Forums. You can

even get the information you need to get involved at the state level as a Director or committee member of the Missouri Association of REALTORS®. Let your voice be heard! The new website is not the only thing that has changed at SLAR. Next time you’re visiting, take a look at the SLAR building lobby. As you enter, you can’t help but notice the TV screen to the left where there are photos and commentary about past SLAR events, presentations, and news. Both the new website and the notso-new lobby TV screen are part of our strategic plan’s communications initiative to reach out to you, our members, and get the word out.

At, you’ll find a myriad of information and tools, all at your fingertips. Some highlights include: • up-to-date market data • member benefits • the latest advocacy news
