Its Time to Pay Our Board Dues Again
Has it only been a year since we paid our annual board dues? Must be because I got a bill from the Board of Realtors that I belonged to last year.
This year, I decided to take a little time to investigate all of the local Board of Realtors before I just renew with the same one for another 12 months.
I found that the board I have belonged to for many year is actually the highest in price and has the least options for continuing education. Yes they include a ticket to the Realor Rally in March, but what if I don’t want to go to the Realtor Rally this year? I have already paid for the ticket so that is money I will never see again. I was never thrilled with the fact that they assumed that I would like to attend the Realtor Rally. This is something that is my choice – not theirs.
I will be changing boards this year to one of the largest boards in the Denver Metro Area which is about $50 less per year and they have an incredible education schedule with some of the best leaders in Colorado real estate teaching their sessions.
I’m not sure if I will be missed at my old board, but I am sure I will be welcomed at the new one.
I just have to wonder why the board doesn’t reach out to its members to find out what, we as Realtors, are looking for in a Board of Realtors. Maybe my expectations are different than the other members, but it sure would have been nice to have been asked somewhere along the way.
