December Board of Directors Meeting

A lot taking place this month:
- John welcomed our 8 new Directors who start their two-year term in January:
Harriette Doggett; Laurie Donofrio; Asa Fleming; Tom Gongaware; Lewis Grubbs; Morty Jayson; Teresa Pitt and Julie Garrison.
- TMLS reported:
- They are renewing our contract with our current vendor, Marketlinx for four more years
- Two new features were added to the TEMPO sidebar. One allows you to type in the street address and zip code and it gives you the property's County, MLS area, sub-area, plus plots it's location on a map for reference.
- Admin Assistants will be billed $15 a month to their BIC for MLS access. This reflects the fees that MLS must pay our vendors when anyone accesses the system.

The REALTORS Foundation of the Triangle Report included:
- The Association Board elected 5 new members to the Foundation Board of Directors: Vince Bankoski; Autumne Bennett; Kelly Cobb; Sandy Ferguson and Eddie Speas.
- The Founation made it's first financial gifts to three local non-profits which included: The Sepherds Table Soup Kitchen; Inter-Faith Food Shuttle and the Triangle Real Estate and Construction Veteran's Group

Also, the Association shipped over 23 boxes of supplies to the USO in Bagdad last Friday. Thanks to the generosity of our members this is the second time our Association has been able to assist our men and women in uniform serving in Iraq. One of our own REALTOR members, Terry Benson, is managing the USO there and he opened the facility on July 4'th of this year. Terry will be returning to Raleigh in February after spending 18 months working for the USO in Iraq.

We also recognized John Wood for his very successful year as the President of our Association. John received a standing ovation from the Board of Directors for a job well done.
