SCAORCard – Issue #005 – From the CEO’s Desk

Welcome to 2017! As CEO, I would like to brief the membership on a few topics. First, most, if not all, SCAOR Committees met in January. Each Committee appears to have a busy year scheduled. With the looming State of Delaware budget deficit and future Sussex County Comprehensive Plan in the works and unknown public policy issues forthcoming, the Public Policy Committee will be advocating for property rights on behalf of REALTORS. The MLS Committee continues to discuss critical issues towards an accurate MLS of cooperation and compensation. The Affiliates are working towards a stronger relationship with REALTORS and the Young Professional Committee will be focusing on future technologies to enhance the member experience.

Other important topics relevant to members in 2017 include the desemination of information regarding Bright MLS (late 2017 conversion date), future finances (think Sentrilock costs and membership levels) and upcoming education classes. Association management staff must provide exceptional customer service, innovation, education and timely advocacy for the organization to remain influential and relevant. I know we can do this, and with your volunteer assistance and RPAC contributions, 2017 will be a great year!

For the brokers reading this, if you are interested in association staff visiting your office and sharing thoughts on a specific topic, please contact me at We are ready to serve you.
