The SCAOR Card – Issue #014 – From the CEO’s Desk

2017 has been an exciting year for your Association! For those who did not attend the 2018 Installation on November 30, I would like to welcome Chris Lind as the 2018 SCAOR President. I would also like to acknowledge Susan Giove as President Elect, Sandi Bisgood as 1st Vice President and Chrissy Steele as 2nd Vice President. Kevin Thawley will remain as SCAOR Treasurer. Additionally, I would like to welcome three new members to the Board. Carol Materniak, George Thomasson and Judy Dean will all commence their new terms on January 1, 2018. I would also like to thank all the members who were selected to volunteer on a committee. The Association could not operate without your services, and we greatly appreciate your time and effort.

Other exciting news includes the transition to a new MLS. The scheduled conversion date of December 12 was cancelled and will be rescheduled very soon. Once I receive news of the new date, we will communicate to you right away. I encourage members to sign up for all training workshops and to contact Bright MLS representatives if you have questions. You are also advised to contact me at if you have specific questions or comments. I will do my best to answer your question or direct you to the appropriate person for assistance. Please be patient, as transitioning to a regional MLS has its short-term challenges.

Lastly, we would like to inform the members that Ben Kunde, MLS Admininstrator, has been hired by Bright MLS. Ben’s first day with Bright is December 4, so if you get a free moment wish him well. Andrew Mason and I will be fielding MLS emails and phone calls until the SCAOR officially converts to Bright MLS.

As a final note, I would like to thank Patricia, Andrew, Mary, and Kristy for their hard work serving the members these last few months. I am fortunate to work with such as talented and dedicated team. The future looks bright in 2018.

Happy Holidays!

  • Merritt Burke, CEO
