Courage, Brains and Heart

Because it takes courage, brains and heart to practice real estate, the MAR Convention Committee thought it only fitting to have a "Wizard of Oz" theme this year. Entitled "There's No Place Like Home", the convention features GRI-105 (finance and technology), an "Emerald City" (black tie encouraged) REALTOR of the Year banquet, a "Wicked" dance party, popular national/state speakers (only now being invited), and more.

The 2008 MAR Convention is scheduled for October 7-9, 2008, at the Samoset Resort in Rockport. All convention hotel rooms and suites must be requested through MAR as part of registration, which opens in mid-June 2008.

The Maine Chapter of CRS will offer CRS 202, "Effective Buyer Sales Strategies" all day Monday-Tuesday for a separate registration fee.

In the meantime, watch out for those lions, and tigers, and bears ...

Some thoughts:

1.It would be great if it was mandated that all attendees must double up in rooms unless there is a medical reason. This would allow for more people to stay onsite. 2. Transportation for those who are unable to stay onsite ie. a shuttle service or regular taxi co, should be arranged in advance. 3.TIme Management: Allowing 1 agency represtative to register for all office staff wishing to attend is recommended as it is a more efficient way to register saving time and energy for all. Please consider allowing this preferred method...... Your response would be appreciated. Respectfully, Joanne Webber
