As we begin 2018 I am very excited to serve as your state president. I want to update everyone on the latest that is happening at the national level.
As you are probably aware, we are in the process of re-branding CRS at both the national and state level. Due to the previous confusion of calling the designation CRS as well as the national council CRS they have renamed the council. Our CRS designation is not changing. We are still and will continue to be CRS designees. National however is changing its name from the Council of Residential Specialists to the Residential Real Estate Council (RRC) which has a new logo. Please realize that we rarely used the term Council of Residential Specialists in the past when communicating with clients, and I suspect the same will be true of the RRC. During this transition, there have been some major challenges with the CRS/RRC website. I want to reassure everyone that national is working hard to correct all the issues. If you are not receiving a response from national, please contact us and we will work on your behalf to get it resolved.
Allowances are being made by national due to the delays in having the website working properly.
- The deadline for completion of the required two maintenance units has been extended to Dec. 31, 2018.
- The deadline to renew your annual dues ($195) without a penalty has been extended to March 31, 2018.
- To thank everyone for your patience and loyalty, RRC is offering a $25 discount towards the purchase of a live webinar, recording, eLearning course or Legends video. Use coupon code THANKYOU when you check out. This offer expires Feb. 15th.
