Letter from the President:

CREA President - Laura Leyser


Happy Summer!

This is the first summertime edition of NEWS2Me that is going out to the entire membership and I wanted to take this opportunity to leave you with a few thoughts as we head off on our summer activities.

First, thanks to everyone who takes the time to read our monthly newsletter and write us with feedback. Time and time again members have asked for more information about CREA and its work — this newsletter is one way we communicate directly with you. Don't hesitate to tell us what you want to hear about and what's on your mind. All comments are welcome and staff respond to all questions.

Second, summer is a season when REALTORS® are out in their communities like no other time of the year. Whether it's charity events, political events or community gatherings you all play a critical role in your town, city and province. With this in mind, please keep us up to speed on your good deeds and we will post your stories here. You can also take the opportunity to help victims of the floods in Calgary and southern Alberta here.

And if you see local politicians of any stripe over the next few weeks, please give them our best wishes for a safe and fun filled summer. No need to talk about work, lots of time to do that this fall and winter when CREA launches its Fall PAC efforts.

Most importantly, enjoy the season with friends and family. Every summer has a story. Make this one memorable.

Best wishes,

Laura Leyser
