To my fellow and future CVBBA members,
On behalf of the 2022 CVBBA Board of Directors, it is my honor to lead this amazing organization in 2022. We will be updating our 3-year strategic plan for 2022 keeping focus on the 4 key areas of: Education, Business Development, Communications, and our Annual Conference. Additionally, our Business Development Committee is working on scheduling regional events throughout the Carolinas and Virginia. Save the dates will be sent shortly after the annual board meeting in January. Our project for 2022 will primarily revolve around building a strong foundation and structural integrity for a CVBBA MLS.
Our Goals for 2022 for the CVBBA are:
· Grow membership to 175+ members
· Set minimum standards/requirements for members to join the CVBBA
· Build the foundation for a CVBBA MLS
· Increase member participation on our committees
A successful 2022 for the CVBBA will be growth in both broker and affiliate membership, increased member participation on our committees, and successful turnouts to our regional events and annual conference.
I am humbled to have a board who is passionately ready to serve and volunteer their time to further advance our association. Please join me in thanking fellow board members:
- Rupesh Bharad
- Rick Chess
- Van Daughtry
- Hal Feder
- Mike Keen
- Tully Ryan
- “JT” Jim Tatem
- Dustin Zeher
We’re extremely fortunate to have Frank Chebalo serving as our Treasurer and Stacey Heller-McDermott serving as our Operations Manager. They both work tirelessly behind the scenes, which is critical to keep our organization financially informed and operational. Thank you, Frank and Stacey for all you do!
It was a pleasure serving on the 2021 board and I would like to personally thank all exiting board members, especially Adam Petricoff, who helped implement the CVBBA committee structure and 3-year strategic plan. Adam provided great dedication and vision for the association, and we ended 2021 with more membership than our association has ever seen, a phenomenal conference, and so much more due to his great leadership. Thank you, Adam!
The CVBBA is YOUR association so please volunteer on one of our committees. The CVBBA needs your help to grow our membership and execute our goals.
