To my fellow and future CVBBA members,
On behalf of the 2021 CVBBA Board of Directors, it’s my pleasure and honor to lead our important organization in 2021. We have updated our 3-year strategic plan to identify 4 key areas of focus in 2021 including: Education, Business Development, Communications and our Annual Conference. In addition, there will also be special projects we will pursue.
In 2021, we have two very simple, but important, goals for the CVBBA.
- Grow membership to over 150 members
- Improve our structural integrity of the CVBBA association and its committee structure, while increasing our members who serve on committees
We will be building upon our success in our webinar series, new website and enhanced CVBBA benefits we rolled out in 2020 that now include IBBA membership. This has lowered the overall costs for our membership, something we are very proud of accomplishing. And yes, we all want to get back to in person events and are already planning our 2021 conference for September 2021 and other regional events.
Success for the CVBBA in 2021 will be more members, more engagement, more education, and more value through member benefits. Our board is listening to our membership and exploring options for new benefits and new systems including a special committee to explore a multi-listing system to better serve our membership base, forms for members to collaborate on deals together, among others.
Fortunately, I have a board who is equally ready to serve and volunteer their time to serve our association. Please join me thanking my fellow board members for serving:
- Joe Santora
- Jason Savedoff
- David Buboltz
- Rick Chess
- Mike Keen
- Tully Ryan
- Van Daughtry
- Rupesh Bharad
Additionally, we’re very fortunate to have Frank Chebalo serving as our Treasurer and Stacey Heller-McDermott serving as our Operations Manager. The work they do behind the scenes is critical to keep our organization financially informed and operational.
I’m extremely grateful for the 2020 board and especially Neal Issacs, who left us in a great position leading into the new year. Neal provided great leadership and guidance as the organization had to modify its plans with the onset of Covid-19. We have emerged stronger with increased membership due to Neal’s efforts. Great job Neal!
As always, I welcome your feedback. This is your association, so share your thoughts, and consider volunteering your time to one of our committees. We can always use your help to execute on our lofty goals.
