Barbara says...

I want to thank all the brave firefighters and first responders in Southern California during the horrible fires that we experienced. Thank goodness no lives were lost and even though many thousands of acres have burned it could have been much worse. I am very grateful to them.

We had a great time at the SDAR Expo with our CRS Booth. Thank you to all the volunteers who gave their time to promote our Southern California Chapter. 

A big shout out to our Education Chair Bess Kline and our AVPs who have put together a marvelous menu of classes throughout our region. Do not forget to sign up and bring a friend. There is a new series of classes, 3 to be exact, that go over Essentials. These are one day classes and are only being offered in limited areas and we are so very fortunate to be hosting one in San Diego. More information on these classes will be delivered as National CRS lets us in on the latest developments. 

Our first General Membership Meeting in Temecula at Europa Winery was a real success with Ken Bates of Military Homes Loans talking about VA loans and points that were new to many of the attendees. Our charity, Semper Fi, came and gave us some background on how the organization works and how our donations help so many deserving veterans and their families. We raised over $500 to be donated to Semper Fi. We had a great turnout and many new faces.

Our next General Membership Meeting will be August 15th at the West San Gabriel Association. We are honored to have our very own C.A.R. President, Kevin Brown, will come to speak to us for this event. Please bring a friend or two. We are continuing to grow our numbers at our meetings and hope that we will have at least 65-70 people in attendance. What better way to gain knowledge and network with others from Southern California. Are you aware that many referrals are no more than 75 miles from their origin? These are the people you need to connect with to enhance your referral business. 

I have just returned from Mid-Year meetings in Washington D.C. for National NAR/CRS and I am so proud of our chapter. We had eight representatives from our Southern California CRS Chapter. I do believe that is the largest contingency of all the states. Thank you Susie Hafer, Melanie McShane, Jim Ezell, Deborah Kniss, Marlene Bridges, Jeff Dowler and Mike Duncan for the many hours you give of your time and energy for National CRS and our local CRS Chapter. There were new insights into the next couple of years and the changes that will be made to make CRS better and better. I promise that you will all be kept in the loop as soon as we learn of these up and coming changes. Every time I attend these meetings I am constantly reminded of how giving and sharing the CRS family is. That is what makes us strong and the best of the best.

We are coming up to the time of year when we are searching for members who would like to serve at the leadership level. If you have an interest or know of someone that would be a great fit please contact me. We are looking to fill many positions. It is a very rewarding experience and we would love to see some new faces.

I have so enjoyed my year as President so far. It has been a year filled with learning, working with my TEAM and seeing the joy on fellow CRS faces when they are in a group together and especially when they are on the other side of a referral. REMEMBER the gift is in the GIVING of the referral and then it will be returned over and over to you.

Hope to see you soon.

Barbara
