Quarter 4 - 2013 Newsletter 2014 President’s Message
What do you say to a new friend, “It’s so very nice to meet you”. That is how I am welcoming in 2014. I am embracing the New Year with endless possibilities for a prosperous and healthy journey. I see our SoCal CRS Chapter on the same path. With a fabulous leadership retreat lead by the wonderful Gregg Fujita, past CRS National President, we are sailing into a year of great education, camaraderie, networking and charity with our 2014 team. The theme for 2014 is, “There is no ‘I” in TEAM”. We ask that if you are not already a CRS, make this your year to become one. We welcome you into our SoCal CRS Chapter with open arms. Our doors are always open. Come on in! Semper Fi Fund is the charity that we will be supporting in 2014. It is one of the top tem highest-rated charities in America. Semper Fi Fund provides immediate financial support for the injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. We are looking forward to giving to those who have given so much in the name of freedom. We have some great sponsors lined up for 2014. Hallmark and Coast Cities Escrow is our long standing sponsor and will again be bringing their support and knowledge to our chapter. Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS® is a new sponsor. We are proud to have them onboard. We can always use more support. Please contact me if you have any ideas for additional SoCal CRS Sponsorship. Sell-a-bration, the premier CRS Convention will be here in Coronado January 31February 2, 2014. What a better way to kick off your involvement at the local and national level while being surrounded by the top 3% of REALTORS® nationwide. The educational sessions are second to none and the networking is fantastic. Hope to see you soon,
