UPDATE FROM SCAOR CEO - Patricia Anderson
Happy February to all of our valued members.  Punxsutawney Phil may have indicated six more weeks of winter but here at SCAOR we are springing into 
several initiatives to better your member experiences and ensure that value is being offered with every opportunity to communicate, engage, advocate for, and educate our members. 

We are more engaged with our local media sources utilizing advertising space within the DMV and JP Courts communicating the value of using a REALTOR and promoting the REALTOR brand.  We had a commercial run through WBOC in the 2nd quarter of 2020 promoting the same.  We have been actively advertising in our local papers about our education opportunities that include, but not limited to, Pre-Licensing and designation courses, and we have put forth several press releases highlighting our facility improvements that meet all CDC, State, and Federal pandemic guidelines, the installation of our 2021 BOD, ROTY, Alma Ashley, and Good Neighbor Award recipients, the awesome job of our Affiliates and their community contribution and volunteer time with Food Bank of DE, among several other events and initiatives.  

We are extremely excited about our current Member Value Proposition project and want to, again, thank all those that participated in our focus groups thus far as well as all those that have already responded to our survey that we sent out yesterday.  If you have not done so already please take 5 minutes to fill out the 5 question survey, which is completely confidential.  The
survey can be found here.

We are also excited to announce that Diane Disbrow from NAR will be joining SCAOR in a live virtual Townhall regarding the most recent changes to the Code of Ethics; why the changes were made, how they impact our members moving forward, especially as it relates to fair housing; practical applications, and examples of proper standard operation practices vs. poor operation practices, and then time for questions and answers.  Please save the date of February 22, 2021, from 3 pm - 5 pm, for this awesome event. Watch for an updated announcement with the link to register and participate. 

We will be highlighting various members throughout the year on our website, Facebook page, and newsletters for their outstanding contributions to the industry and/or their communities.  Each quarter we will be drawing one of the names from those highlighted for a door prize. If you know of any member going above and beyond within the industry and/or community please let us know!

We want to thank each and every one of our members for their commitment to your Association, the business, and those that you serve.  We look forward to the completion of our Member Value Proposition project and sharing the results with all of you in the very near future.  Don't forget to take 5 minutes to complete the survey and let us know how SCAOR can continue to serve you better today, tomorrow, and in the future.

We are excited to offer the Pricing Strategy Advisor Certification on February 23, 2021. See all of the details below.
