Recent Board of Directors Actions at NC REALTORS® Legislative Meetings

Special Report

The NC REALTORS® Board of Directors met March 28 during NC REALTORS® Legislative Meetings in Raleigh and approved the following items:

2024-2026 Strategic Plan

During the meeting, the Board voted to approve the 2024-2026 Strategic Plan, developed by the Strategic Planning Committee.  The committee reviewed NC REALTORS® membership data, programs and services, financial services and digital metrics. They also considered current real estate trends and market developments. You may review the approved 2024-2026 Strategic Plan here. 

Please note: This plan will begin in 2024. In the meantime, we are still working to complete the 2021-2023 plan. Members can review the latest updates and success stories here.

Appraisal Section Bylaws Amendment

The Board also approved amendments to ARTICLE IV, Officers in the NC REALTORS® Appraisal Section Bylaws, allowing the Committee Chair, or Vice-Chair acting as the Committee Chair, to be entitled to mileage reimbursement from the NC REALTORS® Appraisal Section for presiding over committee meetings and/or reporting to the NC REALTORS® Board of Directors.

Treasurer’s Report

Treasurer Laurie Knudsen reported that NC REALTORS® balance sheet remains healthy. Thanks to continued increases in membership, total revenue is higher than year-to-date budgeted revenue. Most department expenses are lower than expected due to careful spending and appropriate oversight. We continue to be on track year-to-date.

Legislative Meetings

The Board meeting was conducted during the NC REALTORS® Legislative Meetings, March 27-29 in Raleigh. Over 700 attendees (including a record 324 first-time attendees) collaborated during business committee meetings at the beginning of the week. On Wednesday, March 29, NC REALTORS® rallied together for our Legislative Day at the General Assembly and discussed the following legislative priorities with elected officials:

  • North Carolina’s Housing Crisis
  • Short-Term Rental Regulations
  • Practical Applications of Real Estate Appraisal (PAREA) 

In next week’s REALTOR® Advocate newsletter, we will send a detailed report of the progress made during these visits. In the meantime, please review the current Legislative Priorities here.

The next Board of Directors meeting will take place during the Region 4 REALTORS® Conference, October 16-19 in Savannah, GA.
