Spring 2016 News

Every year for the past 10 years, the Minneapolis Area Association of REALTORS® has paid all expenses for three members to attend the National Association of REALTORS® Midyear Legislative Meetings held in Washington, D.C. The return on the association’s investment has been great, says Donnie Brown, community affairs manager at MAAR. Of the members awarded scholarships to cover attending the Legislative Meetings, 95 percent have gone on to serve on MAAR committees and more than a third on NAR committees, says Brown. “More than 75 percent have served on the MAAR board, 61 percent have served as committee chairs, four have served on the executive committee, two have served as MAAR president, and six of the recipients currently serve on the state’s committees and board.” Each year, the association reviews dozens of applications for its two scholarship programs, the Jean Leake Emerging Markets Scholarship and the Anne Brockhouse Future Leader Scholarship.
