Incumbent Randi Masters is joined by newcomers John Smith and Carol Crabb
October 9th, 2007 saw a good voter turnout for the annual general meeting and election of the Victoria Real Estate Board, held in the ballroom in the Delta Ocean Pointe Resort and Spa in Victoria. Candidates Tim Ayres, Randi Masters, Dave Hillmer, Blake Moreau, Carol Crabb, John Smith, Wendy Moreton, and Dennis Fimrite all gave convincing and entertaining speeches.
In the end, only three positions were available, and the membership bestowed the honours of Directorship on Randi Masters – elected to a second term, Carol Crabb, and John Smith. All are now tasked with helping guide the future direction of the Board.
We were also informed and entertained by President-Elect Tony Joe‘s speech on the direction for 2008. Focus will be on green real estate and how we can better serve the public by learning more about green building and sustainable development.
Such a large voter turnout for the election is further proof of an active membership of professionals who truly care about the direction of the Board and its impact on their business and their community. We are lucky to belong to such a fine, progressive organization, and are a model for boards across Canada.
On a personal note, I found the event to be a great learning experience, and appreciate all the support and compliments I received from the membership, and management at Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty, who supported my campaign for Director. I look forward to running again next year.
