Message from the President: Charles Greer
As I reach the end of my term as President of LTAMS, I would like to recognize some recent highlights and accomplishments of our association.
Under the leadership of our Executive Director and Board, our association has established a strong online presence for our association through our website. Our regular and relevant news publications provide insight for our members in areas such as newly decided case law, upcoming regulatory changes, and all things affecting the real estate industry. Our website also highlights the many CLE, on-demand online educational classes, resources, and activities provided by our association. Lastly, it also provides Members the ability to post and view job opportunities directly on the site.
The LTAMS Annual Conference provides both a fun networking opportunity and an event where you can get all your CLE requirements satisfied for the year in one place. The 2022 Annual Conference is going to be at the Golden Nugget Resort and Casino in Biloxi, which is a great destination for our Membership to come together to learn more about our profession and socialize in one of the top destinations in our state. Thanks to our Executive Director, Conference Committee, Board, and our sponsors for making all this possible. We are excited to see many new members joining us for the Annual Conference!
Sandy Ray is the LTAMS lobbyist, and she has done a tremendous job establishing our association as the “go-to” when it comes to all things real estate in the legislature. She, in conjunction with our Legislative Committee, has enabled us to keep track of many bills passing through the legislature and even provide feedback and suggested changes. We anticipate that she will provide an integral role for our association going forward in our efforts to sponsor useful legislation for our profession under the direction of the Legislative Committee and Board of Directors.
As evidenced by the accomplishments since our inception, LTAMS is a thriving, indispensable association serving our members and profession. If these are our milestones in 2022, what will our triumphs be in 2023 and beyond? I want to thank the Board, past Presidents, committee chairs, sponsors, members, and especially our Executive Director, Ken Farmer, for their support and guidance. Our association continues to grow in exciting and innovative directions, and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to be a part of it.
Best wishes to President-Elect, Danny Crotwell, for an exciting year ahead!
