Greetings MOM BOR members! I had the chance to travel to Holland on Tuesday and meet with District 2 Congressman Bill Huizenga, representatives from NAR, Michigan Realtors and fellow industry leaders serving in West Michigan to receive an update on Congressional legislation that is in the process of debate in Washington. There are a few key issues that I encourage you to research and become informed about - National Flood Insurance Program that is due to expire and may lapse; Tax Reform items that are in jeopardy (1031 Exchanges, Mortgage Interest Deductions; Property Tax Deductions); and Michigan legislation effecting property rights.
Take a step today to become more involved in your association by any (or all of!) the following:
1) Join me in attending our MR Convention at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel September 27-29.
2) Email me directly for information on these issues and how to become more involved in our association.
3) Look for and RESPOND TO the Call to Action on August 22nd.
4) READ this month's volume of MICHIGAN REALTOR.
Enjoy the remainder of the summer!
RENEE MALBURG, President
