Orlando REALTOR® | Sept/Oct 2015
By Sharon Voss
The September/October issue of Orlando REALTOR® magazine is always an important one. It’s delivered to all our members a few weeks prior to the annual ORRA Leadership Election, so this is MY chance to encourage everyone to vote! This is YOUR chance to have a say in the policies, programs, and future direction of ORRA. I’m confident that each Orlando REALTOR® would like a voice in ORRA, and hopeful that you will take the opportunity to place your vote.
We have a record number of candidates up for election to the ORRA 2016 Board of Directors. There are two candidates running for each officer position, and 12 candidates running for four open director seats (they are introduced on pages 9-10).
ORRA makes it super easy to learn about the background of the candidates and their positions on relevant issues. Candidate bios and video messages can be found on orlandorealtors.org; please take the time to read through and view each.
It’s easy to vote, too. Everything takes place online, and you have five days (September 21 – September 25) to log in through a special link and make your choice. Keep in mind that the voting system contains controls for ensuring the integrity of the election. Accordingly, you need to submit all of your final selections at one time.
For example, there are four director positions available. You can’t choose one, click “submit,” then go back later to choose another three. (You can, however, visit the site and review the candidates as many times as you would like; just don’t click “submit” or you will be locked out from that point forward.)
Instructions for voting and a special link to access the voting function are already posted on the ORRA website. We will even send out a dedicated election e-mail with info and link.
ORRA does everything on its end to ensure that you have the info and the access you need. But it will be up to you to make your voice heard and to cast your vote.
Not sure how to login in and vote? Call the ORRA Membership Department at 407.513.7282, Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm.
ORRA President Sharon Voss, Watson Realty Corp, is available at firstname.lastname@example.org.
