Your Associates Council would love to have your involvement. We are not a closed group –all associates are welcome and encouraged to participate with your ideas, your energy, and discussion. The next big event is the Associates Council Silent Auction to be held during the January 19, 2019 state installation of officers and Oklahoma Housing Hall of Fame induction. This is a great event that I highly recommend you attend and is an outstanding venue for the silent auction. We need lots of items to bid on so please help us in that effort and support our educational scholarship program.

I have certainly appreciated the opportunity and privilege of serving as Chairman of the Associates Council. It’s been fun as well as challenging, but I believe more than ever that associates are the heart of the association. The men and women who have served on this council for years were an invaluable resource, and I appreciate you all so much. Finally, our new slate of Associates Council officers will be inducted with the other officers on July 19, 2019. Those elected Associates Council officers are:

• Chair -Connie Stokes, Coldwell Banker Team Stillwater

• Vice Chair -Lisa Rhodes, Stewart Title Company

• Secretary -Brianna Ross, Law Offices of Brianna J. Ross, PLLC

Blessings for 2019! ¦
