What are REALTOR® Days?
St. Charles REALTORS® day is March 2nd. For more information contact Sarah@StCharlesRealtors.com.
REALTOR® Days are small group visits to the Capitol every Tuesday and Wednesday during the state legislative session from February through April. It’s an opportunity for REALTORS® and association leaders – along with their local leadership academies and governmental affairs committees – to come together and communicate with elected officials. Legislators hear directly from you, their constituents, about issues important to the real estate industry and how legislation will impact their district.
Congratulations St. Charles REALTOR® Melissa Boaz

NAR Mourns Past President R. Layne Morrill
R. Layne Morrill*, from Kimberling City, Missouri, was the 1998 president of the National Association of REALTORS®. Morrill, a REALTOR® since 1960, was president of Shepherd of the Hills, REALTORS®, in Kimberling City and Branson, Missouri.
NAR has debuted the new M1 member database system. M1 replaces the National REALTORS® Database System (NRDS), which was built more than 20 years ago.
“Our goal, first and foremost, has been to produce a powerful member information and engagement platform that could serve as the single source of truth for clean, accurate, and actionable member data. We believe the M1 system accomplishes that goal,” NAR CEO Bob Goldberg.
