Please help us congratulate Karen Crowson, Crye-Leike REALTORS® Benton, as she was installed at the National Association of REALTORS® Inaugural Gala last week as Region 9 Vice President. The Regional Vice Presidents of the National Association of REALTORS® consist of 13 elected individuals who are appointed to oversee the work of the National Association in their respective region and act as the representative of the President in such matters as may be assigned to them. In addition to serving as the spokesperson for the Association in their respective region, the RVP identifies problems or opportunities within the region and assists wherever possible. It is the responsibility of the RVP to attend their regional State Conventions as well as the two annual meetings of the National Association and to chair the regional caucus meetings (held at both the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo and the REALTORS® Conference & Expo) to conduct regional business affairs and exchange information. Region 9 is comprised of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma. Congratulations Karen! We are honored to have you serving as our leadership!
