2019 BDAR AGM Highlights
In May 2019, Barrie and District Association of REALTORS® (BDAR) decided to shake things up and try something new for the Annual General Meeting (AGM). Following the theme, It’s Better with BDAR, BDAR Members were invited to the new facility and were given new membership cards upon arrival. The BDAR AGM commenced as of 5:00 pm.
City of Barrie’s Honorable Mayor Jeff Lehman spoke to our BDAR Membership on the future of Barrie and how the community can come together to help those in need right here in the City of Barrie and the Greater Simcoe Region.
BDAR Member's participated in a silent auction at this year's AGM and raised $1,500 with all proceeds donated directly in support of Youth Haven - Barrie.
Lucy Gowers, Executive Director, of Youth Haven Barrie shared a few words of awareness and brought attention and thanks to the AGM's silent auction.
The BDAR AGM consisted of an overview of 2018, BDAR Membership Recognition for years of membership, a 2019 outlook and was filled with video highlights and input from the BDAR Membership Recognition recipients on topics including:
