Your signature and support is needed to inform the RRAR Board that a new budget amendment is urgent and crucial. The RRAR Board should consider amending the recently passed budget for the purpose of lowering dues. The recently passed budget has resulted in an unnecessary increase in dues and created a needless economic hardship for many individual agents. Travel expenses have been increased to an egregious level without providing evidence of a direct positive impact on individual members. The $10,000 surplus budgeted for 2013 also adds to the negative individual impact.
The new budgets require us to spend over 25% of Association income on travel expenses over the next 5 years, an unprecedented amount for any association. While education remains a vital component of our careers, the projected travel expenses for the AD and two directors have not been shown to provide the general membership with better services, more effective leadership, more productivity or more income.
PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION TO HELP CONVINCE THE RRAR BOARD TO PUT OUR BUDGET BACK ON THE TABLE FOR PROPER DISCUSSION AND WITH THE INDIVIDUAL MEMBERS' BEST INTEREST IN MIND. TOGETHER, WE CAN AMEND THE BUDGET AND REDUCE OUR COSTS AS AN ASSOCIATION AND FOR INDIVIDUAL AGENTS.
JUST FOLLOW THE SIGNATURE DIRECTIONS PROVIDED AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.
