Convention Wrap-up

2014 Fall Convention Pictures (Header)

Approximately 225 REALTORS® convened in Sunriver last week to learn, be inspired, honor fellow members, network, and gain new business tools at the annual OAR Convention. Highlights included the motivational opening and closing presentations by national REALTOR® speakers Steven David and Michael Maher, informative educational sessions, a sold out trade show and tech tips presentations by our fabulous vendors, and numerous live social networking opportunities.

This is not to mention the bestowing of REALTOR® of the Year honors on John Hoops (Windermere – Eugene), installing our first Irish president: Colin Mullane (Full Circle Real Estate - Ashland), raising over $5,500 for the HOME Foundation at the dessert auction…and generally having a great time!

Thank you to all who attended this year! We’ll let you know as soon as we have the dates and location reserved for next year so you can save-the-date for Convention 2015. VIEW MORE PICTURES >>
