  • Use all of the above as Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) to measure the success of the 2023 - 2024 Administration which should lead to membership retention, community impact, and fiscal efficiency

  • Become the #1 Chapter by the end of 2024

  • Restore the faith in each other and the organization by following the established Constitution and Bylaws, embarking collective efforts, and ensuring timely payment of dues and donations to the bottom-line budget.

  • Rebuild the Membership to meet and exceed previously established goals of 300 Members and expand our efforts to build the businesses of our Members as a means of "Value Added Membership."

  • Renew our commitment to the organization, one another, and ourselves to hold true to the mission of the organization - Democracy in Housing by renewing the Urban Core Neighborhoods through redevelopment ideas.

While for some the aforementioned may seem insurmountable, I believe  by employing the principles of UNITY, SELF-DETERMINATION, COLLECTIVE WORK & RESPONSIBILITY, COOPERATIVE ECONOMICS, PURPOSE, CREATIVITY, AND FAITH we will not only accomplish them, but also be show the way for Memphis-Shelby County residents to do the same, and change the trajectory of their own lives.


Further, we will achieve the glory of our founders and be the dream they envisioned. President McGowan set a course that we will build upon with updating the five (5) year Strategic Plan developed with her Preliminary Advisory Council, including 1) Establish an Endowment and 2) Secure a Headquarters for NAREB Memphis Realtist as highlighted above, to which I remined you will not happen without the membership's commitment to action, and public donations.

Therefore, it is my hope that you will continue your support of NAREB Memphis and complete the 2022 Membership Application Form. I look forward to working alongside you as the 26th President of the National Association of Real Estate Brokers, Memphis Chapter.

Please let me know how we can be of assistance to you. I can be reached directly at 901-502-5894 or
