2020 RLI Georgia Chapter President’s Message

The Officers and the Board of Directors continue to build on passed educational and networking successes to make 2020 an exceptional year for our Georgia Chapter!

Thank You Past-President, Butch Armistead ALC, for your tremendous efforts and successes in 2019!

For 2020, the chapter’s board is focused on membership growth, events, and course offerings. We are planning a four state event with Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, and Georgia for this year. Also, the Georgia Chapter is planning on having a presence at the Georgia Association of Realtors Conference in Savanaha September 9 – 12, 2020.

Last year Butch Armistead taught a course on Transitional Land at the DeKalb Association of Realtors. In March, I will be teaching Land 101 at the Coweta Board of Realtors. In October, 2019 the Georgia Chapter of RLI had a booth at the SunBelt Ag Expo in Moultrie, GA with the expectation of providing GA RLI and its members exposure to the agricultural community.

As a reminder to our current members, the Georgia Chapter RLI no longer charges state dues. When you pay your national dues with the Realtors Land Institute, as a Georgia resident, by default, you are added to the GA Chapter RLI Roster as a GA Chapter Member.

Your 2019 Officers and Board of Directors:
President – Raborn Taylor III, ALC
VP – Mike Garrett, ALC
Treasurer – Sam Bowers, ALC
Secretary – Elena Stanfield

Director – Jesse ‘Butch’ Armistead, ALC
Director – Dan Crocker, ALC
Director – Mike Matre, ALC, RF

Chapter Administrator – FD Bell

We encourage you to take the opportunity in 2020 to be a part and become involved with an exceptional group of individuals. The chapter meetings are a great way to mingle with folks in your industry that have the same challenges in technology, marketing, management, educational requirements, etc., that we all have.
We would like to thank our Georgia Chapter members for their support. As a member, please feel free to post an article you’ve written, or one of your best land listings on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/georgiarli/

In closing, as your 2020 GA Chapter President, I look forward to working with our board and members to expand our GA Chapter RLI presence and expose to the greater Georgia Realtor community, the excellent land education and networking opportunities our Georgia Chapter has to offer. Please reach out to me with any ideas or concerns you have for the Georgia Chapter.
