QUARTERLY DUES
The extended deadline for payment of Q2 Dues is next Monday, June 15. Members who pay annually may disregard this message.

CALL TO ACTION
Small businesses comprise over 48% of the Colorado economy, and small businesses are hurting as Covid-19 shelter-in-place restrictions forced many to halt operations for more than two months.

Now, legislation being introduced today will threaten Colorado’s economic recovery by targeting harmful policy at those same small businesses - including REALTORS® - Coloradans all rallied to support just weeks ago.

GARY BAUER
Gary BauerIt is with great sadness we share news of Gary Bauer’s passing. Gary diligently served our profession in countless roles through the Jefferson County Association of REALTORS® and then Denver Metro Association of REALTORS®. Gary was a key figure at the state and national level in many capacities, most notably serving as CAR Treasurer from 2017 through 2018 and as a NAR Director for many years. Not only was Gary generous with his time, he had a passion for supporting and investing in RPAC and the CAR Foundation. In 2016, he joined the RPAC Hall of Fame reaching the $75,000 level.

We send our condolences and best wishes to Gary’s wife Janet and their family and thank them for sharing Gary with us. He will be greatly missed.

Through highly-interactive role playing activities, you will develop and practice scripts that can prepare you to successfully negotiate with all parties in a transaction, including clients, other agents, and service providers.
