Letter from 2021 President

Welcome and thank you for visiting the GREEA website!

My name is Yvonne Thomas, and it is an honor and a privilege to serve as your 2021 GREEA President.  I would first like to thank you, our membership for your ongoing support and commitment to the organization.  I am sincerely grateful to those who have served before me on the Board in any capacity.  Personally having served on the board for more than 8 years as an officer and committee chair, I know I have difficult shoes to fill and I promise to do my best to live up to the task. 

As we look to 2021, it is the Board’s goal to continue to provide opportunities for your professional growth through a diverse array of programs, including the Annual School Meeting and the Mid-Year Symposium, led by experts in our field.  These events are created to deliver value and substance for idea and experience sharing, while progressing the education experience of the Georgia Real Estate community and supporting the Georgia Real Estate Commission and Appraiser’s Board on their mission. 

On the bright side, the challenges faced in 2020 by COVID-19 have unveiled many benefits to our profession.  We had to expand our skills and pivot quickly in how education is delivered.  As your association, GREEA will continue to work hard to stay ahead of the curve.  The Georgia Instructor Training has already been updated to include virtual classroom expertise, thanks to your dedicated GIT Subcommittee. The Annual School meeting that closed out 2020 was loaded with ideas and methods to engage students in all settings, especially virtual.  The 2021 Annual REEA Conference will be held in Atlanta and it will provide even more tools to add to your teaching toolbox.

Your GREEA Board has a new email address:  GREEABoard@gmail.com. We encourage you to share your questions, comments, and feedback with us.  We need your help finding great examples to Spotlight, ideas to share, and the opportunity to shine a light on the accomplishments of our members.  Let us know if your email or mailing address changes, your name or company changes, you acquire new designations, or have new courses you would like to highlight.  And please don’t hesitate to let us know if you are compelled to join the board or would ever like to attend a board meeting.  We love hearing from you.

I truly look forward to serving our educators association in 2021 and hope to give each of you the value and resources that will help you excel in your professional endeavors.
