Membership Area Representation Committee (MARC)
MARC hosted three town hall meetings in April – in Ancaster, Burlington, and Grimsby – and plans to visit Dunnville and Burlington this fall.  MARC enjoyed strong support at  REALTOR® CONNECTIONS in March, thanks to the RAHB members who visited the MARC booth in the Member Services area.  MARC continued its review of various sponsorship opportunities within the RAHB market area, and recently supported the Caledonia Canada Day Celebrations, the Dunnville Rotary Golf Tournament and the Burlington Chamber of Commerce Small Business Week Breakfast and Economic Forecast.  Contact:  Rochelle Edwards
