November Board Report

Meeting of the Board of Directors November 18, 2016

Finance Committee: The October Financial Report indicates the Corporation remains financially strong and stable, with membership increasing for the year. Members responded favorably to the two-month fee waiver. It was pointed out that BAREIS MLS® has given more than $2.7 million dollars to members in fee waivers over the last 15 years.

MLS Committee: The Board of Directors approved the following revisions to the MLS Database:

- Add “3D Showcase” as an option under Virtual Media Type.

- Direct the Rules Committee to review allowing “See attached documents” in driving directions.

- Add “Driving Directions” as an option under attached documents.

The Directors also considered two lockbox features available from SUPRA. They approved activation of the “Auto-Assign” feature in SUPRA, but asked staff to continue to research the “End of Showing Notification” feature in SUPRA.

Rapattoni Updates: The redesigned auto prospecting emails and the new interactive map search are receiving favorable responses from members.

Cloud CMA and Cloud Streams are available to members as a no cost member benefit (members who have prepaid subscriptions to these products will receive prorated refunds for their subscriptions). Training will be held throughout the primary areas.
