REASONS TO BECOME A BUSINESS PARTNER MEMBER OF THE BOARD
Communication: You will be able to keep abreast of our Association activities and items of concern to our membership via our newsletter”.
Membership Roster: The Board provides a membership roster that lists REALTORS and business partner members. Your company and individual name(s) will be listed. Membership rosters will be available on-line or at the DGL office.
Mailing Labels: For a nominal fee, business partner members can purchase DGL membership mailing labels. You can use the mailing labels to distribute material about you and your firms to our REALTOR members.
Socializing: Membership in the Association is not all work. We hold social events such as General Membership meetings, Installation Banquet, and other social events. Occasions such as these will allow you to network with our REALTOR members in a relaxed, fun, environment.
Committee Activities: You are invited to participate on Association Committees. The Professional Development, Government Affairs, and Community/Member Relations are just examples of committees that would welcome your talents.
Sponsorships: The Association has several ways Business Partners can sponsor Association events and programs. Sponsorships allow our Business Partner members to highlight themselves and their company. Such sponsorships include providing refreshments at education programs, Orientation, weekly marketing sessions and/or other events. If you would like information on becoming a “Featured” Business Partner please contact Dr. Eugene R Gibbins at (352) 493-9683.
Legislative Clout: Why be the only voice when restrictive legislation on the local, state, or national level will adversely affect your business. Many government regulations that inhibit your freedom to do business have the same impact on REALTORS. As a member of the REALTOR organization your voice will be heard and you will become part of the unified position that will help our collective interests.
Web Site: We will make available a category for "Business Partners" where you will have your logo and contact information so that you can be reached by our fellow REALTORS.
