2018 CCIAOR and CCIMLS Board of Directors Elections

Petition and Election Information

*Candidate Petitions Due September 8th*

If you have ever said, I want more input into what the Association and/or MLS is doing – this is your chance to have that input. It is the Board of Directors that sets the strategy, values and direction of the Association and MLS.

We’re looking for dynamic, strategic thinkers who are passionate about real estate and strive to serve the real estate industry, the Association and the Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard community.

The CCIAOR Board of Directors has set the date for annual meeting for Wednesday, November 8th, 2017. Per the bylaws of the CCIAOR and the CCIAOR MLS, this serves as official notification of the annual meeting and election announcement.

The following positions are available for elections to the 2018 CCIAOR Board of Directors and the 2018 CCIAOR MLS Board of Directors.  Please note candidates may run for the CCIAOR Board, the CCIMLS Board or BOTH.
