W hen you're leading an organization that's respon- sible for serving 1.3 million people, the odds are stacked against you. But that hasn't deterred the NAR leadership team from making some very bold moves this year—and suffering some slings and arrows in the pro- cess. But the reality is, change isn't easy. It's hard and messy, and involves trial and error. However, this team is up for the challenge. As Bob Goldberg says, "It may not be what we want to hear, but if members are listening and participating, and we have an opportunity to hear what they're saying…I say, bring it on." In this month's cover story (page 30), I hope you'll gain greater insight into the mission that's driving the NAR leader- ship team and the changes they're trying to effect—both for members and the consumers they serve. I also hope you'll get a better understanding of the real intent behind the changes. A lot of muckraking has gone on in the past several months as individuals and entities try to grab headlines to advance their own agendas. Hopefully this story helps set the record straight. And speaking of headlines (real headlines), we are so proud to share with you some of the unforgettable moments captured during our First Annual Real Estate Newsmaker Awards Reception & Dinner held in Washington, D.C., at the famed National Press Club (page 40). I love the tagline of the National Press Club—"The Place Where News Happens"— because it captures who we are at RISMedia, the essence of these new awards, and the award winners themselves. While we honored sev- en inaugural Newsmakers in May and inducted them into our Newsmakers Hall of Fame, we are now expanding the scope of the Real Estate Newsmaker Awards to recognize the hundreds of deserving individuals out there making headlines every day. To nominate a Real Estate Newsmaker, please visit rismedia. com/newsmaker-nomination. The deadline is August 1. We look forward to honoring the 2019 Real Estate News- makers in our December issue and at the National Press Club next May! Until then, wishing you continued success, John E. Featherston CEO & Publisher Honoring the Change-Makers POWERED by U Working Together RISMedia Awards Newsmakers in Real Estate – Special Credit: PlanOmatic
