Important Message Regarding COVID-19

In response to the growing public health concern and school closings regarding the COVID-19 virus, the Lakes Area REALTORS® Association Board of Directors is taking the precautionary step to suspend all in-person meetings, appointments, classes, and events effective Monday, March 16 through Tuesday March 31, 2020. We will continue to monitor information from respected resources and review this policy regularly as new information becomes available. As soon as we can comfortably reschedule events, we will.

The office is temporarily closed. Our CEO is working remotely and able to handle all member services from outside the office.

Classes/events. All classes and events scheduled for March, 2020 are suspended, including the Bowling Mixer and General Membership Meeting/MLS Update. We will be working on a virtual option for New Member Orientation to be completed remotely and update all affected in the very near future.

At this time we are hoping our April Continuing Education courses will still be held at The Ridge Hotel.

We certainly hope that the risk posed by COVID-19 will pass soon. These decisions are intended to ensure we do not inadvertently expose our members, volunteers, partners or staff, nor contribute to the spread of the virus in our community. We realize parents and caregivers are facing extra challenges and want to be supportive of that. We appreciate your understanding and support, and we will continue to provide updates as things evolve, but not be alarmists or share unnecessary information that can easily be found elsewhere.

For additional information on COVID-19, please review the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (

https://www.cdc.gov/and NAR’s guidance for REALTORS® (https://www.nar.realtor/coronavirus-a-guide-for-realtors)

We sincerely hope all of our members remain calm, healthy and safe, as always. Please let us know if you have any concerns or require additional support we may be able to provide.
