President’s Message

posted in: News | 0

NHCIBOR President, Mark DickeySummer is almost over and it is the time everyone gets back to making things happen!

Vacations are almost done and kids are headed back to school. We at NHCIBOR are already in full motion. The launch of our new website is moving along; our EDC links program is continuing to grow; and our Political Advocacy Committee is off and running to name a few.


We have seen some of the draft homepage and been shown the structure of the new website. The main focus is going to be on communications with our members which will incorporate a social media component. One of the areas of real strength is the political awareness component which will use the power of the organization to make this a great state.

EDC Links

NECPE (New England Commercial Property Exchange) is our largest member benefit. The NECPE Board is always looking at what we can do to improve the exposure of your listings. Here is an update from our EDC Link Chairperson, Brenda Litchfield:

“THE MORE EYES THE BETTER:  While we as REALTORS use and share the NECPE link and our individual listings widely, the Board wants to assist by further increasing the exposure of and traffic thru NECPE.  The NECPE Board chose this as a key focus for the year.  Our objective is to encourage the use of the NECPE link on as many websites as possible, including municipalities, economic development organizations, chambers of commerce, media outlets, and trade organizations. Thanks to John Jackman, Chris Norwood, and Mark Dickey who kicked off this initiative, the NECPE Board has been active in soliciting new links.  

While many factors drive website traffic, the annual user information shows that NECPE activity is growing.

How we help you:  If you are involved in an organization or non-profit that could benefit from the use or synergy of NECPE, there are several easy options to get the NECPE link directly onto a website.   Be in touch and we will provide support., or”

Political Advocacy

The new committee had its first meeting with 16 of our very strong members. Our intention is not only to look out for new political proposals that need to be supported or opposed, we intend to be a part of making change that ultimately will benefit our members. The group will continue to meet and progress, so please come join us at any point in time and lend your support. I am enthusiastic about the Political Advocacy Committee taking a pro-active approach is an exciting project.
