My name is Carl Burt; I am a Realtor with Abbitt Realty Company, current VPAR Board Member and a candidate for the 2015-2016 VPAR’s Board of Directors. I have served VPAR in the following areas: VPAR Board of Directors, Public Policy Committee member, Awards Committee Chair and Vice Chair and member, VPAR Charitable Foundation Board member and RPAC fundraising committee. I am a retired Law and Enforcement Executive with years of administration and management experience in business and civic boards.
I have actively participated in numerous VPAR functions including all official meetings, REALTOR Day on the Hill, training, reviewed and made changes to VPAR’s Awards Committee policy, attended and participated in the Awards Banquet, met with political leaders on matters relating to our real estate profession, regularly provided input into policy discussions at the VPAR Board level and I regularly serve as an advocate for the real estate profession and home ownership in my encounters with fellow professionals or the community. I am seeking a two year term on the 2015-2016 VPAR Board of Directors.
Serving as a VPAR Board member the past two years has afforded me an opportunity to actively engage in the inner workings of the complex world of managing a Professional Realtor Association. I have a personal understanding regarding how important insightful thought; deliberation and compromise are in addressing matters on the VPAR Board. If elected to return to the VPAR Board, I will bring prior VPAR Board experience and years of executive level leadership, budget, personnel and organizational skills to the VPAR Board. I wish to serve the VPAR Board because I think my professional background and experience would be helpful to the board. If elected to return to the VPAR Board, I will work to advance the ideals of our profession, while always being open to our membership and public for input that will improve our profession. I am a consensus builder that works well with other Realtors, public and political leaders.
