Your vote matters! Do your homework...

2023 ABoR and ACTRIS Boards of Directors Election

Our election for ABOR and ACTRIS Board of Directors is only 4 days away! I personally have another year on my current 2021-2023 term. This year there are 9 candidates nominated for five, three-year term positions (2023-2025) to be filled. Here are your candidates. 

This year’s member-wide election will take place September 19-21 online via ElectionBuddy. Results will be announced no later than September 22. 

Priorities Matter!

Below were, and still are, some of my priorities from my 2020 election. I believe these are nonpartisan and REALTOR® focused priorities that put our members and Central Texas homeowners front and center.

Our Board of Directors adheres to our strategic plan and goals. This will be updated for another 5 years next year!

With the purchase of Remine and the creation of a technology focused entity we are on the path of increasing control of our destiny!

I encourage each of you to view the interviews of each of the 9 candidates and make your own determination of the individuals you believe will best represent our members. Links to those interviews are below.

Now, Go Vote!

Karlyn Ellis
Anne Wheeler
