Strategic Thinking Update

The Board of Directors was pleased to have Gene Millman, CEO of the Northern Nevada Regional MLS at the Board Meeting to provide an update on the CMLS Conference including Upstream. Progress is still being made in attempts to standardized software with vendors and consolidation of companies such as Black Knight and HomeSnap. The consolidation of companies and the continued need for standardization will provide a more effective platform for brokers to use multiple vendors to streamline their businesses. Gene also discussed the upcoming bylaw changes regarding “MLS of Choice” that will be discussed at NAR Annual Conference. This change will probably have little effect in our area due to our geographic nature.
