Happy 90th Birthday to Bill Connor from your MLSA family! 
 
Bill was totally surprised at what he thought was a rotary meeting but turned out to be a birthday party in his honor. There was a roomful of family and friends there to help him celebrate 90 years young. We had a great turnout from our MLSA group as well to wish him a happy birthday!

Congratulations to the 2017 MLSA Board of Directors!
 
Many thanks to each of you that ran for the open Board of Directors positions.

Once the membership application and annual dues ($30/calendar year) have been submitted, the procedures are pretty simple.  


We are a networking group for individuals associated with the real estate industry, so attending the meetings is a vital part of membership.  We meet every Tuesday morning at Pellegrino’s Event Center in Tumwater.  The meeting begins at 8:05am, but the doors open at 7:30am for networking opportunities and for breakfast.  There is a $10 meeting fee each week that includes the breakfast buffet.  Meetings usually last until about 9am, and from there the group leaves to go on a tour of homes that are currently listed by members.  The tour is a great time for networking on a more individual basis as people usually carpool.  Tour can last up to 90 minutes, but is often much shorter depending on how many homes are on the tour for the day.


As for marketing your business during the meeting, there are a couple of ways to do it.  Every meeting, we have a portion of the meeting that we call “Wants & Needs”, when each member is given about 30 seconds to stand and let the group know of any wants and/or needs they have.  This is also the time when you introduce yourself to the group.  Members can also share flyers with the group (usually about 70 copies will do) and those can be distributed to the tables before the meeting begins.  We also have a segment that we call “3 Minutes of Fame”.  As a member, you can pay a $5 fee to be able to highlight your business in front of the group with a 3 minute presentation.

I hope this brief overview of the MLSA procedures is helpful.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  I’ll look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!


Right here on this page there is a link for a membership application that you can fill out and bring to the meeting to join.  You may also come to your first meeting for $10.00 for the breakfast/meeting where you can be a guest to see if this is a good fit for you.
