All NDAR Members Urged to Attend Grassroots Training for Measure 2
All NDAR Members are urged to attend one of two Grassroots Training sessions to understand how to help to ensure passage of Measure 2, the ballot measure sponsored by NDAR on the Nov. 4 ballot which adds a section to the ND Constitution to prohibit a property transfer tax.
A session will be held for members in the eastern half of the state in Fargo on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 from 10:00 a.m.-noon at the Hilton Garden Inn, 4351 17th Avenue South and for members in the western half of the state in Bismarck on Wednesday, August 6, 2014 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Best Western Ramkota Hotel, 800 South 3rd Street.
Nancy R. Willis, NDAR Government Affairs Director will provide a history and overview of the ballot measure and detail campaign activities being conducted to ensure the ballot measure passes; Odney staff will provide training on using the brochure, power point and talking points to advocate on behalf of the measure and Nick Bokone, REALTOR® Party, Cornerstone Solutions consultant, will describe effective grassroots campaigns and the steps attendees can take to ensure success.

We are counting on all of you to stop this tax. Please plan on attending this training to help our efforts be successful. http://ndrealtors.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/GRASSROOTS-TRAINING-FLYER.pdf
