New Board of Directors Selected for The Lakelands Association of REALTORS®
November 24, 2020
Huntsville, ON – The Lakelands Association of Realtors® members have selected their board of directors for 2020-21. Their representatives are: Chuck Murney (Parry Sound), Catharine Inniss (Port Carling), D’Arcy Hunt (Orillia), Lindsay Elizabeth Elder (Minden), Heather Scott (Port Carling), Andrew Hodgson (Haliburton), Anastasia Langiano (Orillia), and Bonnie Looby (Magnetawan).
The association represents over 800 Realtors® in Parry Sound, Muskoka, Haliburton, and Orillia. Board representatives are elected by the association’s members. The board makes a variety of decisions on behalf of members, from political action priorities, to how to distribute funds for charitable causes, and professional development opportunities.
Langiano and Looby are new to the board this year. Murney is this year’s president, taking the helm after Inniss served in 2019-20. Murney has been involved in board activities for most of his career, including a term as president of the former Parry Sound Real and Area Association of Realtors® and three years on The Lakelands Association of Realtors® board. “As we step towards a new year and the end of a crazy 2020, our members have proven their professionalism and ability to adapt,” he says. “Our members have been working through the stresses of Covid-19 and the business lockdowns that have come with it, all while maintaining the highest standards in client service. It’s been remarkable and I’m proud to represent them.” This year, while stressful, was also one of the busiest on record in terms of demand for real estate in the Lakelands regions.
Looking ahead to the coming year, Murney is confident that The Lakelands Association of Realtors® Board of Directors and all of its members will be better equipped than ever to rise to any potential challenges that 2021 may bring. “Our local Realtors® are looking forward to continuing to meet the demands of their clients going into the new year and transferring the many lessons learned from this past year to whatever challenges lay ahead.”
