May’s spotlight is on the Education Committee. The Education Committee develops, organizes and provides educational programs and seminars to the SBAOR Membership. The selected topics are intended to strengthen our membership’s level of knowledge and professionalism.   Recent topics include the learning about the ever changing landscape of homeowners insurance in light of recent natural disasters, reviewing tax laws to updates on regulatory changes within the real estate industry.

Education Committee Members are Todd Shea (Chair),Susan Bonanno, Janet Caminite, Leigh Cashman, Bogdan Dejanovic, Rachael Douglas, Marisa Holly, Austin Lampson, Jennifer Le Mert, Stephen Macfarlane, Guy Rivera, Aaron Schulman, Deborah Schwartz, Marcella Simmons, Rick Wilson and Staff Liaison Kasey Gilles.
