2021 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

2021 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

AFREA 2021 VIRTUAL AGM
“ADAPTATION”
 
The REA community has proven over the years its ability to respond within an ever-changing industry. We begin by recognizing the need for change, embracing the processes required to move forward, and adapting to that change with a positive and motivated attitude. This process promotes success in our day-to-day business and resiliency in our long-term planning. The past year has proved to be even more challenging with COVID-19 and all the changes needed to navigate this new obstacle. Again, we adapt. This year’s theme “Adaptation” shows our ability to recognize, embrace, and adapt to the changes before us. 
 
Adaptation is defined as a change in structure, function, or behavior to improve one’s chances of survival in a specific environment. This manifests itself in the natural world as ‘survival of the fittest.’ In the business world, it means the ability to adapt our way of thinking and doing to suit a new environment. 
 
That new environment is the pandemic.
 
We strive to provide you the necessary information via our VIRTUAL AGM – something many of us are getting more and more familiar with, whether we expected to or not. The AFREA must take on new processes to provide a connection, show support, and communicate with our members. Although we all miss the in-person networking our AGM offers, we are able through the power of technology to bring you the reports and information required under legislation. 
 
As we move forward into 2021, remember our past and use that momentum as our ability to accommodate change. 
 
Recognize – Embrace – Adapt… 
REA – it’s what we are and what we do. 
 
On behalf of the Board & Staff, thank you for attending the 2021 AFREA Virtual AGM. 
 
Dan Astner, AFREA President
