Florida Realtors President Shares Update on COVID-19

To limit exposure to the virus, Pres. Barry Grooms announced that Florida Realtors has suspended all in-person meetings at Orlando headquarters and the Tallahassee office – but the state association remains open for business and all its products, tools and services are available.

Dear colleagues and members of Florida Realtors®:

In times of stress and uncertainty, our Florida Realtors’ family stands strong together, ready to support each other and their communities. As COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to be a developing concern in Florida and across the globe, know that your Florida Realtors Leadership Team has been in constant contact with local associations and the National Association of Realtors® to safeguard continuity of service.

Your state association remains open for business, and all of our products, tools and services are available to our members to assist in their business throughout this global crisis. Going forward, we will continue to update you on any developments or cancellations.

There are changes to other operations, however, to limit exposure of our members and employees to the virus.

Effective immediately, Florida Realtors has curtailed all in-person meetings held at our Orlando headquarters and the Tallahassee office for the next 30 days. Committee meetings and all other association business will be conducted electronically. Staff travel has also been suspended.

Florida Realtors continues to monitor all official state communications regarding COVID-19. See Florida Realtors’ recent statement on the novel coronavirus.

Please take care of yourselves and continue to follow health officials’ recommended preventative precautions for COVID-19. Stay vigilant and be well.

Your 2020 President,

Barry Grooms
