Farewell from Kathy

Hello NARI members,
As of August 1st I have transitioned out of my role as the NARI Membership and Events Coordinator.  It was a bittersweet decision for me as I have enjoyed my time getting to know many of you.

NARI will continue as a great association, gathering together experts in the industry and I trust that the staff moving forward will fully support your mission.
I will be taking on an opportunity to partner with my family’s real estate group.
I wish you all continued success and I hope to connect in the future. Many thanks!
Kathy Choh
