This section will be available on all ballots.  City Mayor Mike Morris visited with us during our Quarterly meeting about the LEDA funds.  CLOVIS, N.M. (KAMR/KCIT) – Announced today, on Thursday Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed Senate Bill 49, an amendment to the Local Economic Development Act (LEDA) that “will allow

municipalities to utilize LEDA funds to incentivize retail. Mayor Michael Morris spearheaded this effort during New Mexico’s recent legislative session, and the bill was carried in the legislature by Senator Pat Woods (R), Senator Ron Griggs (R), Senator Liz Stephanics (D), Representative Kelly Fajardo (R) and Representative Randy Crowder (R).”

“Senate Bill 49 is vital to our area to support local retail in Clovis and prevent buyer leakage into
Texas,” remarked Mayor Morris. “I would like to thank Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and
our local delegation, including Senator Woods and Representative Crowder, for their support in
this effort. By incentivizing new retail and the expansion of existing retail under LEDA, we will
be able to expand Clovis’ economy and encourage the community to shop Clovis first.”

Cancelled Class and Office Operations

Social Media Class Cancelled

Unfortunately Clinton has decided to cancel the in-person class we’d scheduled for April 17th. As much as he would like to he will not be able to travel or teach an in person class until this coronavirus blows over.

However, he has dropped the price of his online social media course (the same one taught in person) and combined it with the other courses he teaches – we are invited to take all 4 classes from his online school – which gives 13 hours of CE’s – for only $49.99. And he has made the subscription term 1 year, so you don’t have to take them right away.

The online school and the courses have all been approved and are licensed by the NM REC and count toward NM CEU requirements.

CPAR Daily Operations

If you have any business that would normally be done at the CPAR office I am still available over the phone.  As of Thursday, classes being held by Mr Treece are still on the books. You can sign up by going to our website here.

If you have new members joining your office, transferring in or out of you office or if you just have general questions I can be reached by calling the CPAR office.  All calls are being routed to my cell phone at this time.

Lockboxes:  If someone in your office has a lockbox they do not currently have on a property and you need it, 1st check with them, they may have it for a listing coming up, if not you can call me and let me know the lockbox number.  That is a transfer we can do without any special trips.  If you don’t have access to a box, please call Kathy Segura in Clovis or Wanda Graham in Portales and both will be happy to help you.

February Updates

CPAR Office Closure

The CPAR office will be closed on Wednesday Feb. 29th due to NMAR convention.  Since we will be out of pocket, if you have an issue with lock boxes please call Sentrilock or Gaye Cooke for assistance.

Wednesday Tour

We are going to change Wednesday morning tour for the month of February.  Our new start time will be at 830am.  We are hoping to make the time easier on our working parents to get kids to school and still join us for updates and home tours.  Please make sure to join us and let us know if you like the new time!

Who wants to win their 2021 CPAR (local only) dues?  We are implementing a new point system starting in February.   One (1) point per page/event unless designated by the current CPAR President, Host is responsible for getting signatures and turning this sheet into the CPAR office or email. NO signature, NO sheet = NO points. CPAR Officers, Directors or Staff are not eligible.  Some examples, but ot limited to, are visiting houses on tour Wednesday morning, bringing in requested donation items during donation drives (1 point per drive), attending CPAR meetings, and special events our President may announce.

Lock Box Inventory Upkeep

Wireless-Lockbox

We are now keeping up with lock box assignments weekly.  This is an ongoing process and will be checked each week.  Any realtors with lock boxes that have been unassigned for 10+ days will be sent a letter asking for action. A $89 bill will be generated on Friday, if there is no response.  Lock Boxes can be returned to the CPAR office in Clovis or Kiva Realty in Portales.
