Delaware R.E. Commission Hearing Outcome

Dear CIRC Members, Brokers and Sales Agents,
Thank you to all those who replied to the email regarding additional Continuing Education (CE) requirements.  We did get a significant response.   We also had people take time to actually provide reasons for their input, as opposed to just providing a one or two word answer. The overwhelming response to our neutral question was that people did not want the additional CE hours. In the responses that came to us, there was only one person "for" the additional hours.
Both of us made statements at the meeting for the record incorporating thoughts of many respondents.  We registered a clear "against." There were proponents for the additional hours at the meeting including educators, those who had participated on the committees, and others. They carried the day (and won the vote in favor or 21 hours of Continuing Education every two years, beginning May 1, 2012).

We would like to say a special thank you to Chris Whitfield of the Delaware Real Estate Commission who voted against the additional requirements. He provided great arguments and facts showing that he understood the information in detail, and he was not a shrinking violet in the face of many board members who were proponents. 

Again, thank you to all.
Greg Ellis, CIRC President
Dan Lesher, CIRC Chairman, Continuing Education Committee

A message to CIRC's leadership

TO: Dan Lesher and Greg Ellis
FROM: Leigh Johnstone

"Most of us have no idea as to how many long and frustrating hours they have and continue to spend representing all of us on the Commercial side of the Delaware Real Estate industry….It is through the selfless efforts of a few, like Dan & Greg, that the rest of us enjoy the benefits of being able to practice our profession with the protection of the highest possible regulatory standards but without the burden of meaningless and stifling government rules and regulations…

Thank You for your service to our CIRC community!!!

Governor Jack Markell Spoke to CIRC Members
