Government Affairs Directors Make Music Together

This year at the National Association of REALTORS® Government Affairs Directors Meetings in Portland, Oregon, a group of talented folks merged together in impromptu jam sessions.

Little did they know that a few weeks later, they would be invited by President Elizabeth Mendenhall to perform as the opening entertainment for NAR 360 on Thursday, November 1 at the Hynes Convention Center.

Members include Josh Branum (Clarksville Association of REALTORS®, Tennessee), David Stark (Bay East Association of REALTORS®, Pleasanton, CA), Betsy Schultz (Springfield, OR), Jessica Leigh Dietrick (Oklahoma Association of REALTORS®), and Brian Bernardoni (Chicago Association of REALTORS®).

The team delivered nearly 30 minutes of crowd-pleasers with songs like “Shipping Off To Boston” by Dropkick Murphys, “Won’t Back Down” by Tom Petty, “Wagon Wheel” by Old Crow Medicine Show, “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons, and Neil Diamond’s classic, “Sweet Caroline.”

Even the audience got involved in the music.

The band of talented GADs were honored to be a part of the 2018 REALTORS® Conference and Expo during one of the most popular and well-attending sessions at the meetings.

Well played, GAD team…well played!
