My experience qualifies me for an elected position on the GSREIN Board.  I believe that we are the gatekeepers of the data and need to continue to protect our interest.  This time in technology history is moving very quickly and we need to stay relevant and assure that we provide our agents with the most up to date products.  Moreover, we must make the best possible decisions related to the control and release our data.
