That's how I found out about AR. They were at my state convention years ago.

I think it would give ActiveRain a bigger presence.    Blogging has taken a big step over the years, and think more REALTORS would see an option if there was a booth at NAR.

Silvia, until a few years ago, Active Rain did come to the mid-year Expo here in DC - and it was a great excuse for a meetup.  Even without anyone from Seattle, we tend to have meetups in DC in May.  If you're planning to be here for the Expo, I hope you'll make it.

I think it would be a great asset to AR to do this. That's a great idea. I do believe they were at a few national conventions several years ago in the past.

I'm just hoping that AR doesn't disappear at this time.

Silvia - I think it would be good, but as pointed out, cost may be a hurdle.  I am trying to recall if I saw the AR RainCamp mentioned above - I think they could leverage that very wel.

Well, I have seen ActiveRain at many Keller William Family Reunions and they should be at NAR conventions, too.

A number of years ago, they did a RainCamp at an NAR conference.  I would attend another if they did it again.

I think they are now attending the West Coast Conventions and Inman's. It would be nice if they were at all of them but with budget constraints that is not likely to happen.

It would be great for ActiveRain to have a greater presence. However, the effort may not justify the cost. An internet campaign might reach more prospective members.

Retention efforts may be a better plan than trying to attract new members.
