Hello from Realty Investors Group. You should have recently received an email from Katy Fleming and Jim Edenfield announcing changes with Investors Network Community (INC) and Realty Investors Group (RIG).

This email is the first email from RIG. As Katy spelled out in her letter, the old INC Facebook Group will remain intact but with the new name Realty Investors Group (RIG). Those changes have been made and the new group is at https://www.facebook.com/groups/RealtyInvestorsGroup/. The feel and operation of the Facebook group will basically remain the same. We are in the process of getting the new website fully developed at RealtyInvestorsGroup.ORG If you have not checked out either, we encourage you to visit both the Facebook Group and Website.

We are working on starting a Quarterly E-Newsletter where our members will share insights on the different aspects of Real Estate Investing. If you would like to be a part of that, let Jim know.

As we adjust to the new RIG group, there have been some adjustments in the Advisory Board. We are sad to see Laura Gray step down, but her schedule is very demanding. Thank you Laura for being such a great part of the Advisory Team. Laura will still be a part of the group.

A huge "Thank You" goes out to Manfred Chemek, Terry Cox, and Steve Estle for staying on the board.

We are welcoming three new members to the team, Shigemi 'Sherry' Cree, Kevin Montague, and David VanSteenkiste. Thanks for joining the team. We are excited about some adjustments that are headed our way. IF you would like to take a more active role in the group, please let us know.

We will continue to hold our monthly meetings and will hold our first face to face meeting next week, Thursday, August 27 at Frolic Brewing Company at 6 pm. Due to the current virus restrictions, we are limited to 40 people in the room. Be sure to get your tickets to reserve your seat. The Group Membership is separate, the ticket ensures your seating. For RIG Members, we will host a Zoom Session for those that do not feel comfortable in a group setting. You can get your tickets by clicking here

The structure of our meetings will remain basically the same. The August Topic will be Raw Land Investing with David VanSteenkiste. For September, Ken Palmen will be leading the meeting talking about 1031 Exchanges. This has been a highly requested topic.
