CHICAGO — As more organizations join the Council of Multiple Listing Services (CMLS) to help bring the real estate industry together during a new era of collaboration and cooperation, CMLS will set a membership record this year. About 200 MLS providers and business partners are coming together with an expressed interest in advancing multiple listing services and building a better marketplace.

“CMLS is playing a major role in bringing the best practices together and then sharing those best practices with our members to improve the entire industry,” says Denee Evans, CEO of CMLS. “Who doesn’t want to move the industry forward for their subscribers?”

At the heart of the organization’s plans to explore issues, provide solutions, advance multiple listing services, CMLS will be rolling out a new website, building out Section Councils to create a greater sense of community, and incubating new ideas through best practices and certifications. CMLS has also unveiled a new membership structure to provide every organization membership with full member benefits. These include:

• Priority registration at the annual CMLS Conference
• Priority registration for any and all CMLS Workshops
• Full access to CMLS website offerings and resources
• Individual member profile on CMLS website
• Eligibility to participate in CMLS Section Councils
• Eligibility to enroll in the CMLX Certification Program
• Eligibility to serve on workgroups and other initiatives
• Direct recipient of CMLS hosted surveys

“What we’re doing is providing organizations real opportunities to move the industry forward by involving more people from member organizations in a number of hands on and engaging programs,” said Evans. “Some will take advantage of these opportunities to nurture rising stars within their organization and others will become even more visible for their own contributions to the industry. It’s an exciting time to be part of the MLS community!”

To join CMLS or renew a membership today, visit the membership section of the CMLS website, review the membership benefits, and complete the MLS application or Business Partner application as appropriate. Join or renew before March 31 to receive the best possible rate and contribute to the exciting changes taking place this year.

Companies that are considering sponsorship packages will receive membership credit once the new packages are made available. Sponsors and member organizations that join or renew within the next two weeks will be recognized for enrolling early. Welcome to CMLS!
