1st Vice PresidentJamie McDowell; Managing Broker / Owner of Equity Northwest Real Estate - Southern Idaho Branch Why am I running for office? Because Lacey and Jordan made me. 😂 ... And because I feel the best way to make a difference (as well as gain insight into our industry, our association, and my own personal growth as an active REALTOR®) is to participate, listen, learn and offer assistance wherever needed. Being a current member on the Board of Directors has given me an opportunity to speak on behalf of many other REALTORS® and affiliates - to bring their thoughts, concerns, and opinions directly to our association where they can have a direct impact on discussions, changes and growth within our association, as well as our community and our own personal livelihood. We all can make a difference if we can be heard. To be a voice for those that wouldn't otherwise have one, is a responsibility and a honor I take very seriously.
