About

At the end of last year, the Special Events and Education Committees decided it was, time to turn the annual Expo upside down and re-think the entire event. So, for 2020, the groups planned to do a showcase of vendors at FAAR coupled with classes and, of course, food and raffles.

Enter COVID-19 and the subsequent, current hesitancy to gather in groups.

The Showcase is now the virtual FAAR Fair— a week of networking around a day of classes scheduled for Wednesday, September 16th. Presenting virtually allows us to have more participation than ever before, anyone with internet access can join in!

The first class begins at 9 am and the day finishes up after 2 pm when the election results will be announced for 2021 Board of Directors AND the winner of the 2021 REALTOR Dues Raffle (a $675 value), sponsored by the Fredericksburg REALTORS® Foundation.

To comply with the bylaws, which stipulate that FAAR must have an annual general membership meeting, a meeting will be convened at 9 am just before the beginning of the first class and will be at reconvened at 2 pm to announce the election results and the raffle winner.
