First Quarter Referrals of 2017

referral2On April 12, 2017, SECBN held its quarterly business meeting. Vice President Chuck Flagg, Cruise Planners, announced there had been 211 (193 paper and 18 electronic) referrals based in the first quarter of 2017. We had a tie for first, second and third place in the numbers of referrals passed in the first three months of the year.

Chuck announced Linda Lullie, Inspired 2 Design, and Tommy Sugg were tied in first for the most referrals passed. Following up and tying for second place were Bill Mullin, Legal Shield, and Carolyn Greene, KE Green Mechanical. (It should be noted that Bill Mullin is in first place for the number of electronic referrals passed to members of the group). Tammy McQueen, Premier Roofing, and Gemma Beylouny, Rejoice Maids, tied for third place.

The number of referrals passed in the first quarter of 2017 was slightly behind those passed during the same period in 2016, but they were ahead of the numbers passed during the same period in 2016.
