Ed Neaves, president of the Bloomington-Normal Association of REALTORS® and an Illinois REALTORS® board member, has been named 2018 treasurer-nominee for the state association.
An Illinois REALTORS® Board of Directors vote is expected to formally place Neaves on the leadership ladder later this year. Neave’s selection by the association’s Nominating Committee was announced Tuesday, April 25, 2017.
Neaves is the managing broker of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Snyder Real Estate in Bloomington and is committed to fostering grassroots involvement and political advocacy in the REALTOR® community at the local, state and national level.
Neaves has served on a variety of Illinois REALTORS® committees and working groups, with a particular emphasis on political advocacy. He chairs the Federal Political Coordinators Working Group. He was honored with the 2015 Illinois REALTORS® Political Involvement Award for outstanding political and legislative service to the REALTOR® organization.
He is a major investor in the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) and will be inducted into the RPAC Hall of Fame in May. He is the Federal Political Coordinator for U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Channahon) and is the State Legislative Contact for Illinois Sen. Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington).
Once the nominating committee’s selection is sanctioned by the association’s board of directors, Neaves will join other Illinois REALTOR® leaders in 2018, including Matt Difanis, who will become president; Dan Wagner, who will become president-elect and Doug Carpenter, who will be immediate past president.
