GSAR Members News and Events

Matrix Parallel Period is HERE!

As you know, we are gearing up for our conversion to Matrix, our new MLS platform. Remember, Matrix will be REPLACING MLXchange and Fusion. 

Parallel period for all CNYIS members began on April 4th. 

The scheduled cut-over date to Matrix is May 18th.

During this parallel period, you will still enter and modify all listings in MLXchange and Fusion. Once cut-over occurs, all listings will be entered and modified in Matrix only. (Fusion and MLXchange will remain for approximately 30 days after cut-over, for reference only. Those platforms will no longer be updated.)

There is an All Committee Meeting scheduled for next week!

If you have been assigned to a GSAR committee for 2016 there will be an All Committee Meeting next Thursday, Jan 28th., from 3-4:00 p.m. at GSAR. If you are a Committee Chair or Co-Chair we are asking that you arrive at 2:00pm for a Chair/Co-Chair meeting. Come celebrate GSAR's Visioning for 2016 and learn how your committee will play an active role in meeting visioning goals. It will be a casual meeting with wine and appetizers where you can meet and mingle with the other members of your committee and the rest of the GSAR committees.
