David currently serves as Chairman of the MRIS Investment Committee. Other examples of his ongoing commitment to the industry include serving as a former Board member of the REALTORS® Federal Credit Union, and as a former member of the NAR MLS Policy Committee. He is a founding member of COVE, an industry think tank comprised of large MLS organizations.

When it comes to giving back, David also exemplifies MRIS’s philosophy of service. He was selected “Volunteer of the Year” by the National Eating Disorders Association, which provides education and awareness to individuals and families suffering from eating disorders.
