December 2018 Volunteer of the Month
Paul Hickman and Curt Raymond
Our role at NAPBS is
Our role at NAPBS is to do whatever we can to safeguard our rights. Too many times, our city or our county government employees treat the information as if they own it, denying the public and our industry the freedom to view the information.
Why we wanted to volunteer with NAPBS
We wanted to volunteer for two reasons: the NAPBS has brought a lot of credibility to our industry, so we jumped at the opportunity to give back. Secondly, because more and more courts are taking it upon themselves to decide who can and cannot view public information.
