Local Realtor Associations are run by volunteer leaders. A Board of Directors is elected each year, and committee appointments are made. Current committee members will need to reaplly each year.
Why Do We Need Committees?
A committee’s primary function is to provide programs, products, and services that best meet members’ needs and are cost effective.
Committees are the lifeblood of an association.
They provide forums for ideas, vision for the future, and they accomplish the majority of an association’s work.
The Importance of Volunteering
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” Winston Churchill
Volunteering for a committee provides opportunities to:
- get to know other colleagues
- enhance your real estate and leadership knowledge
- network closely with affiliates
- gain insight into how the association operates
