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 reapply 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
WCAR Committees organize the following:
Homeownership Seminar for Students
REALTOR® Volunteer Day
RPAC Auction/Fundraising Event
Quarterly Membership Meetings
Committee members are appointed by Incoming leadership and must be a member in good standing.
The President and CEO are non-voting ex-officio members of all committees and must be notified of meetings.
The President has the power to remove, subject to confirmation by the Board of Directors, any member from a committee.
If a committee member is unable or unwilling to continue serving on the committee, the President, along with the committee chair will appoint, subject to confirmation by the Board of Directors, another member to complete the remaining term.
Any committee member who fails to attend three (3) regular or special meetings of the committee, without a reason deemed valid and acceptable by the Chair or the committee, will be deemed to have resigned from the Committee.
Questions? If you would like more information on a specific committee please contact President-Elect Elaine Wehri.
Applications for 2024 are open in October.
