Committees are where the progress of the Association begins! Committee service offers members an opportunity to advance their own knowledge and skills while adding significantly to the efficiency of the Association. Volunteering does entail responsibility, attendance at called meetings, and sharing of work for a better Association of REALTORS®! Every effort will be made to place you on the committee(s) of your choice.
