If you’ve been looking for ways to get more involved in the real estate industry and make a difference in your profession, apply today for a National Association of REALTORS® committee. The application period is open now (as of March 2, 2020) through May 1, 2020, for 2021 committee selections.
The YPN Advisory Board is just one of more than 90 committees, councils, forums, and advisory groups to choose from. There’s bound to be a topic that piques your interests. Whether it’s global business, technology, RPAC, or broker issues, there’s probably a committee for you.
NAR strives to ensure that its committees reflect the composition of the general membership. Serving on a committee is a great way to contribute to NAR’s decision-making process. Committees are a forum for new ideas, discussions, and debates.
Those who apply must include endorsements (three maximum) from colleagues who have served in leadership roles or association staff at the state or local level. Committee selections will be announced on Sept. 30, 2020. Review the committee selection timeline for important dates, and review the FAQ page for more insight into NAR’s committee appointment process.
