This committee strives to provide excellence in educational programming to enhance our members and their service to the community. With a goal of increased professionalism, this committee values collaborative and critical thinking from its members.
As a member of the Government Affairs Committee, you will provide valuable input to all levels of government (local alderman and council meetings, state hill visits, and nationally through NAR). The Committee watches legislative activity and important industry issues to ensure REALTORS® have a voice in the decision making processes. This is an important group and requires discernment, discretion, and confidentiality.
The Grievance Committee works alongside the Professional Standards Committee as the first step in reviewing any complaint of violations to the NAR Code of Ethics. This committee only meets as necessary and must maintain a sense of confidentiality around matters discussed. A good understanding of the Code of Ethics and additional professional standards training are a requirement to serve on the committee. (See requirements below)
The Membership Services Committee is a great way to get involved and get to know the membership if you are new to the Association. The Committee is one of our largest and they are responsible for providing information to our new members, the annual membership drive, and planning of social events including the Annual Golf Tournament and Installation Ceremony.
The Professional Standards Committee works alongside the Grievance Committee as the second step in hearing complaints of violations to the NAR Code of Ethics and Arbitration hearings. This committee only meets as necessary and must maintain a sense of confidentiality around matters discussed. A solid understanding of the Code of Ethics, previous participation in the Grievance Committee and additional professional standards training are a requirement to serve on the committee. (See requirements below)
The RPAC Committee works closely with the Government Affairs Committee as the fundraising and advocacy arm of WCAR. RPAC investments support political engagement at the local, state and national level. Many of our members are unaware of the true impact of RPAC in our industry and how they can get involved. If you love government affairs, development activities and teamwork, this is the committee for you!
