Government Affairs Committee
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.
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)
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
Professional Standards Committee**
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 team work, this is the committee for you!
