REALTORS® and Affiliates volunteer their time to serve on committees and task forces of the Association. Committees and task forces are
established to research and formulate policy for the ongoing operations of the Association. Chairs are selected by the President of the
Association; committee members are appointed by the committee chairs. Committee Participation Forms are circulated to the membership in
late summer for the following year to encourage participation for committee service from members willing to contribute time to their organization.
