Volunteer for a Committee
The Salt Lake Board of Realtors® serves a four-fold mission: Government advocacy, knowledge, communication, and service. Committees help the Board accomplish this mission. Realtor® and affiliate members are encouraged to volunteer to serve on one or more of the Board’s committees. The committee experience offers an exceptional opportunity to network with other real estate professionals and make new friends.
