Committees

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


HOW TO VOLUNTEER
Committee Sign-Up Day is held in November each year at the Realtor® Campus. Volunteers are encouraged to come talk to committee chairs and sign up in person. Some committees are limited in size and some assignments are available by appointment only. Specific details for each committee are provided below. When volunteers join a committee, they commit to serve on that committee for one calendar year (January – December). Missing more than 3 committee meetings in a year will disqualify volunteers from counting committee service for that year on awards applications.
