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 will be held on Thursday, December 8, 2022, in the auditorium of the Realtor® Campus. Volunteers are encouraged to come talk with 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.
