Committee Overview

Committees are critical to the success of GCAAR’s members, and we deeply appreciate those who volunteer their time and professional expertise to the real estate community.

The committee description and focus of work, as well as membership requirements and time commitment, can be found below.  

GCAAR requires all applicants for committees to be GCAAR Diversity & Inclusion Champions (that is, to have completed At Home with Diversity (AHWD), Fairhaven and NAR’s Implicit-Bias training, and reported your completion of these items to GCAAR – learn more).

Applications for 2023 committees are NOW OPEN and will close October 21, 2022. Applicants will be notified of appointments in early December. Appointments are made only once each year. Thank you for your interest in serving on a GCAAR committee! 

GCAAR’s Public Policy Committee discusses the impact of proposed legislative and regulatory changes on real estate business and the housing market and decides whether to take a position on those proposals. The committee focuses its advocacy efforts on those issues of greatest and most direct impact to the REALTOR® community.


Members must attend monthly meetings, scheduled for the third Wednesday of each month, participate in county or state task forces and attend hearings.

2023 focus
In 2023, the committee will likely review proposed zoning changes being considered by the Montgomery County Planning Board and County Council, intended to spur new ‘smart growth’ development.
