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 encourages all committee members to be GCAAR D&I Champions (that is, to have completed At Home with Diversity (AHWD), Fairhaven, and NAR’s Implicit-Bias training – learn more).
  • Beginning with the 2022 board nomination process and selection of committee chairs and vice-chairs, preference should be given to applicants who have completed the AHWD class. Those who have not completed AHWD shall complete the course during their term.
  • Beginning with the 2023 board nomination process and selection of committee members, applicants are required to be D&I Champions.
Applications for 2022 committees open October 12 and close October 29, 2021. 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!

PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
The Property Management Committee is for members who want to make a positive impression on the rental property community. This committee comprises local leaders who review and make amendments to applicable GCAAR/DCAR property forms. A second core function is reviewing and making recommendations to the Public Policy Committee on housing provider-tenant legislation. Moreover, the committee creates new forms as needed (determined by market conditions and changing regulations and standards).

The committee also helps set the standard for best practices and protocols in the property management space. The aim is to enhance members’ businesses with an emphasis on community stewardship.

Membership
Members must attend monthly meetings. Members must be ready (or willing to learn) to actively contribute toward conversations surrounding forms and public policy affecting housing providers. Assignments between meetings may include reading, proofing and/or editing forms and legislation.

2022 focus
The pandemic placed the rental housing community in the limelight. This past year, the Property Management Committee has taken a more active role in monitoring and reviewing legislation affecting housing providers, and we expect this to continue. As always, the committee will continue to focus on improving forms for members.
