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!

POLITICAL AND CAMPAIGN AFFAIRS (MONTGOMERY COUNTY)
The Political and Campaign Affairs Committee will be charged primarily with planning and executing fundraising efforts to collect investments in the REALTOR® Party (REALTORS® Political Action Committee/RPAC) for Montgomery County. They will work to further empower GCAAR members to broadly disseminate messaging surrounding the importance of RPAC and ensure that all members of GCAAR know the value of investing in their industry.  

The committee will also have a key role in the use of REALTOR® Party resources during upcoming election years in Montgomery County and will be preparing to secure increased RPAC investments for those election cycles.

Membership
Members must attend quarterly meetings and participate in and promote REALTOR® Party fundraising efforts with GCAAR members. Members may also be asked or invited to attend political events in the community.

2022 focus
Members will be focused on meeting our RPAC fundraising goals so we have the resources to be active participants in the various 2022 Montgomery County elections. Committee members will also review candidates for Montgomery County Council, County Executive, and other offices for possible endorsement and/or independent campaign efforts on behalf of GCAAR in the 2022 election cycle.
