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!

Community Service
The Community Service Committee identifies and plans community service activities with GCAAR’s strategic charitable partners and other non-profits that fall within GCAAR’s charitable priorities. The committee also nominates the annual GCAAR Good Neighbor Award winner. 

Committee members should demonstrate a commitment to community service. Members attend monthly meetings and attend or lead at least one community service activity per year. This committee meets the second Wednesday of every month from 1-2pm.

2022 focus
  • Support the work of our strategic charitable partners and identify volunteer opportunities with both our partners and other non-profits.
  • Increase participation and awareness of community service events among the general GCAAR membership.
  • Raise awareness of the GCAAR Good Neighbor Award.
