Why should I get involved?
Many members do not realize that the association in governed completely by its member volunteers. By serving others you will gain knowledge from those who have been the decision makers and creators of policy years before you. This is invaluable to your business and can prepare you to succeed where others cannot.
Being an informed REALTOR® is an advantage in the real estate industry. The more you know about the current market conditions, building permits within the townships and counties, economic forecasts, MLS issues and the law of real estate the better you can serve your clients.
One of the best ways to get involved in your local association here at GJARA is to join a committee. All of leadership throughout the REALTOR® community is volunteer based. This gift of time and talent can come in various forms. Having a group of dedicated individuals who protect the association members is vital to our overall success.
At GJARA we have several Committees and events that can plug you in to the group that can support and assist you throughout your career. Whether a veteran agent or brand new to real estate, information is power. Get involved!
