Welcome to the 2016 C.A.R. Committee Selection Process! Please read the information below for important deadlines, reminders, and best practices on how to submit recommendations to serve on 2016 C.A.R. committees. After reading through the information, you can begin the online C.A.R. Committee Selection Process once it opens on April 1.
(If you have questions about your 2015 C.A.R. Committee Assignments or how to serve on a committee in 2015, please contact C.A.R. Governance directly.)
Each year the C.A.R. Officers seek to put together the best group of California REALTORS® to serve on numerous C.A.R. committees to tackle the issues facing our industry and help direct Association policy. C.A.R. committee members and directors attend three C.A.R. Business Meetings throughout the year as well as conference calls and other meetings in between. Any California REALTOR® is eligible to serve on a C.A.R. Committee; being a C.A.R. Director is not required. Most committee members serve on a one year term, but certain committes have multiple year terms.
The C.A.R. Officers want to hear about the issues or programs you are passionate about and how you think your skills and expertise can best contribute to the Association as well as the committee. If you would like to serve on a C.A.R. committee, you will need to submit recommendations online for the committees and positions you are interested in by using the C.A.R. Committee Selection Process. You may recommend yourself for up to five committee positions.
The deadline for submitting 2016 C.A.R. Committee Recommendations for Leadership and Specialized/Advisory positions (Chair, Vice Chair, or Issues Chair of Standing Committees and Chair, Vice Chair, or Member of Special or Advisory Committees) is
May 15, 2015. Recommendations for general membership on Standing Committees can be made until
July 24, 2015. Regional Chairs also have until
July 24, 2015 to enter their region representative/liaison assignments.
When evaluating the recommendations submitted online, the C.A.R. Officers will take into account the information available on your Member Web Page. Please review your Member Web Page to ensure that your photo and information is up-to-date. This will provide the C.A.R. Officers with a full understanding of your expertise, market areas, designations, and more.
