C.A.R. Committee meetings are open to every member with the exception of those sessions designated as closed meetings by the Board of Directors, or for which attendance is by invitation only. Actions of these Committees are fully reported to the Directors.
Seating arrangements are provided to accommodate committee members and as many visitors as possible subject to available meeting room space. Seating near front of room is for committee members. Visitors are requested to observe this policy. Discussion by non-committee members is at the discretion of the chairman to ensure that committee business is transacted in a timely and business-like manner.
By Directors Action, smoking is not permitted in any C.A.R. meetings except meal events.
PAGERS AND CELLULAR PHONES
By Directors Action, pagers and cellular phones shall be in the silent or off mode during all business meetings and forums of the California Association of REALTORS® and all cellular phone conversations shall be taken outside the meeting rooms. (6/99)
The use of recording or transmission devices is not permitted in any C.A.R. Committee or Directors' Session without the express permission of the individual chairing the meeting.
The California Association of REALTORS® makes every effort to ensure that the facilities C.A.R. uses for its business meetings are in full compliance with the American with Disabilities Act. However, should anyone attending an event require special assistance, please notify a member of our meetings staff at C.A.R. Headquarters. C.A.R. will work with the facilities involved and make every reasonable effort to accommodate these requests in order to provide for full enjoyment of the event program. Special requirements for hotel accommodations should be brought directly to the attention of the hotel.
CONFLICTS OF INTEREST
Some REALTORS® attending C.A.R. committee meetings may have competing interests. Committee decisions should be made to best serve C.A.R. members; not to give individuals profit in competing ventures. It is inappropriate for persons attending a committee meeting to participate in discussions and/or gain information for their personal financial benefit to the detriment of C.A.R. members. All persons attending any committee or directors meeting should not disclose strategic or confidential information regarding the policies of C.A.R. in a manner that is contrary to the best interests of C.A.R. members.
Please respect the rights of other C.A.R. members and exhibiting companies by not distributing flyers, pamphlets or other materials of any type while attending the Business Meetings.
