2017 NAR Committee Recommendations

Are you or someone you know interested in serving on an NAR committee in 2017?   

The online Committee Recommendation Form on REALTOR.org will be accepting recommendations beginning on March 7th!  (Instruction documents will be available on March 1st.)  Please read the following important information regarding the Committee Recommendation Process:

Re-appointment to Committees & Continuing Terms

Committee members are NOT automatically considered for reappointmentA member currently serving on a committee, whose term expires in 2016 MUST submit a recommendation via the Online Committee Recommendation Form if he/she would like to be considered for service in 2017. 

Members who have a continuing term that expires in 2017 or 2018 do not need to submit a recommendation to remain on the committee; they will remain until the term expires.

Process for 2017 Committee Recommendation Process

The deadline for submitting committee recommendations is May 23, 2016.  All recommendations must be submitted via the online form.

Using the form, you can recommend yourself or another suitable candidate.   When submitting a recommendation you are required to include relevant comments that highlight the candidate’s skills and qualifications for the position.  All comments are confidential.

We encourage you to seek recommendations from colleagues with whom you have worked closely, in particular members of state and national leadership.

Follow these steps to access the Committee Recommendation Home Page:

1. Log-on to REALTOR.org
2. Click the “About NAR” tab at the top of the page
3. Click “Governance” in the right hand side of the page
4. Click “Committees” in the right hand side of the page
5. Click “Committee Selection Process” in the right hand side of the page
6. Click “Enter and view your committee recommendations” in the center of the page

The link below may also be used to access the recommendation form directly on REALTOR.org. http://gms.realtor.org/comrecords.nsf/comselMbrhome?readform

Things to Consider when Submitting Recommendations

Please review the committee structure, which lists each committee’s purpose statement, composition (how many members), length of term, and specific qualifications for consideration to see what committee you would best serve.  Please note that if appointed to a committee you will be expected to attend all of its meetings and serve the full length of the term.  Furthermore, please note that forums are open to all members; so recommendations need not be submitted for forums unless you are seeking the position of chair or vice chair.

The committee structure* can be found by clicking “View Committee Information” on the committee recommendation homepage (link provided above).

*Note: The content is from the current (2016) committee structure.  The 2017 committee structure will be approved at the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo in May, 2016.

Expertise Profiles

NAR’s Expertise Profile Database was designed to provide all levels of the REALTOR® family (including the Local, State and National Associations) with key information about you and your professional experience. The information that you will provide in this profile will be used as a resource in a variety of ways, including identification of members with certain expertise to serve on committees, working groups, presidential advisory groups; also, to respond to surveys about association issues, products, services etc.  

Individuals interested in serving on NAR’s committees are encouraged to create and/or update their expertise profiles.  However, they are not required. Please note:  Completing an expertise profile is NOT the same as submitting a recommendation for yourself!  If you wish to serve on a committee you still must submit a recommendation via the online Committee Recommendation Form on REALTOR.org.

To access the Expertise Profile page*:
Click “Enter Your Expertise Profile” on the committee recommendations homepage (http://gms.realtor.org/comrecords.nsf/comselMbrhome?readform)
