NAR Committee Recommendation Process Closes May 23rd
The online Committee Recommendation Database on REALTOR.org is now open and accepting recommendations.
The deadline for submitting committee recommendations is May 23, 2014. All recommendations must be submitted via the online database. Using the database, 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. You will still need to submit a self-recommendation even if you have have asked a colleague to recommend you (this is how NAR will know that you really do want the appointment).
How to place a recommendation:
- Log-on to REALTOR.org
- Click the “About NAR” tab at the top of the page
- Click “Governance” in the left hand side of the page
- Click “Committees” in the left hand side of the page
- Click “Committee Selection Process" in the left hand side of the page
- Click “Enter and view your committee recommendations” in the center of the page
Re-appointment to Committees & Continuing Terms
Committee members are NOT automatically considered for reappointment! A member currently serving on a committee, whose term expires in 2014 MUSTsubmit a recommendation via the Online Committee Recommendation Database if he/she would like to be considered for service in 2015.
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.
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 Database on REALTOR.org.
