Our Committees

ICAAR is committed to providing its members with opportunities to get involved in the community, develop their careers and skills, play a role in the future of our industry. Our committees play an important role in all of these goals, as they allow members to build leadership experience, assist with creating forms and events, and play a role in continuing to promote the REALTOR® brand to our community.

Serving on a committee is a great way to get involved at ICAAR, connect with fellow agents, and contribute to the success and growth of the Association. Committee involvement is volunteer-based with your service being a one-year commitment, with the opportunity to return. Most committees meet once a month, or at the call of a Committee Chair.
