Key Committees, Special Committees, Work Groups and Task Forces work continually on behalf of the membership to achieve the Association’s objectives as approved in the strategic plan. Committee assignments are made every year in December by the President and President-Elect with the input of senior staff.
In-person committee meetings are held, at a minimum, on a monthly basis. Interim conference calls and/or additional in-person meetings (depending on the committee) are also held throughout the year. There are four Key Committees and ten Special Committees. See all committee listings at the bottom of the page.
If you’re interested in serving on a committee? Here are a few recommendations:
- Attend the committee meetings as an observer at the bi-annual governance meetings in the Spring and Fall
- Make yourself and your interest known to the current President and President-Elect and/or your local association executive or leadership
- Read the Volunteer Handbook so you know what to expect: Oregon REALTORS® Volunteer Handbook 2021
