Leadership / Volunteer Opportunities
Being an informed REALTOR® is an advantage in the real estate industry. The more you know about the current market conditions, city and county infrastructure, economic forecasts, MLS issues, and the law of real estate the better you can serve your clients.
One of the best ways to get involved in your local association here at GDWCAR is to join a committee. All of the leadership throughout the REALTOR® community is volunteer-based.
