It’s time for our once-a-year call for volunteers: We need you to be more than a Realtor.We need to you be a Realtor® leader, and to bring your expertise to VAR — to improve the real estate business for all of Virginia.

This is a chance to advance your career, and to advise, inform, and guide the association staff.

Essentially, if you volunteer with VAR, you can help shape Virginia’s entire real estate industry. Seriously.

  • Help determine our legislative agenda on the Public Policy Committee.
  • Help keep members informed on the Information Management Committee.
  • Help set statewide education initiatives on the Professional Development Committee.
  • Help ensure Realtors® stay on the right side of the law on the Risk Management Committee.

And it doesn’t take much to make a tremendous impact: Three to five meetings each year, in person or virtually.

That’s all you need to make a difference — not to mention the ability to make long-lasting, solid connections with Realtors from across the state.

So please, take two minutes to fill out or update your Member Profile Expertise at, and tell us which committees you’d like to serve on.

The deadline to put your name in the hat is August 14, 2012.

Stand up, stand out, and help shape the future of Virginia’s real estate industry — from the inside.
