The Virginia Real Estate Board is composed of seven real estate licensee members and two citizen members, all appointed by the governor and confirmed by the General Assembly. The term of office is four years.

The current term of one licensee member expires on June 30, 2013, and the governor will shortly determine whom he’ll appoint. The current appointment is eligible for reappointment.

VAR regularly makes recommendations to the governor on appointments to the Real Estate Board. Association policy requires that we solicit member nominations before determining which candidate(s) VAR will recommend to the governor for appointment or reappointment.

If you are interested in being considered by VAR for recommendation, please submit a résumé or career biography to VAR’s Erika Almstead (Erika@varealtor.com) by 5:00 p.m. EST on Friday, March 1, 2013. The VAR Leadership Team will determine names to submit to the governor, subject to ratification by the Board of Directors.
