Leadership Opportunities

Let Your Voice Be Heard!

As a committee or advisory group member, you have a say in matters affecting your industry. Your insight shapes how NVAR delivers value to its members and how Realtors® deliver value to their clients.

Get Involved: Make an Impact

Committees, advisory groups and forum advisory teams help bridge the gap between the association and our members – allowing us to work together to meet the needs of NVAR’s membership. As a volunteer leader, your input helps enhance the member experience, and your dedication is instrumental to the success of Northern Virginia Realtors®.

How are members selected? Leadership applicants must submit an application. To learn more about the Board of Directors nomination process, which takes place in June of each year, click here. The NVAR President, who is an elected volunteer member, then appoints candidates to selected leadership roles.

NEW 2019 Opportunities

To achieve NVAR’s 2019 goal of increased member participation and engagement, the board of directors has approved the creation of five new leadership opportunities!

Please Note: The online application period for the first four groups closed on April 8. The selected applicants will serve a half-year term beginning in May and ending Dec. 31. For the 2020 year, they will become integrated with the application process for NVAR’s existing volunteer groups. (The Ambassador Program is part of a separate application process, with more details coming soon!)

More Leadership Opportunities

The application period for the following 2019 committee and forum advisory group positions is now closed.

The 2020 application period will open in August, 2019.

Although committees, advisory groups and forum advisory teams have the same application process, they differ in their goals. Committees and advisory groups recommend policy to NVAR’s Board of Directors. Forum advisory teams help plan our forum events, which include networking opportunities, professional development, educational programs and more. Any member can attend a forum event, but you must apply to be part of the advisory team that plans those events.
