Committees/Groups

Joining a committee has always been a great way to make new contacts, learn about new trends in our profession and have a voice in shaping the Association's direction. Each year over one hundred REALTORS® and Platinum Affiliates become active participants in Bay East’s committees.

If you'd like to get more involved or simply have some great ideas, joining a committee is the perfect place to start. We have plenty of opportunities for volunteers.

Committees Open to Member Volunteers

These committees are made up of members who volunteer their time and effort. Members can apply to serve on one or more committee based on their interests. Some committees have requirements for membership while others have waiting lists. If you are interested in becoming a committee volunteer, please email Pam or click on the Volunteer button below and complete the form.
