2022 SAR Committee Application
SAR Members in good standing are welcome to apply to join a 2022 SAR Committee. Participation on a committee is an excellent way to acquaint yourself with the inner workings of the Association and contribute to the betterment of SAR and the community. Committee members accept the responsibility for carrying out the goals of their committee and meeting attendance is part of that responsibility. Most committees meet monthly and adhere to a strict attendance policy.

You must apply in order to be considered for appointment and are subject to the Administrative Screening Policy.

Please complete and submit the following information by Thursday, September 30, 2021. Late submitted applications may not be considered for initial appointments, but may be considered if the committee is not initially full.

The 2022 SAR President will make committee appointments based on your experience, the number of positions available, and the diversity of the committee members. Due to committee size limits, you are not guaranteed an appointment, even if you have previously served on that committee. You will receive an email notification should you be appointed and what committee(s) you have been appointed to.

If the committee you requested is full, your application will be retained in case a position becomes available or you may be asked to serve on a different committee at your discretion.

Information on available SAR Committees are listed below.

Please contact Lyndsey Harank, LHarank@sacrealtor.org, should you need assistance completing this application.

The REALTOR® Action Fund (RAF) raises money from members to help support candidates who are favorable to real estate and housing.
What is REALTOR® Action Fund (RAF)? RAF is a vital service for YOU and YOUR business. Did you know that 30% of your RAF contribution supports local issues that will affect your livelihood? By contributing to the REALTOR® Action Fund, you are helping to protect private property rights through C.A.R.'s lobbying efforts, and local issues and candidate campaigns. Your participation will keep this going! Contributions to the REALTOR® Action Fund have stopped:

1. Point of sale mandates that could have cost the homeowner $1000s of dollars reducing their equity or may have even prevented the sale from going through.
2. Direct taxing of REALTOR® commissions and other services related to the transaction.
3. Political candidates who are against building housing and against REALTOR® issues.

Together we can successfully educate and encourage REALTORS® to contribute in the REALTOR® Action Fund.
