Greater Regional alliance of realtors®
Chapter Advisory Groups
In order for GRAR to meet the needs of all of its members, most specifically as it relates to members in different geographic locations, GRAR has created Chapters as sub-units of the Association to enhance delivery of its services and benefits to all members, to advance its mission, and to enhance communication between GRAR and its members, thereby preparing members for leadership roles at all levels of GRAR.
Chapters serve as a venue for members to get together, exchange views, and attend continuing education courses and social activities. Local chapters also regularly interact in a local community to provide programs or activities that directly impact the community and the REALTOR® member. And, most importantly, a local chapter is aware of and sensitive to the needs that are unique to its community. Each Chapter is led by a Chapter Advisory Group, which is a 5 to 8 member group of chapter members who have been appointed or elected to take a proactive role in helping determine the direction and focus of its Chapter.
