We Need YOU
The application period for 2019 ABoR committees has now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted an application.
If you didn't get a chance to submit an application, that's OK! We're kicking off a new campaign in January 2019 that will offer several new ways to get engaged with ABoR and drive our industry forward. We can't wait to share the details with you!
Are you a Central Texas REALTOR® with specialized expertise in finance, investing, advocacy, or association governance? Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity that will both enhance your career and make a difference for our Association?
Well, then ABoR needs YOU!
This November, ABoR is holding a Membership Call for 2019 committee opportunities that:
- Have open positions for 2019; and
- Require specialized expertise or experience in a specific subject area in order to participate.
This Membership Call will be followed by an additional Call for Engagement in 2019. Details are coming soon!

Committee Responsibilities & Requirements

Not all of ABoR's 2019 committees are listed here. Why?
Not all of our committees have open positions for 2019. Some engagement opportunities, such as our Legislative Management Team, are by appointment only. In addition, the ABoR Foundation is conducting a separate Membership Call for its 2019 Board of Directors and committees. Contact Foundation Coordinator Seunga Yu at firstname.lastname@example.org to apply.
How will the committee applications be vetted?
The ABoR Board will determine a process for vetting committee applications at the November 7, 2018 board meeting. ABoR Committee rosters for 2019 will be announced following the ABoR Board Meeting on December 2, 2018.
Why will there be an additional "Call for Engagement" for 2019?
While committees play an invaluable role in supporting ABoR operations, the limited number of committee seats available each year (typically less than 100) does not provide sufficient engagement opportunities for our 13,000+ members. In addition, we recognize that some of our members are prevented from volunteering with ABoR because they are not able to commit to a year-long, time-intensive volunteer role.
In short, ABoR needs a broader scope of engagement opportunities that meet our members where they are, and that's exactly what our 2019 Call for Engagement will be about. We're working hard on this new direction and are eager to share details with you soon! In the meantime, share your ideas on how ABoR can bring greater value to your membership on our Engage Portal.
