Committee Participation

A large proportion of my business is representing commercial/investment clients. A few years ago, I began attending as a general audience member the open sessions of the Commercial Committee. I liked what I saw there and applied for a position on this NAR committee. This morning, there I was, seated at the table, participating in the deliberations! This is a great group of talent led by Chair Lori Burger, and Vice Chair Tray Bates. Liaison is Dan Wagner. And so capably administered by Jean Maday! There’s a wealth of information these folks are focused on sharing. I encourage everyone to watch the areas you have an interest in, ask the members of the committee lots of questions, and pursue your dreams!
