Want an opportunity to boost your industry knowledge and expand your network? You can do both by volunteering for a TAR committee.

What’s a TAR committee? It’s a group of volunteer REALTOR® members making decisions that affect different areas of the Texas real estate industry: commercial, property management, member benefits, MLS and technology, political affairs, professional development, and more. See a list of the committees and read more about what each does on

The more involved I’ve become, the more benefits I’ve experienced. I’ve met many great people and learned about everything from how to handle my business to how to be a better leader. Plus, getting engaged helps protect our industry and make sure it moves in the right direction. I encourage you to submit your application, due July 3, and start your volunteer journey now. Here are a few of my tips to make your application stand out:

  1. Explain what your passion is and why you’d be a good fit.
  2. List the local committees have you served on.
  3. Update your profile on
  4. Communicate with your local association about your interest, as well as the current leaders and staff liaison on your selected committee.
