Welcome to the Volunteer Town Square

This page contains information on how to get involved nationally at Women's Council of REALTORS®.

A 30-minute webinar can be viewed on the Leadership Identification and Development process

Process: You will begin by filling out the volunteer application . Depending on which local Network you belong to, this will then go to your state leadership, RVP, or Governor along with the National headquarters staff.

Appointments will be made beginning in June 2019 for 2020 opportunities. Opportunities include (but are not limited to): liaison positions to NAR, finance & budget committee, project teams, leadership conference faculty, inspiration/pledge speakers at national meetings, election volunteers, trade show booth volunteers, and meeting ambassadors. 

The Council is a leadership organization, and it is our goal to develop business, industry and community leaders both locally and nationally and to contribute to your success. Consider getting involved nationally as part of your leadership journey.
