The Palm Springs Regional Association of REALTORS® has been assisting real estate professionals and their affiliated businesses in our desert communities of the Coachella Valley since 1929, and gives back to those communities in which we all live and work.
The committees of the Palm Springs Regional Association are the heart of the organization in that they aid the elected leadership in developing the future direction for the Board of Realtors. Ideas begin at the committee level and motions/recommendations are taken to the Board of Directors for approval. Once approved, a combination of committee members and staff implement the objective.
This committee, chaired by Barry Rodgers (firstname.lastname@example.org), focuses on the needs of the affiliate member and identifies ways in which the use of the affiliates for REALTORSR related services can be enhanced. It also provides the affiliate with a vehicle for communicating special needs to the Board of Directors.
Chaired by John Burge, this committee reviews the quarterly financial statements for the Board. The committee works with the Executive Officer in developing budgets and setting dues/fees to fund annual budgets.
This committee is chaired by Dwayne Carrier (Dwayne@dwaynecarrier.com).
