“The best advice I was given was to get involved at your local association of REALTORS® and to always continue to develop yourself.” —Kim Mangham-Barelare, 2017 BAR Vice President

 

Member Meetings Matter

Meetings give members of the Birmingham Association of REALTORS® a voice. Attend meetings, participate in discussions and vote on crucial association business.

Leadership Meetings: The BAR Executive Committee and Board of Directors meet monthly to discuss and transact vital fiscal, governance and other business.

Membership Meetings: Each year the membership gathers for lunch meetings. Bylaws require at least one annual membership meeting in August or September. The membership may consider amendments to bylaws at a membership meeting.

Committee Meetings: The association has several standing committees (approved by the Board of Directors) and special temporary committees (approved by the Executive Committee and Board of Directors) that fulfill necessary purposes. They meet as often as needed, though most meet monthly.

“Active involvement in your association makes it stronger, better. Don’t sit on the sidelines. Attend a meeting. Be a mentor. Join a committee.” —Gusty Gulas, 2017 BAR Treasurer
