Finance Committee: The Finance Committee provides general oversight and direction to the Board of Directors regarding the financial and budgetary aspects of the Association and MLS operations. For 2021, we have a 1-year term and a 2-year term available. The Finance Committee meets approximately 6 times per year with meeting dates set by the Finance Committee Chair/Treasurer. Members of the Finance Committee are also invited to participate in leadership training activities of the Association.
Grievance Committee: The Grievance Committee conducts a preliminary review of disciplinary complaints to determine whether the complaint should be forwarded to a Hearing Panel of the Professional Standards Committee. Committee members serve three year terms. The committee meets as needed to review complaints as they come in as well as to discuss trending ethical issues in the business. The committee meets approximately monthly.
Community and Member Engagement Group: The Community and Member Engagement Group plans and participates in community service and outreach initiatives that further the mission and strategic plan of CCIAOR and help strengthen member involvement with the Association. The committee meets monthly for 1-hour meetings as well as participation and involvement in events planned by the group.
Diversity and Inclusion Committee (NEW): The purpose of the newly-formed Diversity & Inclusion Committee is to increase awareness of fair housing issues, encourage diversity and eliminate intolerance and bias among real estate practitioners and the public, teach real estate practitioners how to operate an inclusive real estate practice, and to help grow diverse leadership. This committee will meet every other month for approximately an hour and a half to complete the scope of their work
Vacation Rental Committee: The Vacation Rental Committee coordinates resources, benefits, education, and advocacy efforts related to REALTOR® brokerages that manage vacation rentals. The group advises the CCIAOR Board of Directors on activities and benefits to offer members and on public policy related to the vacation rental business. This committee meets every other month with meetings lasting approximately an hour and a half. This committee will meet virtually.
Government Affairs Committee (NEW): As our advocacy efforts grow, we need a group of REALTORS® who are knowledgeable about and have a keen interest in how real estate and public policy intersect in areas such as zoning bylaws, land use regulations and affordable housing. The composition and meeting schedule for this group is still to be determined, but if you are interested in getting involved, please indicate so on your application and we will reach out to you when we move forward.
MLS Advisory Group: The MLS Advisory Group is a representative body of the CCIMLS membership and advises staff and the Board of Directors on the various functions of the MLS including issues related to rules, data integrity and products to ensure more accurate data, better cooperation among participants, and better products provided to the participants and subscribers. 15 CCIMLS members comprise this group including representatives from all regions of the Cape as well as small and large brokerage representatives. This committee meets every other month for approximately two hours.
