Advertising Committee

 

The purpose of this committee is to evaluate and recommend to the Board of Directors the most effective use of our advertising dollars for "Institutional Advertisement" to promote REALTORS in a positive manner within the community. 

 

Brevard's Children in Need


The purpose of this committee is to be the fundraising arm for the Space Coast Realtors Foundation. 

 

Community Outreach Committee

Budget & Finance Committee


Purpose: Prepares the annual Space Coast Association of REALTORS budget, and meets quarterly to recommend dues amounts, capital expenditures and budget modifications to the Directors.

 

Chaired by the Association's Treasurer, this committee will meet approximately four times. Needed skills are knowing how to read financials and working with numbers.

 

Future Facility Focus Group


Purpose: This committee will be responsible for evaluating our future building needs. Brevard County is 72 miles long with members from Sebastian to Mims. The task of this group is to look at our member demographics and evaluate the buildings needs to determine if our current two buildings meet the needs of our membership or if there is alternative that better meets our membership needs.

 

Commercial Investment Committee


Purpose:  To promote a comprehensive understanding of terms and procedures to aid REALTORS to better serve their Commercial clients.  This shall be accomplished through training; marketing and networking with established Commercial REALTORS® in our area. To inform our members of the latest economic trends and conditions that affects the commercial market. Allow our members to promote and present their commercial properties to the membership.

Government Affairs


Purpose: Studies legislation being considered locally, statewide, and nationally that affects property owners. Conducts functions to foster a good working relationship with our elected officials. 

 

RPAC (Realtor's Political Action Committee)


Purpose: Implements the annual RPAC fund-raising drives. 


Speaking on not being "Democrat" or "Republican", RPAC takes Government Affairs decisions and puts our money where our mouth is. Raising funds to be used to lobby efforts in Tallahassee and DC has been used to keep mortgage interest deductible, prohibiting cities and counties from charging individual real estate agents a business license fee and keeping "mega-banks" out of the real estate business.

Raising awareness and money is a special gift that you may have - and we need you. Our RPAC goal is $45,000! 


Looking forward we need to continue fighting for our rights, and the rights of our customers, and educating Realtors and consumers on the legislation that may impact our livelihood and homeownership!

 

Grievance Committee

Professional Standards


Purpose: Hears and decides complaints against REALTORS involving alleged violations of Code of Ethics. Hears and decides monetary business disputes between REALTORS® of different firms and REALTORS® and their clients.

These two committees are always well attended, and should be. Knowing and following the Code of Ethics is crucial to keeping our profession respected and esteemed. Every member should serve on one of these two committees at least once during their careers. Grievance will continue to have Team A and Team B, one that meets at Melbourne and the other in Merritt Island. Professional Standards training will be available before the first meeting.
