CREA’s 2024-2025 Volunteer Committees

CREA’s 10 volunteer board and operational committees act as resources to our Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and help shape the decisions and directions we take.

For example, the Federal Affairs Committee helps shape our federal advocacy efforts and REALTOR® recommendations, which have been largely acted upon by the federal government.

The Marketing and Communications Committee provides high level strategic direction and feedback to CREA’s marketing and communications activities, including the national advertising campaign.

Launched in 2022, CREA’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Committee provides critical input and REALTOR® perspectives into the development of our association’s first-ever ESG strategy. In 2024, the committee will oversee the operationalization of the strategy, including setting measurable social and environmental impact goals and reporting our progress.

The application process is open to all REALTORS® in good standing with CREA as well as board and association staff members. Applications will be accepted until Friday, February 16, 2024.
