Today, I was delighted to learn that I've been appointed to the Wisconsin REALTORS Association (WRA) Equal Housing Opportunity Committee!
The purpose of our state's EOC is to monitor and evaluate "legislative, legal and regulatory trends with respect to equal opportunity in housing". The EOC works with our WRA Public Policy Committee to help craft or influence pending or proposed legislation dealing with Fair Housing issues.
I feel honored to be invited to join this WRA committee. I believe that service on association committees and boards is more than an obligation. It's important for real estate professionals to "walk the talk" when it comes to Fair Housing and ethics issues. And service on a committee such as this one is, for me, part of that effort.
