What You Will Do as a Regional Vice Chair

As Regional Vice Chair, you will be part of GLAR's volunteer leadership responsible for helping to shape and guide the association through the ever changing world of the real estate industry and will serve alongside a Regional Chair who has prior board experience.

Regional Vice Chairs work hand-in-hand with GLAR’s professional staff to serve the public and member’s interest, set and guide policy decisions and the goals and objectives of the association and will gain valuable expertise about the real estate industry. You will be in line to assume the Regional Chair position in year two of your two year term.

This restructuring of the board was implemented as a part of GLAR’s regionalization plan as a way to amplify your local community’s voice in GLAR’s leadership, helping to bring your community’s needs, priorities and individual characteristics to the board. Your presence ensures that your region’s needs are met through GLAR’s programming, advocacy efforts and strategic vision. GLAR’s five regions are:

  • Region 1: Beaches
  • Region 2: Culver City
  • Region 3: Beverly Hills
  • Region 4: WEHO / Eagle Rock
  • Region 5: Downtown / East Side LA

Responsibilities of the Regional Vice Chair

The basic responsibilities of a member of the board serving as a regional Vice Chair are:

  • As a board member, your responsibility is to provide guidance and expertise to the organization to help respond to industry issues, anticipate and adapt to trends and keep the association relevant to the REALTOR®.
  • Be able to attend the six board meetings per year. The board made a recent change to meeting every other month to be more accommodating to a REALTOR®’s busy schedule. Many board meetings may also be attended virtually through Zoom, unless specifically noted otherwise.
  • Attending association sponsored events on behalf of the Board of Directors
  • Keeping abreast of trends and events in the industry and offering your input on how they may impact REALTORS®
