Our Committees, Task Forces, & Work Groups

Our Committees, Task Forces, & Work Groups

The strength of North Shore REALTORS® is in our member volunteers, without whom the association could not grow and thrive. The call for committee volunteers is sent out each year in the fall. Appointments to committees, task forces, and work groups are made by the NSR Leadership in November/December.

If you are interested in getting involved please email NSR CEO, Patrick Maguire for more information and to submit your name for a future committee or work group.
