Did you know there are a lot of opportunities when you get involved and volunteer on a BRAR committee?
Your service will benefit in helping to shape the Association’s direction, but you also have much to gain. It can increase your self-confidence by providing you with a sense of accomplishment, improve your skills, and help you make new business and personal connections.
Reasons to volunteer
Build your network
Serving as a volunteer at BRAR will introduce you to professionals from across the business community. Not only will you meet people from BRAR, but you will have a chance to work with people from different industries. Volunteering can expose you to a wide range of people, including influential leaders and potential mentors.
Become an advocate for our industry and community
Volunteering enables you to become an integral part of raising the profile of the BRAR organization and our industry. You’ll get the opportunity to represent our association, our industry and our community, which can be a great source of achievement and fulfilment.
Gain a new skillset
You will be able to join committees and activities, which help you expand on your skillset and utilize talents you wouldn’t otherwise be able to. Learn how to organize an association event by volunteering to support a conference or a fundraising event.
Grow your leadership skills
Volunteering is a great way to work on your leadership skills. Our association needs committed volunteers to supervise certain activities or groups of volunteers. You could also become a BRAR leader by making important decisions to solve problems or make improvements in your association and community.
Personal and professional development
Volunteering is especially beneficial to young professionals. It can expose you to professional experiences that you wouldn’t otherwise gain at an early stage of your career – you could be making decisions on finance, governance, and advocacy issues that affect our association and the real estate industry.
