Committee Structure Update (2022)
In an effort to make Atlanta REALTORS® committees more inclusive, an ARA task force was assigned to review the existing committee structure. 工作组提出了以下建议，并在董事会会议上获得批准 May 18, 2022. 这些变化影响到ARA董事会和委员会的出勤政策，并立即生效, so please review carefully:
- ARA committees will no longer be made up of Voting Members and Contributing Members. Any ARA member will have the opportunity to join a committee and vote, as long as they adhere to the attendance policy.
- From the time a member joins a committee or the Board of Directors, 在日历年内三次缺席该委员会的定期会议将被视为退出该委员会或董事会.
- For the purpose of fulfilling attendance requirements, 通过音频或视频会议的参与不应被视为缺席，只要他们的摄像头为视频会议打开. No member shall be allowed to participate in the committee or Board of Directors meeting via video conference while operating a moving vehicle.
- For the purposes of tracking attendance, 任何委员如在主席宣布会议秩序后超过五分钟才入会，应视为缺席. It is recommended that each committee chair announce the five-minute mark at every meeting, so there is no misunderstanding between staff and volunteers.
- 如果一个立博体育赛事开会迟到超过五分钟，将被宣布为“缺席”，以便跟踪出席情况, 他们将不被允许对提交给委员会或董事会的任何动议进行投票 for consideration at that meeting.
