Arizona REALTORS® is member directed and staff driven. We are governed by our Executive Committee, Board of Directors and Primary Committees. The Primary Committees are as follows.
Business Technology and Communications
The Business Services and Technology committee (BST) coordinates association activities relating to the technology and processes of information flow among those served by the state association. Important member benefits include Arizona REALTORS® Single Sign-On, TransactionDesk® (a powerful system which allows our members to efficiently fill out and manage contracts), and Tech Helpline.
James Adams, Executive Committee Liaison
Eric Gibbs, Sr, Executive Committee Liaison
Legislative and Political Affairs
The Legislative & Political Affairs Committee (LPA) works to protect private property rights, promote REALTOR® interests at all levels of government, and mobilize members to legislative and political action.
This includes work on needed legislation, legislative monitoring, lobbying (including “calls for action”), issues campaigns, issues research, member awareness and political training programs, and raising and disbursing funds for RAPAC and the Issues Mobilization Fund.

The Professional & Business Development Committee (PBD) provides tools to assist members and associations to be the best prepared and perform to the highest standards. The committee oversees education activities like the GRI program, Leadership Development (LTA), Broker University (seminars geared for brokers/managers), MRE Society and remote educational sessions across Arizona. Major events include the Arizona REALTORS® Convention, Leadership Conference and the Industry Partners Conference — which brings together fellow finance and closing professionals for discussion and education.

The Risk Management Committee (RMC) implements and oversees programs designed to mitigate risk for consumers, as well as all Arizona REALTORS®. The RMC is responsible for developing and maintaining standardized real estate contracts and forms which are used in a majority of Arizona real estate transactions. The group is also charged with professional standards (ethics) administration and adjudication, dispute resolution, Legal Hotline management and oversight, along with educating members in risk management techniques and applicable laws that affect their practice.
