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 Technology and Communications Committee (BTC) 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.
