Yes, we’re a 100+ year old organization serving real estate – no, we’re not a stodgy 100+ year old organization serving real estate.

Additionally, the coordinator will coordinate the LCRC approval process and provide reports as needed. Lots of variety – you won’t be bored!

Key Responsibilities:

  • Provide CREPAC special project support by handling Local Candidate Recommendation requests and inquiries from local associations.
