Affiliate Committee


SPAAR’s Affiliate Committee works to increase Affiliate member involvement in the Association by developing new programs and services and offering a variety of education and networking opportunities that bring Affiliates and REALTOR® members together.


Core Activities

Who? What? How?

A collaboration with SPAAR’s Metro YPN Committee to create a resource open house and expert panel.  This event is designed to bring REALTOR® members together with Affiliate members during a Resource Fair Open House, where members can build and expand their resource-toolboxes through meeting and talking with a variety of industry professionals.  The expert panel during the open house brings more value to members who can benefit from gaining insight and having tough questions answered by fellow successful veteran REALTORS®.

Ask An Expert

A quarterly meeting, open to all SPAAR members.  This short, 1-hour meeting includes Agent-to-Agent business networking, a rapid-fire few minutes of promoting new listings and buyer needs, and an expert Affiliate presentation with Q&A.  REALTORS® are encouraged to ask the questions they’ve longed to find answers for… no matter how general or specific.  SPAAR Affiliate Members may email Kristin to register as a Sponsor or Presenter.

Cheers For Charity

A casual networking and fundraising event hosted by SPAAR’s Affiliate Committee each year at a local establishment. Attendees are encouraged to network and join in a fun raffle for a chance to win a gift-card prize pack. All proceeds benefit a chosen nonprofit charity.

Wine & Dine Experience

A unique wine tasting event that pairs hand-picked fine wines with multiple courses of gourmet food samples. Wine & Dine is the most delicious night of the year and boasts fun silent auction and wine pull fundraising elements to support a local nonprofit charity.
