The success of our Association is determined in great part by our members participation on the various committees for 2021. This is a great opportunity to get more acquainted with some of your colleagues, and to make a difference for our membership and our community!
Take a moment to see which committees this year we are looking for additional help. I look forward to working with any volunteers!

Purpose: The Young Professionals Network (YPN) was founded at the National Association of Realtors® level in 2006 with the idea of supporting young real estate practitioners and giving them an opportunity to become involved in their profession and have a chance to build leadership skills. Since that time, State and Local Associations have developed chapters. With the outlook that "Youth is a State of Mind", EDCAR established its chapter a few years ago opening their network to anyone interested in becoming part of the YPN.
Purpose: Honor Our Troops, (H.O.T.) raises funds to send care packages to military men and women from El Dorado County who are serving in the Middle East. Funds are raised through various events including an All American Breakfast in January and a Spaghetti Feed in October. The community is invited to participate in these events.
