  NVR 2024 committee applications available  

REALTOR® members can apply to a 2024 Committee and help shape the direction Nevada REALTORS®. Now through September 30, members may submit their applications in order to be considered for a committee member position. 

NVR members are encouraged to submit multiple requests in order to be considered for all committees they have an interest in serving on. However, members will only receive limited appointments, per current policy. Applications are compiled for review by NVR Officers during the association’s committee selection process.

To the extent possible, the composition of committees shall be representative of the general membership. While broad-based representation is desirable, this should not be construed as limiting the president from appointing the most knowledgeable and competent individuals available to serve on committees. Click here to apply for a Nevada REALTORS 2024 Committee.

  NAR fighting for freedom of REALTORS to work where, when and how they want  

Some say the true definition of freedom is being your own boss. That’s why independent contractor status—which has faced federal challenges in the past—is so predominant in real estate. The National Association of REALTORS® has made it a top priority for years to protect the independent contractor status of its members, which enables them to work uninhibited by burdensome regulations.

However, litigation and federal and state legislative action are threatening many workers’ ability to be classified as independent contractors, including real estate professionals. Last October, the Department of Labor released a proposed rule reinterpreting how a worker is classified under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Although the proposed rule didn’t impact the classification of real estate professionals as independent contractors, the legal landscape makes the future uncertain. Click here to continue reading.
