Inclusion Task Force

The Inclusion Task Force consists of two co-chairs and a selection of invite only members decided by the Executive Committee. IR staff members include the CEO and Membership Administrator.

Idaho REALTORS® supports inclusion, as well as a continued commitment to Fair Housing as part of its core values. To be a strong voice for real estate in our communities, diversity in our leadership can help our associations represent all the communities and demographic groups in our market area. Making sure our association reflects and includes leaders who serve all parts of our market will make our associations better advocates for homeownership and private property rights. It will build our commitment to ethics and make sure our association is meeting member needs regardless of the communities they serve. The Inclusion Task Force will identify barriers to inclusion in Idaho and make recommendations to the EC for improving diversity within the State Association.
