The Bylaws & Policies of the Reno/Sparks Association of REALTORS®


A professional association is set up to accomplish certain definite purposes for its members.  It therefore must be governed by certain policies.  The purpose of this manual is to define the policies and procedures for the operating committees and the staff of the Reno/Sparks Association of REALTORS®. The scope of the manual will include all Board policies that are required to support the current Bylaws of the Association and those approved policies necessary to administer  the Boards day to day operation.  The manual will also include a procedural guide for all standing committees within the Association.  A secondary purpose of the manual is to provide leadership and members with a standard guide to professionalism in the management of the Association.
