Purpose: The Grievance Committee receives ethics complaints and arbitration requests to determine if, taken as true on their face, a hearing is warranted. The Grievance Committee makes only such preliminary evaluation as is necessary to make these decisions. While the Grievance Committee has meetings, it does not hold hearings, and it does not decide whether members have violated the Code of Ethics. The Grievance Committee does not mediate or arbitrate business disputes.

Qualification Considerations: Committee members must be REALTORS®. Members are required to attend a training program designated by the Board of Directors prior to being selected to review ethics complaints and arbitration requests.
