The Grievance Committee meets when a complaint against a REALTORï¿½ member is received from another member or from a member of the public. The committee determines whether the complaint should be dismissed or forwarded for a disciplinary hearing. Thus the committee serves two important functions. First, to protect DAR members from frivolous complaints and second to preserve our goal of self policing and discipline to maintain high ethical standards. The 2012 Committee members are Marion Pontes (Chair), Laurie Wexner.
