Agenda highlights

    • a rule change that would automatically place license holders on inactive
      status upon renewal after 6 months of expiration.
    • an increase in the number of times a broker must ensure a sponsored
      agents' assistance and coaching with new types of brokerage activity.
  • Contested disciplinary cases.
  • A welcome to three new Commissioners, honoring
    three outgoing Commissioners for their service.

The full agenda and materials will be posted online, as well as a livestreaming link for those who cannot attend the meeting in person.
