Committees & Output Groups

The O2 structure was adopted in 2012 as the guiding governance structure of the Missouri REALTORS®. O2, which stands for Outreach and Output was implemented to help align our committee structure with its new mission. O2 is focused on increasing member value and providing a nimble structure that can react in today's fast-moving industry. Since implementing O2, Missouri REALTORS® has reached new milestones in an unprecedented amount of time. The best part about O2 is that is allows all members to play a part and have a voice. Take a look at the O2 structure and get involved by joining an Output Group or applying for a leadership position.
