Report of the Law & Policy Committee: The Commission reported that the Law & Policy Committee met on Friday, September 30, 2022, and provided a brief overview of the meeting.

General Update and BICUP Course Topics: Staff reviewed with the Commission the list of possible 2023-2024 Update course topics based upon suggestions provided by Commission members, staff, licensees, educators, and the Education Advisory Committee to date. The Commission would like there to be information in the Update courses for BICs that do not oversee other agents and suggested adding equity issues and fair housing to the list of topics. Staff stated that they would present a revised exhibit in
November with a list of topics, and will then send a survey to members to vote on which topics they would like for the Update courses. In December, the Commission will vote on the final topics. The Commission stated that staff should consider expanding topics to include commercial real estate issues since the Update is geared toward the residential broker. The Commission commended staff on the great job they did working with the Education Advisory Committee.
