Committee Overview

The Federation of Exchange Accommodators (FEA) is the national trade association for 1031 exchange practitioners, and it is entirely a volunteer-based organization. We couldn’t do what we do without the assistance of the many FEA committees. The achievements of the FEA committees further the mission of the organization while providing networking and professional growth opportunities for members. All members are encouraged to join a committee and contribute to the success of the FEA.
