Emeritus Status to Require National Service

November 14, 2013

Beginning in 2019, REALTOR® Emeritus, an honor eligible to those who have been members of the National Association of REALTORS® for at least 40 years, will also require at least one year of service specifically at the national level.

NAR’s Board of Directors passed an amendment Monday during its meeting in San Francisco requiring one year of service on a national committee, which includes serving as a director or serving as a Federal Political Coordinator (FPC), for those seeking emeritus status.

The current requirement for REALTORS® Emeritus status is 40 years of membership and one year of service, including federal, state, or local association officer and committee positions.  The state or local provision will end in five years.

REALTOR® Emeritus members receive a dues waiver and are exempt from the quadrennial ethics training requirement.
