REALTOR® Emeritus Program

REALTOR® Emeritus Status:

Any person who has held membership in the National Association as a REALTOR®, REALTOR-ASSOCIATE®, or a combination of both, for a cumulative period of 40 years in one or more Associations of REALTORS® is eligible for REALTOR® Emeritus status.

Upon approval by the Board of Directors of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION   OF REALTORS®, no further payment of dues is necessary to the National Association by the Member Association of which the REALTOR® Emeritus is a member.

The dues waiver does not take effect until the following 'dues season'. For example, members approved as Emeritus at the MidYear or Annual meetings in 2012 would have their dues waived starting in 2013 since dues are due and owing by the local associations as of January 1 each   year.

REALTOR® Emeritus members are exempt from the Quadrennial Ethics Training requirement.

Waiver of dues by the local Association and/or State Association is at the discretion of those entities. A standard certification form (provided by NAR) is necessary to begin the approval process  for a REALTOR® Emeritus candidate, which is to be filled out by the local Association. Any available documentation that would provide reasonable substantiation of 40 years' membership should be attached to the form.

After the conference each REALTOR® Emeritus member will receive a congratulatory letter, certificate and 40-year REALTOR® Emeritus lapel pin. This packet will be sent to the association to present to their members.

A standard certification form (provided by NAR) is necessary to begin the approval process for a REALTOR® Emeritus candidate, which is to be filled out by the local Association. Any available documentation that would provide reasonable substantiation of 40 years' membership should be attached to the form when it is returned to the National Association.

October 2, 2012, is the deadline for receipt of completed certification forms and supporting documentation for approval by the NAR Board of Directors at the November 2012 REALTORS Conference & Expo in November. Please attach supporting documentation to your submitted application.

Any application submitted after October 2 will not be approved until the follow year in May 2013.
