The REALTOR® Emeritus program is a special membership status honoring those REALTORS® who have maintained their membership for 40 years or more. Emeritus members receive a certificate and pin to show their status, payment of National Association dues is waived for the remainder of their membership, and they are exempt from the Code of Ethics Training requirement.
For 2019 only, members may qualify for Emeritus status if they:
- Have held membership in the National Association as a REALTOR®, REALTOR-ASSOCIATE®, or both, for a cumulative period of forty (40) years; AND
- Have completed at least one (1) year of service* at the National, state or local level.
The Upcoming Changes
Beginning in 2020, the service qualification will change so that at least one (1) year of service at the National level will be the only service accepted for Emeritus status. Service at the state or local level will not be considered. Please note, service is defined as serving as an officer, director, committee member, federal political coordinator, president’s liaison or regional coordinator to a country with which NAR holds a reciprocal agreement.
2019 is your last opportunity to apply for REALTOR® Emeritus status with the state or local service requirement!
