REALTOR Emeritus®

A REALTOR® Emeritus is 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 local, state or national Associations.

The dues waiver does not take affect until the following 'dues season'. For example, members approved as Emeritus at the NAR Mid-Year or Annual meetings in 2014 would have their dues waived starting in 2015. Upon approval, each REALTOR® Emeritus member will receive a congratulatory letter, certificate and 40-year REALTOR® Emeritus lapel pin.

If you believe that you fulfill the requirements to achieve REALTOR® Emeritus status as defined above and would like to have all future national, state & local dues waived, please download and submit the REALTOR® Emeritus application on the left.

If you have any questions regarding REALTOR® Emeritus status, you may contact Mendalyn Harper, Information Central Manager.

*All applications must be submitted by March 15th & September 15th of each year.

All applications will then be reviewed for approval by the National Association of REALTORS® at the mid-year meeting or the Annual Conference.
