Beginning in 2018, NAR is using a new, streamlined process for verification of bylaws compliance. Our goal is to provide state and local REALTOR® associations with the best resources to allow them to adopt and implement policies and procedures that result in the most effective governance of their organizations. From now on, there is no need for your association to submit your bylaws for review by NAR staff. You just need to certify that your association bylaws include the five (5) mandatory provisions that NAR requires to be adopted verbatim. Those mandatory provisions are:
2. Code of Ethics: Professional Standards and Training
3. REALTOR® Trademark
4. State and National Membership
