  2. Identify best practices and provide input to NAR staff supporting their efforts to create a governance policies and procedures toolkit that all associations can reference when reviewing their bylaws and policy manuals.
  3. Consider developing different Core Standards criteria for state associations and commercial overlay boards.
  4. Develop a mediation procedure and ombudsman program to assist associations in resolving disputes.
