October

Application Deadline: REALTOR® Emeritus 
Dates: 10/02/2019 
October 2nd is the deadline to complete certification forms for REALTOR® Emeritus status, which recognizes REALTOR® and REALTOR®-Associate members with 40 years of continuous membership along with committee service participation.

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. 

REALTOR® Emeritus qualifications are changing soon!

FOR 2019 ONLY, members may qualify for Emeritus status if they 1) Have held membership in the National Association as a REALTOR®, REALTOR-ASSOCIATE®, or both, for a cumulative period of forty (40) years; AND 2) have completed at least one (1) year of service at the National, state or local level.
Beginning in 2020, the service qualification will change so that at least one (1) year of service at the National level only will be accepted for Emeritus status. Service at the state or local level will not be considered.  2019 is your last opportunity to apply for REALTOR® Emeritus status with the state or local service requirement.

November

REALTOR® Designation Awareness Month  
Dates: 11/01/2019 -- 11/30/2019 
Recognized annually in the month of November, REALTOR® Designation Awareness Month was established to encourage members of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) to start or complete an officially endorsed designation or certification through NAR or one of its Institutes, Societies and Councils. Underscoring the importance education plays in a real estate professional’s career, NAR is dedicated to helping REALTORS® enhance their professional skills in order to stay ahead of the competition — day-in and day-out. Successful agents need to keep current on issues, technology, changing legalities, and other aspects of real estate to keep pace. Designation and certification courses offer this knowledge, and many of the courses can also be applied to Continuing Education (CE) requirements. See a complete list of NAR's official designations and certifications.
