Core standards raise bar for all, REALTOR® leaders are told

COre Standards Part 2

REALTOR® leaders listen to a discussion on Core Standards during a meeting in Washington, D.C., during the 2016 Midyear Legislative Meetings & Expo.

REALTORS® heard an update on Core Standards at the Local Leadership Idea Exchange on Tuesday, May 10, 2016.

A key message: Every member pays the same amount of dues to NAR, and it isn’t right for some members to get more out of their associations than others.

NAR launched its Core Standards program several years ago, and it outlines the essential functions REALTOR® associations had to meet to best serve their members. Those in attendance were told that standards would increase in the future.

The 2016 Midyear Legislative Meetings & Expo provides REALTOR® leaders an opportunity to discuss association policy as well as lobby lawmakers in Washington, D.C., on property rights issues.
