What is the Composition of the Maryland REALTORS® Board of Directors?The Board of Directors includes categories of members. Maryland REALTORS® Officers, including the Immediate Past President, as well as one Presidential and one President-Elect Appointee, serve one year terms.
Each of the three largest firms in the state as of June 1st has one seat, which must be held by a principal or a member of management appointed by the firm. Large firm appointees serve a one-year term.
Local associations/boards each appoint one representative of their choice, who may be any member in good standing. Local board representatives serve a one year term.
Local associations/boards in each of Maryland REALTORS®’s nine districts are also represented on the board by a District Vice President (DVP), selected by the association/board or association/boards in that region. DVPs serve one-year terms and are limited to two consecutive terms.
Three At-Large Directors serve one-year terms. The At-Large Directors are elected by the outgoing Board at its meeting in September, and are limited to two consecutive terms.
Two Directors, appointed by the President for two-year staggered terms, who are recommended by the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Advisory Group and who are representative of Multi-cultural real estate communities.
It is particularly important for you to keep in mind that as a Director, your vote may not be dictated either directly or indirectly by your company, your local association or your personal or business interests. Whether you are an at-large director, a local board representative, a large firm representative, or serve in any other capacity, you are obligated to act in the best interests of the Association rather than for the benefit of any one group or organization.
