What is the Composition of the MAR Board of Directors?
The Board of Directors includes categories of members. MAR Officers, including the Immediate Past President, as well as two Presidential and two President-Elect Appointees, serve one year terms. Each of the six 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 boards/associations each appoint one representative of their choice, who may be any member in good standing. Local board representatives serve a one year term.
Local boards in each of MAR’s nine districts are also represented on the board by a District Vice President (DVP), selected by the board or boards in that region. DVPs serve two-year staggered terms and are limited to two consecutive terms.
Eight At-Large Directors serve two year, staggered terms. The At-Large Directors are elected by the outgoing Board at its meeting in September, and are limited to two consecutive terms.
Members who sit on NAR’s Executive Committee are automatically members of MAR’s Board of Directors, as well as our
Executive Committee for the duration of their NAR appointment.
Notices for open At-Large Director seats are sent to local boards and current members of the Board of Directors in April. Applicants must submit a letter and/or resume to the Nominating Committee, which interviews each applicant.
What are My Duties as an MAR Director?
You have a legal responsibility as a Director of MAR to act in the best interests of the Maryland Association of REALTORS®. Directors must avoid all conflict of interest (you will be asked to sign a form outlining the nature of conflicts or attesting that there are none); respect the confidentiality of certain discussions (you will be asked to sign a form stating that you agree to keep certain information confidential); stay informed about the issues affecting the Association; attend all meetings; and cast votes based upon what you believe is in the best interests of MAR.
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.
What is The Process for Seeking an Officer Position at MAR?
MAR has created guidelines for seeking office, which are found on the MAR website under Association Information/ Directory at www.mdrealtor.org. The MAR bylaws specify certain requirements for candidates; the guidelines also describe campaigning and the election process.
To receive a copy of the bylaws with the requirements for serving as an officer, and the guidelines for seeking office, contact Tracy Powelson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
