Maryland REALTORS® Bylaws provide for appointment of a Credentials Committee.
The Credentials Committee's purpose is to ensure that members who want to run for elected office meet the established qualifications. The goal is to create an environment where all motivated members are encouraged to pursue leadership positions; this streamlined process accomplishes this.
The state association Board of Directors also established policies that explain the Credentials Committee process as well as the timeline, criteria, and campaign rules. These guidelines will help the committee uniformly and consistently review applications, to determine whether candidates are qualified to serve in their desired elected positions.
Applications for elective office are due February 1, 2023.
Below you will find a summary of the process and the associated documents.
