National Association of Realtors board restructuring goes down in defeat

Delegates pass CEO search strategy, but vote down proposals to allocate more board seats to state associations
  • A spirited debate at NAR’s delegate body meeting Monday surrounded a proposal that would allocate more seats to state associations and fewer seats to local associations.
  • A constitutional amendment giving the NAR leadership team the authority to create a search committee (to find and select NAR's next CEO) passed without discussion.

ORLANDO — Who is best suited to decide who represents 1.2 million agent and broker members on the board of the National Association of Realtors? That was the subject of a spirited debate at NAR’s delegate body meeting Monday at the trade group’s annual conference. Another important decision — how to go about selecting the successor to NAR’s CEO, Dale Stinton — was also made, but that decision involved no debate and passed swiftly.
