To recognize Professionalism through Participation, Education and Service
PURPOSE: The primary purpose of the Missouri Association of REALTORS® Honor Society is to recognize and reward high professional achievement of members who seek excellence through education and who voluntarily contribute their time and skills to Board and Association leadership. The people who bring credit to the real estate industry statewide deserve the special recognition of their peers. The Missouri Association of REALTORS® Honor Society is designed to bring them that recognition.
ELIGIBILITY: The Honor Society program is designed for both new REALTORS® and REALTOR-ASSOCIATES® and for those who have held membership for many years. Very little recognition is given for past achievement, since the basic concept is to award active qualification points for professional education and for REALTOR® activity that ultimately results in better service to clients and customers.
QUALIFICATIONS: The qualification period is from January 1st to December 31st, 2012. Applications will be accepted between December 1st, 2012 and February 1st, 2013 –NO EXCEPTIONS. Honor Society membership is not a one-time qualification. Yearly qualification is required in order to encourage continuing activity and involvement. A minimum of 150 points per year is needed in order to qualify or maintain membership. A link to the application form is below. It lists, in detail, the point breakdown by category. The Missouri Association of REALTORS® may at its discretion, require complete documentation of a member’s participation by requesting letters from Board/Association leadership to verify qualification.
To qualify, applicants must have points in the following sections: Local Board / Association Activity, State Association Activity, and Political Involvement And must have points in Education. No Exceptions.
AWARDS: Certificates of membership and pins/year plates/plaques/danglers will be sent to the local Board/Association President or AE, for presentation at a local Board function, so that the individuals recognized as members may be seen by their peers as high achievers. In case of loss, pins are available for purchase through MAR, as long as supplies last at $3 per pin.
The application period for 2012 submissions is now closed.
