NAR Directors
The government of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) is vested in the Board of Directors.  The State of Oregon is represented by members on the national Board of Directors. The role of an NAR Director mirrors that of a State Director but on a national level. NAR Directors attend two national meetings (Mid-Year Legislative Meeting and Annual Conference) and the Region 12 Annual Conference, and they report back to the State on activities undertaken there.

Oregon’s NAR Directors include:

  • Current President- appointment- 1 year term
  • 2 Association members plus additional Oregon REALTORS® members based on membership count assessed annually- elected by Board of Directors--three-year term
  • Large Board members based on membership count assessed annually--elected by the large Board--two-year term
  • Past NAR Officers-not specific to Oregon but happen to be held by Oregonians due to their roles in the greater REALTOR® organization.
