National Director

National Directors represent Missouri REALTORS® at the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) level. Members of the NAR Board of Directors have duties and responsibilities of governing our association, and the association counts on directors to participate as we deliberate issues that impact our members’ daily business lives. NAR appoints a certain number of directors annually, per state, based on membership count. Within Missouri, when one or more vacancies exists for the office of National Director, nominations for candidates are solicited and accepted from all Local Boards/Associations of Missouri REALTORS®. National Director terms are three years.

To inquire about NAR Director opportunities with Missouri REALTORS®, contact Cara Harmon at 800-403-0101 ext. 117.
