Please discuss portability of member records as it relates to membership under board of choice.

At the 1996 Midwinter Meetings, the NAR Board of Directors approved a Statement of Membership Policy and amendments to NAR’s Membership Qualification Criteria to authorize associations (at their discretion) to consider information received from other associations when determining whether an applicant satisfies the association’s membership requirements. This would be a file of information that would follow REALTORS® from board to board throughout their professional career and would include information such as prior violations of the Code of Ethics or other membership duties, and information related to unpaid arbitration awards or unpaid financial obligations to other associations or MLSs. Associations are required to share this information with other associations (when so requested), and associations receiving such information may, but are not required to, consider information in such files in determining whether an applicant satisfies the association’s membership requirements. This responds to a primary concern of associations under board of choice that some members may shift membership from association to association to avoid accountability under the Code of Ethics and other membership duties.
