REALTOR® Emeritus status is voted upon by the National Association of REALTORS® Board of Directors. When approved for emeritus status, the REALTOR® is also enrolled in the Omega Tau Rho honorary fraternity. Thus, to be honored with the OTR recipients at the state convention, the Emeritus nomination form should be submitted to NAR sometime in March, in order for the NAR Board of Directors to vote on it as its May meeting.
The REALTOR® Emeritus plaque and 40-year pin are awarded at the local board level. The state association recognizes the Omega Tau Rho status.
