This amendment updates the Bylaws to conform to N.A.R. Policy on board of choice as follows:
1. Out-of-state REALTORS® who join a local Association in California must affirmatively elect to join C.A.R. and pay state dues in order to get C.A.R. membership benefits.
2. Local Associations may accept out-of-state REALTORS® without having them join C.A.R. which, of course, means they will not have C.A.R. member benefits.
3. C.A.R. may accept out-of-state REALTORS® without these REALTORS® joining a local association in California.
Article II and the corresponding dues provisions in Article IX are updated to reflect this NAR Policy.
In addition, the terms “State Association”, “Corporation” and “the Association”, which all refer to the California Association of REALTORS®, Inc. have now been replaced with “C.A.R.” which is defined in Article I. There is now consistent terminology throughout the bylaws so there is no confusion in whether a term refers to a state association outside of California or to C.A.R.
These amendments include the ability to discipline secondary out-of-state C.A.R. members who have primary membership through a different state, as well as to bind them in arbitration.
