                     HONOR SOCIETY
      To recognize Professionalism through Participation, Education and Service

PURPOSE: The primary purpose of the Missouri Association of REALTORS® Honor Society is to recognize
and reward high professional achievement of members who seek excellence through education and who
voluntarily contribute their time and skills to Board and Association leadership. The people who bring credit to
the real estate industry statewide deserve the special recognition of their peers, and the Missouri Association of
REALTORS® Honor Society is designed to bring them that recognition.
ELIGIBILITY: The Honor Society program is designed for both new REALTORS® and REALTOR-
ASSOCIATES® and for those who have held membership for many years. Very little recognition is given for
past achievement, since the basic concept is to award active qualification points for professional education and
for REALTOR® activity that ultimately results in better service to clients and customers.
QUALIFICATIONS: The qualification period is from January 1, 2007 to December 31, 2007. Applications
must be submitted to MAR no later than January 31, 2008. Honor Society membership is not a one-time
qualification. Yearly qualification is required in order to encourage continuing activity and involvement. A
minimum of 150 points per year is needed in order to qualify or maintain membership. An application form is
on the following page. It lists, in detail, the point breakdown by category. To apply for membership, you need
to complete the form and return it to MARHS, PO BOX 1327, COLUMBIA, MO 65205 or fax it. The Missouri
Association of REALTORS® may, at its discretion, require complete documentation of a member’s
participation by requesting letters from Board/Association leadership to verify qualification. Complete the
following application and return to MARHS before January 31, 2008. Your total points, marked in the spaces
in the left columns must total 150 or more to qualify you for membership. To qualify, applicants must have
points in Sections A, B, and E. Also, applicants should have points in either F or G.
AWARDS: Certificates of membership, if requested, in the Honor Society will be sent to the Local Board
President or AE by March 31, 2008, for presentation at a Local Board function, so that the individuals
recognized as members may be seen by their peers as high achievers. Pins will be mailed with certificates. In
case of loss, pins are available for purchase through MAR, as long as supplies last at $3.00 per pin.
