Additional Membership Information
The principals of a real estate firm must first join a REALTOR® association before any non-principal can join. Principals are defined as: sole proprietors; partners in a partnership; corporate officers or majority shareholders of a corporation; or branch office managers acting on behalf of the principal.
Once the principal(s) decide to join the REALTOR® association, then all agents, brokers and appraisers that are licensed or affiliated with him or her have the option of also joining as members of the association.
Each REALTOR® Firm has a "Managing Broker" licensed by the State of Indiana who represents the firm/branch office. If any agent or appraiser affiliated with the firm choose not to be a LRAOR REALTOR® Member, the DR must provide a waiver of membership certifying the agent is affiliated under their license with another Association/MLS in good standing.
If any principal who otherwise qualifies for REALTOR® membership decides not to join the REALTOR® association, then none of the individuals affiliated with the firm can be REALTOR® members of the association.
The principal(s) have what is called "board of choice," which means he or she can decide which REALTOR® association(s) in the state where the office is located (or contiguous to that state) to join.
