Board of Directors

The OAR Board of Directors is made up of locally elected member representatives from each local association/board based on size along with the Executive Committee, NAR Directors, and active Past Presidents. The Board meets twice a year at the Spring and Fall Governance Meetings to approve the work of the Executive Committee and Key and Special Committees, including reviewing the Association financial documents, approving the annual strategic plan and budget, and electing new officers for the coming year.

Current Board of Directors

 

NAR Directors

The State of Oregon is currently represented by at least 8 members on the national Board of Directors. These are elected positions that are conferred by the State Board of Directors. The role of an NAR Director mirrors that of a State Director but on a national level. Attendance at two national meetings (Mid-Year and National Convention) is required along with reporting back to the State on activities undertaken there.

The number of directors the State is allocated is based on one per every 2,000 members. OAR currently has 8 directors. Of those positions, three are allocated to PMAR as a large local board – one for each 2,000 of their members.

The eight NAR Director positions are categorized as:

  1. State President – 1 year term
  2. State Allocated – 3 year term
  3. State Allocated – 3 year term
  4. State Allocated – 3 year term
  5. State Allocated – 3 year term
  6. Large Local Board (PMAR) – 2 year term
  7. Large Local Board (PMAR) – 2 year term
  8. Large Local Board (PMAR)  2 year term

Oregon also currently has three additional NAR Directors. For the most part, these positions are not specific to Oregon but happen to be held by Oregonians due to their roles in the greater REALTOR® organization.

  1. Alan Mehrwein (PMAR) – Presidential Appointee: Real Estate Specialty Representative
  2. Pat Kaplan (PMAR) – Past NAR Treasurer
  3. John Wallace (OAR) – State Association Executive
