Honorary Life Members and REALTOR® Emeritus Status

Honorary Life Member

Honorary Life Member is an extraordinary achievement. It is the highest recognition of service the Association can bestow on a REALTOR®. This achievement is in tribute to their professionalism, expertise and dedicated willingness to serve their peers and industry.

To be considered for this honor, an individual must have been an active TAR member for at least 30 years. During that time, they must accumulate at least 15 total years of volunteer service to the Tucson Association of REALTORS® in any combination of: Association Officer, Director, Committee Chairperson/Member, representative of the Association at the state level, Arizona Association of REALTORS® (AAR) or at the national level, National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).

As Honorary Life Members, TAR waives the member’s annual dues and assessments. At the state and national levels, the association pays their dues and assessments.
