Proposed Bylaws Changes

The following changes to the Bylaws of the Clarksville Association of REALTORS® has been recommended for adoption by the Board of Directors.

Suggested Revisions are on Page 14 of the Clarksville Association of REALTORS® Bylaws.

  • Items in red with a strikethrough are intended to be deleted.

  • Items in blue with an underline are intended to be inserted.

Recommendation #1: Changing the title of Secretary/Treasurer to Treasurer and naming the Executive Officer as the Secretary.

  • The rationale behind this change is that the Executive Officer already performs all of the functions of the Secretary as a part of the daily routine and is already designated as an Ex-Officio Officer. In practice, the Treasurer does not perform the duties of Secretary.

Recommendation #2: Changing the requirement of having 2 Principal Brokers or Broker/Owners on the board at all time to having 1 Principal, Managing Broker or Broker Owner at all times.

  • The rationale behind this is that the membership has grown in such proportions that there are fewer available Brokers that are qualified and willing to serve and reducing the requirement to 1 more Broker will open up more opportunities for new leadership.

The original rule for Principal Brokers to serve on the Board was instituted when CAR became an all-REALTOR® association in 1996 and was intended to aid in the transition from only allowing Brokers to vote and sit on the Board to allowing non-principals to act in those roles.
