Job Description: Florida REALTORS® Director


The representative must be a REALTOR® member of the REALTOR® Association of Sarasota and Manatee (RASM) at least one year prior to selection. The representative must be serving or have served in a leadership position (officer, director, or committee chair) with RASM, or its predecessor organizations. Consideration will also be given to members who are currently serving or previously served on a committee with Florida REALTORS®, those who completed RASM’s Leadership Institute or the Florida REALTORS® Leadership Academy, and those who have attended Great American REALTOR® Days.


The Board of Directors is the governing body of Florida REALTORS®.  Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Approve the Association’s annual budget
  • Establish membership dues
  • Determine public policy positions as they pertain to the real estate industry
  • Approve governing policies of the Association
  • Approve member programs, products, and services
  • Enact necessary amendments to the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws
  • Recognize members for outstanding services
  • Elect association officers and NAR state-allocated directors
  • Attend the two regular meetings
  • Serve on at least one committee
  • File a written report on issues within thirty days of the meeting

Directors of the corporation have a fiduciary relationship toward the corporation and are required to use the utmost good faith in the exercise of their power in the interests of the corporation. A Director must perform his/her duties in a manner he/she reasonably believes to be in the best interests of the corporation, with such care as an ordinarily prudent person in a like position would use under similar circumstances. A Director is a representative of the corporation, not of the body that elected him/her. You represent all Florida REALTORS®’ members, not only those in your local association or real estate company.

A Director has a duty to come forward and identify any conflict of interest and also refrain from voting and discussion in those instances where he/she stands to financially benefit directly or indirectly.

Travel Reimbursement

Reimbursement for travel expenditures from RASM shall be limited to one night’s lodging, travel, meals in a 24-hour period (total not to exceed $130), tolls, tips, and self-parking fee. Reimbursement is contingent on attendance at both the FR District 13 Meeting and the FR Board of Directors Meeting. Any additional expenses incurred will be the choice of the individual and not reimbursable.
