KCRAR Members were recently sent ballots to consider changes
to the KCRAR Bylaws. There were three
proposed Bylaw changes and all three amendments passed with a resounding “YES”. One Bylaw change involved an update of the KCRAR Mission Statement (82% approval); another revision resulted in a change to the composition of the KCRAR Board of Directors (86% approval); and the final revision involved the makeup of the KCRAR Executive Committee (88% approval).

Updated KCRAR Mission Statement

“It is the mission of the Kansas City Regional Association of REALTORS® to serve as the regional voice of real estate and private property rights while providing innovative resources, tools, and education focused on member success and professionalism.”

Created four new at-large elected Director positions with the requirement that two of the four positions be held by Broker-Owners or Managing Brokers.
