Each REALTOR® firm appoints one of its principals as a "designated REALTOR®" (DR) for the firm. If any agents, brokers, or appraisers affiliated with the firm choose not to be REALTORS®, then the "designated REALTOR®" would be assessed a non-member assessment by NAR through the association for each non-member.

If any principal (DR) who otherwise qualifies for REALTOR® membership decides not to join a REALTOR® association, then none of the individuals affiliated with the firm can be REALTOR® members of a association. The principal(s) have what is called "board of choice," which means he or she can decide which REALTOR® association(s) in the state where the office is located (or contiguous to that state) to join.
